    The cape is one of the most attractive and stylish outer garments for men or women. This short example looks great and you had another lady in a red longer version the other day who was knockout. They only place I see men wearing them these days is in Austria so I guess we'll have to let the ladies take the lead.

    Love the cape and the gold studs on the bag are divine. Also good use of layering. However the sunglasses dont fit with the rest of the outfit and annoyingly draw your eye away.

    The only bad thing with the cape is you get tired of carrying a bag and not change position to shoulder…. the wang bag will be a hit olover within the next couple of months-wait and see

    I love how she mixed the classic print on the cape with the trendy studded bag. But I would bet money that she threw this look together in two seconds

    This photograph may very well be my favorite since I started following your blog this January. I love her cape and the outfit is to die for. So simplistically elegant, and her accessories are perfect. To me, she typifies Casual Elegance. This is the look I strive for everyday of my life. There is a trace of Jackie O here, something from days gone by, but very modern all the same. Love it Scott!
