Sammydress Cape

97 comments




Cape: Sammy Dress, Shirt: Tokito (similar), Skort: Boohoo, Boots: similar, Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs, White studded bracelet: similar, Pear Bracelet:  love this similar one, Bag: similar

After a 5 day heatwave in Victoria and temperatures soaring above 44°C (111°F), the weather has finally become moderate again and I was able to wear my cape from Sammy Dress. Who would have thought that after 5 days of staying indoors in my air-conditioned house to avoid melting I'd spend the next day wearing a shirt, stockings and a cape? That's Melbourne mornings for you!

I've been loving the over the should look with coats and blazers and it's a common practice among fashionistas attending fashion week. And whilst I love the look, I feel like sometimes it looks awkward when I try to replicate the look on myself. I'm not chic enough (sad face), but the answer to my fashion prays is a cape. It gives that trendy over the shoulder look without it looking like my blazer is about to fall off my back.

What's your thoughts on cape and the over the shoulder look?

  54. Oh no. I definitely think you're chic and stylish, but the coat/jacket as a cape thing as a whole is awkward. You can only move your arms around at a minimum (like a t-rex). At least with an actual cape you can utilize your arms freely. I really like your asymmetrical/origami skirt. :o Also, you have some crazy weather. I thought I was melting here with 87 degree weather; you proved me wrong. :P
