Ruched and Rouge

March 8, 2012

It's been awhile since I came across such an unique piece of vintage clothing. I found this cape coat on etsy last week and I had to have it. The velvet material is so soft and comfy, the rusty red color is gorgeous, and the coat is shaped so amazingly that I just want to spin around in it! As much as I love the look of capes, I am not a fan of wearing one. It just feels a little constricting and awkward. This vintage piece looks like a cape but it is actually a coat!!! How perfect! You might not be able to tell from the photos but there are giant buttons down front and you slide the end piece through the loop to create that knot like effect. I especially love the ruched details. Another amazing element of this coat is the fact that you can wear the collar folded over your shoulders or up like little red riding hood! This was such a great find!
