Cape Weather

I checked the weather this morning and saw it was going to be 50 degrees.  That is the tipping point for when wearing my cape makes sense.  Warmth is not its greatest feature.

I bought my cape two years ago, and now I see quite a few girls wearing capes.  It's no biggie these days.  Well, at least to me.  Maybe not for others.  I generally get my own seat on the bus when I take the cape out for a spin.

During my halfday today, I went to the library to pick up my books on hold.  (An aside: the DC public library system's website is amazing.  Couldn't be easier.  Just type in the name of the book you want and they'll deliver it to your nearest library and you can run in and pick it up. If you don't have a library card, you are missing out!  It's a shame I waited so long to do this).

The librarian who checked out my books said "Nice cape."

"Thanks!" I said, a bit too eagerly.  Then I thought I should go ahead and say what everyone was thinking.  "It's a bit eccentric."

"But it's perfect cape weather," she said.

That's what I've been saying!  Finally, someone gets it.

Cape Update: The cape is now on American soil. Unfortunately, I wasn't around to sign for it, so I will have to wait another day.

The suspense is building!

Spotted this Halloween decoration in DC - a cardboard cutout of a goat in the window. Or at least I think it is a Halloween decoration, it could be like this every day for all I know (minus the pumpkin).

Who Wears a Cape? Pt. 2

I bought a cape. It is making its way across the Atlantic now, on its way to my apartment. Via gchat, I told my friend Amy this.
4:03 PM me: i bought a cape online
4:04 PM Amy: hahaha
me: no, not for halloween
for everyday use

Everyone thinks it was for Halloween. Bad timing.

What can I say, I'm a slave to fashion trends. Remember, I have been contemplating purchasing a trendy cape for some time.

My friend Julie is pro-cape.

1:25 PM Julie:i'm glad you're really doing this
1:26 PM
getting a cape

She claims that they were all the rage at this year's Treasure Island - hipsters have no use for sleeves apparently.

In fact, she was so persuasive that I got the color she liked best.

3:30 PM Julie: i like the green one
black would be kinda boring
haha because the last thing you want your cape to be is boring

I will report back when my ASOS cape arrives. D.C., get ready.
