"PRINCE CHARMING, PRINCE CHARMING, RIDICULE IS NOTHING TO BE SCARED OF."

Listening to: Prince Charming- Adam and the Ants

I am massively excited to tell you all that I have bought a new camera and it will arrive soon!! I'm so excited to get a new camera- not only will the quality of photos increase but I will also be able to take photos independently (so no more relying or reminding Chris).

Other than that very little has happened over the last few days, apart from some very lazy hours with Chris (we NEED to increase our DVD collection), buying some new Cd's for my car (after someone has broken off my aerial- 99% sure I know who did it) and being once again called into work from the depths of sleep from poor management (was completely out of it this morning I couldn't even find the decaffeinated tea).

I'm very very happy I have finally found a new winter coat- this beauty of a Cape from Boohoo.


Cape: Boohoo
Scarf: New Look
Disco Pants: Ark Clothing
Wedge Sneakers: Tophsop
Bag: River Island
Bracelet: Prairie Charms

Don't get me wrong, I love my faux fur coats- but I wanted something more casual, and something I can take of in a pub/ shop without it needing its own chair (and go out in the rain with). For me a cape gives you this lovely shape, mixing somewhere between casual and chic but also being so cosy and snugly. I felt like I was wrapped in one massive hug all day! I found it near impossible to decide 'the perfect cape'; torn between this chic Camel cape from ASOS Marketplace, this 'multipurpose' Navy cape from ASOS, and this 'casual' Tartan cape from Boohoo.


In the end I choose the grey cape I own purely because I though it not only looked very smart and chic, but could also be very casual and would go with almost anything, but mostly because I seem to own very very little grey and wanted to give it a go. What do you guys think?

  12. You definitely made the right choice of cape I think. I've got a grey cape too and it goes well with a lot of outfits. I can't bare my arms in Scotland's Autumn season though so I wear knitted jumpers underneath mine.

  26. You look so pretty in these photos - your hair REALLY suits you like that. It looks like it's changed shade a little too? Have you dyed it or is it just the lighting?
    That cape is lovely - perfect for winter. I'm going to be relying on faux fur coats, leather and denim jackets this A/W. Wish I could pull off an amazing cape like that but because I'm so tall, I just feel a bit lanky in them!
    What camera did you get in the end? Can't wait to see the results!

    1. Thank you- it's my messy hair look when I haven't washed it for days. It had been dyed but its actually dyed the sane tone as before- but where my roots are a lot lighter it'sframed my face a lot brighter.
      I was worried bejbg large cheated a cape wouldn't suit me but it does- so give it a go.
