Did I mention capes in my last post? Couldn’t resist this rather smart brown herringbone tweed example, £20 from the Geranium Charity Shop for the Blind off Marylebone High Street (good posh stuff in there). Ah, the joys of working up that way again, and going for a lunchtime wander… It’s been hand-made, but to a good standard, and I like the covered buttons. The other good thing about this cape is that it is not only a great shape on, but also wide enough to wear whilst cycling.
However, in the interests of maintaining control over my wardrobe and adhering to the one-in-one-out policy for bulky new acquisitions, I have to say goodbye to an old favourite, this fluffy orange and blue mohair number (£7 some years back from a charity shop in Lewes). I always had the suspicion that it may have made me look like a madwoman, and now I have this slightly more sober and classic tweed number, I think it’s time for it to be rehomed.
