Of course you’ve seen capes here before. And before. Here’s a wool plaid number, another Zara find.
I just kept layering on the navy here. I like how subtle this plaid is, both colors quite muted and dark, and the jumbo size of the pattern is appealing as well.
The hood is massive and somewhat bizarrely lined with this dark green feathery faux fur. It works, though, I think. Makes it nice and heavy, too.
Zara cape (out of stock online but they have a lot of others), Free People corduroys and tote, Sorel boots, J Crew scarf. On the lips: NARS pure matte lip cream in Terre de Feu (looks quite different in this light, it’s not quite this bright).
Can I just dress like Kerry Washington on Scandal, please? With a splash of dressing like Kerry Washington in life?
[Lyn Paolo, the Scandal stylist, is a bit of a genius. Interesting (well, you know, interesting to me. To people who are into closets and the things you put in closets) tour of the Scandal closet with Kerry Washington here.]
Can we all just?
Well, at least one of us can. The boots are not Olivia Pope*, admittedly, but the jacket is spot on.
*If you are not following this because you are not watching Scandal, you really should consider watching Scandal. It’s on Netflix! Just watch season 1, episode 6, OK?
I love me a bit of tweed. The peplum is a feminine touch here, and the mini cape overlay is just the kind of embellishment I like on a jacket. It’s slightly formal and just beyond what is strictly, functionally necessary. I begin to want a jacket very much along these lines. The seed is planted.
Posting the profile shot so I can point out this woman’s ridiculously long and awesome lashes.
Inspiring, no? Maybe it’s time to dig out those fake lashes I got to play with a while ago.
