Lookbook: With The Cape And Wind

Here is the last outfit for the lookbook challenge of raiding mom’s closet. I don't own any capes but after trying on my mom's I am now a fan of them. They are not very warm, but it looks so cool when you're wearing one on a windy day.

I also apologize for lack of replies over the past few days. I got a 2nd degree burn on my hand from the hot water machine at my work while getting tea so I haven't been in a typing mood. I know, its as un-smart as the Avatar who bends air and water but don't know how to stop the army from the fire nation who travel by boats on the ocean. Don’t worry. I’m okay as my biggest worry is being able to hold my wii controller properly to play Spyro: Dawn of The Dragon. Gawd I’m such a nerd.







Cape: Vintage from mom
Dress: Vintage from mom

  3. aww julie! your poor hand. i can definitely relate with that...haha!
    one time i got tea and coffee from peet's. my bag strap was falling down and i had to fix it with the hand that was holding onto the cup of tea. a tiny splash of hot water got onto my shoulder and it gave me a blister and it hurt like hell for days!! another time i was driving and i spilled hot tea all over my lap. for some ready, my thighs didn't get burned as bad. the water go onto my butt too and i have scars from it....argh!!!

  8. Hahaha!! You look a super hero in your cape! I have some shorter ones, but I always feel silly wearing them out in public :o/

  9. Great taste runs in the family eh? haha Loves it! I personally prefer the capes with the slits for you to put your arms through, I think those are a bit warmer but look less super hero-y lol

  20. I've hyped you up one! :D
    Actually, I signed up for Lookbook after seeing you post it on your blog but I have not the photography skills or perhaps even the fashion sense to post one on my account. I can't believe how fantastic some of the people on there look, yourself included of course! :]

  21. Pop + Cape = very appealing, romantic image

    I was wrong about what generates the "noreply-comment" emails. The system assigns that address when a blogger does not share their e-mail address on their profile page--it gets treated as confidential.

    "I was wrong" What a relief it was to finally be able to say that after years and years and years of always being right. The pressure was awful. LOL!!!

  22. PS - The cape distracted me. I'm so sorry about your hand. I hope you're a quick healer.

  23. Poor you, hope your hand gets better in no time.
    The cape does make you look very cool, I love the things you find at your mom.
    P.S.Being a girl it's awesome, you can bake cookies and no one will find it weird.

  36. I love looking at your all Mom's clothes lookbook challenge. I think you've won the challenge hands down. The clothes look really amazing on you. It could even look like a whole new unique style of yours. Oh man, and the cape! I never expected someone in the 21st century to don a cape without looking like a super hero from the future but instead, like an individual from times long ago. You look like you pop up from a novel. Really love the whole new vintage look.

    I hope your hand is better. I've got 2nd degree burn on my hand from making soup in school during Home Economics lesson. My hand was practically cooked that time. So I understand how you feel. But I can't understand how to play wii. Hahaha..

    I hope your hand gets better soon and have a happy Wednesday!:D
