With The Band.

It's outfits like these that really get me excited, and remind me why I love styling.Anything where I get to use my imagination.When I put clothes together I get inspiration from all things rock and roll, girl groupies on tour, the 1970s, America, the desert...

I've been on a hype ever since I got this cape. It's right up there as one of my season 'pieces', and gets to go on a wooden hanger on my rail, instead of a standard black plastic one. It's heavy weight, the diamond in the rough amongst my wardrobe of worn out clobber. Anyway I think you get the point, that I LOVE it. It's rosy gold hue is what makes this a dream for me. It falls right into my rocky, beachy, boho style spectrum, as one of the more pretty and romantic items. I have always put together outfits that have the contrast between beautiful and tough, so couldn't wait to wear the beaded cape over an old vintage t-shirt paired with ripped denim jeans. If you lost the jeans and where the long t-shirt as a dress then it would be such a WILD outfit for being at a gig after party, Almost Famous style. I love the whimsical notion of being all dressed up, with no where to go and for me, this look above encompasses that feel. Giving gorgeous feminine pieces a tough edge by dressing down and then going about something mundane, like smoking a cigarette whilst hanging out the washing. I have linked the cape below in a different colour way as it also comes in a blue/silver tone, really banging on a brunette.
