Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

It's meee! Charlie! Or....Sherlock? I do love a good cape. I have a beautiful cape from Dorothy Perkins (that I'm also trying to sell- anyone?) a couple of years ago and everyone mocked me for it. Oh well, we suffer for style. My latest adventure into capes comes courtesy of Simply Be. I wanted a winter coat, but I didn't want to get my usual black and boring, so I decided to go for this tweed number.


When it arrived I really wasn't sure, so I left it on the hanger for a few days, but today I finally decided to wear it and I'm so glad I did! So many comments from people! I particularly love the way the belt nips it in at the waist (although the belt is pretty short).

Some casual posing at work...



Followed by some casual (and slightly insane) posing on the way home...



The only negative thing I can say about this cape is OH MY GOD MY ARMS ARE SO COLD. Once the belt is tied, that's it for your arms- they're staying out! Definitely longer sleeves tomorrow (and some gloves).
