OK, that's a lie. I don't really believe I can fly, no matter how well my meds are working. But I still want a cape. There. I said it. I want a cape. Badly. And I'm not going to get one, and boo hoo, and poor me, and life's a bitch and then you die, whatevs, but that doesn't mean I can't post lots of pictures of the capes from which I would choose, were I to be in a cape-buying position. See how I said "choose"? That's right. Even in my fantasies I am not some greedy, multiple-cape-owning maniac. No, I am clear-headed and sensible, and choose ONE cape in which to be fabulous. But enough about my cape fantasies. What do YOU think of my cape fantasies?

$??? (Don't Even Know Where I Got the Photo)

Vince Camuto, $100

Cole Haan, $775 (!!!!!, WTF, and I Know, Right????)

Via Spiga, $100

Toast, $??? (It Was In Pounds and I Am Bad At Math and Lazy)

$??? (But a Cape AND Plaid? Words Fail Me)
I have a few things to say. First of all, about those capes that look like they have leather trim. I will have you know that is faux leather. I TRY to be a good vegan. Secondly, you may be wondering how you keep your hands/wrists warm whilst wearing a cape, and I have the answer. Cashmere-lined opera length (hopefully faux) leather gloves. I even own a pair, except they are from before I went "full vegan" and they are real leather. I know, I know. Thirdly, who is going to go out and buy me one of these capes? I mean, none of you cheapskates ponied up for those earrings in my earlier post, so my hopes aren't high, but come on. Help a sister out. Anyone? Hello? Is this thing on?

Pin It!

These capes are awesome and you could totally rock one. My favorite is the Vince Camuto one. The faux leather trim is very nice and I could see it being both casual/rock 'n roll and also semi-formal/night at the opera. Love the toggle buttons too. Wish I could buy it for you!
