A rainy Fall day... the perfect cape weather. We made this 50's style hooded capelet, with hand embroidered initial, for just this very kind of day. It's made for the glamour girl, and also great for evenings - adding an elegant layer of protection from the elements, without any bulk. Even when stepping from taxi to event, you never know what a gust of wind could do to the carefully placed curls! Also drawing inspiration from 1950's fashion, I added a pop of pink to this otherwise all noir look, with a silk bow.
One of my favorite accessorizing combinations in cold weather, is pairing long gloves with wools & tweeds. Beau Gant has both 8 inch length (like I'm wearing today) and dramatic opera style length, perfect for a short sleeve tartan, or evening look!
