A Cape Story
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love fashion and those who couldn't care less about it. I obviously belong to the first category and like every fashion girl, my life is filled with non-fashion people. Brothers who do not get what a clutch is. Isn't that supposed to be in a car? Relatives who worry that I like my 'nightie' so much that I wear it outside and call it a maxi dress. Strangers who call me a garden because too much floral. Colleagues who call me Krish or Batman or *insert a superhero name here* because I'm wearing a cape. Wait! Can you fly in that? I wish.
I love capes even though they don't make a superhero out of me.I settle with the drama they add to my outfit. A little drama in life and clothes spices things up.
It is the perfect style addition, their superpower being to un-blah an outfit. This wonderful piece of clothing also does not give a rat's ass about seasons. Such blasphemy in fashion, no? No. Capes are the perfect all-year-round piece. This cape is perfect for summer and fall. It works great as a transition piece. These pictures were taken in January. You see the versatility?
I love the drapes in this cape and did not want to take attention away from it. So I wore it with a fitted denim dress, polka dotted socks and sneakers. These pictures were taken at Sunday Soul Sante in January where I was helping the Woodgeek store people with their stall. For all those who don't know, Sunday Soul Sante is a flea market that takes place in Bangalore twice a year. It is one Sunday of shopping, food and music. I hadn't shared these pictures because the quality isn't great. But here I am de-cluttering my drafts.
Tell me how would you have styled this cape?
