Cold Front Cape

September 19, 2011

(Karen Walker Sunnies, Anne Michele heels, Seven for all Mankind Dojo denim, Forever 21 Cape & Clutch, Anne Kline blouse, Seasonal Whispers bracelets, David Yurman bracelets, Michael Kors watch)

I actually snapped these pics a few days ago when a random cold front/rain storm hit Lubbock. This little tease of fall got me giddy to pull out my "Sherlock Holmes" inspired cape. I picked it up at Forever 21 last season for a mere $50 and literally fell in love. I cannot wait for it to STAY cold and I get to layer this baby all the time... eek!

I wanted to do a polished but somewhat casual feel with this look, which is why I added the wide leg trouser denim instead of a cropped black trouser (like I'd planned on). I wanted to showcase the fact that you can totally wear dressier fabrics with denim and pull it off. This blouse is silk (usually more dressy), but it pairs with denim and my beloved cape perfectly. Throw on a huge heel and you, my friend, are ready to take on the world... or a mystery. ;)

Do you guys pair dressy with denim?

  3. I agree with your styling tips! I like to wear dark denim and dress it up with sleek heels and silky blouses. So polished and chic! Love your style!

  4. I LOVE this!! You look so glamorous and chic!!! The cape is fabulous and I love the blouse and arm candy!!! :)

  5. LOVE this Dev.. you look so classic chic! I am dying over your cape and you must tell me what lipcolor you are wearing. I've been on the hunt for a darker more cranberry-esque hue for fall and winter! :)


  6. I can't believe this cape is from F21! It looks very high end, and you styled it perfectly.

  7. I love this cape! What a great F21 find. You pulled together a great outfit. I just got a cape from Express and I can't take it off.

  8. Love this cape, gorgeous look!
