I have been on the hunt for the perfect cape for a couple of seasons. Either they were too big or not broad enough to sit properly on my shoulders. I was this close to giving up, but this season between the cape blazer and so many other options for capes, I went back on the hunt. Mango plus size line Violeta has been on my radar for a while, but unfortunately some of the pieces I bought in the past from them did not fit. I saw this cape from them, and I had to give it a try. I went with their size L which is equivalent to a size 18.
I am glad that I took a chance on this cape. I am able to move around and it looks great. I am surprised how warm it kept me. I was heading out to run some errands so I kept it simple with a sweatshirt from Eloquii and my super stretchy jeggings from Forever 21+. Sweatshirts in the fall replace my tees as my go to staple. There is not one sweatshirt I own that I can not dress up with a great pair of pants or a skirt. Weekend runs call for a good pair of flats. My flats are from the Adam Lippes for Target collection that dropped last month. There are still some goodies from this collection on the site and these flats are $21!! Along for the ride is my Kate Spade crossbody which easily converts to a clutch.
It took a while to find the right cape, but things happen for a reason. The fashion gods looked out for your girl, and now I can walk around the city looking fab. I was determined to get a cape, but more than anything, the fit had to be right. I am glad that I tried and tried many versions before I found the one. I received so many compliments while I was running errands on my cape. Thank you Violetta for Mango!!! Muah!
