    when you wear a dark colour on the upper half of your body, you've got to match it with a colour of similar intensity on the lower half. the same 'rule' applies to light colours. like, for example, pair a light blue shirt with a grey skirt.

    if you do not have dark eyes, ignore what i just said.
    Yep, I've got dark eyes. Interesting! Thanks for the tip.

    Ok, I've been wearing the cape more often (generally with jeans and riding boots). I've noticed a few strange looks, which the boyfriend reckons are mostly confusion - like "What is that? Is it a jacket? Wait... she's wearing a cape?!"

    But meh, I've been feeling less self-conscious and more awesome. I've concluded that people wearing clothes that are visibly too small for them, leggings where their pants should be, stained sweatpants or ugg boots in public really aren't in a position to question my sartorial decisions.

    Wearing the cape is like the kick I get out of wearing a suit... I feel stylish and kinda dramatic. It's lovely and warm, too.

    Yeaaaa! Good for you! See if a few don't start trying to copy-if they can find one. Love it!

    It's not what you wear, but how you wear it!
    I think you can wear almost anything, as long as you wear it with attitude & confidence!

    I wore it to a horror-themed fashion launch party (I know... random theme) last night as part of my "hot, modern vampire" costume.

    What? You don't own a black cape and then not wear it when you actually need to dress like a vampire, albeit a fashionable one. It must have worked though. I got my photo taken for the social pages of not one but two local magazines.

    Yes. Looking like a drunk vampire.
