I've chosen to leave the aviator to those who can afford Burberry this A/W and to wear capes instead. I snapped up this vintage cape on ebay for £15 back in February and only wore it a few times before Spring set in. This season I plan to live in it.
It is wool with a cosy fleece lining (unlike my new asos.com version) and I love the military button detailing on the front and shoulders. The cape also has a name in it - E.Anne Kipatrick. I wonder how old it is and who she was? I often wish I could step back in time to see where my vintage clothes have been in their previous life...but I guess I'll just have to provide it a new life instead.
I've mixed it up with my black zip dress is from Whistles, my biker boots from Oasis and my bag is Alexander Wang. I am hopeless at braiding my hair so Hershesons Blow Dry bar did this for me last night. I kind of feel 5 years old again with my braids but quite fancy them at the same time...
What do you think of braids? They seem to be this season's hottest catwalk trend and I love the recent hair at Sass & Bide for their 2011 show. You can see it here.
