    How can I pull this off w/o looking to overdone? I want to get a faux fur cape and maybe wear it w/ jeans. Yay or nay?

    I like the first one-very cool :flower: The second one is a bit frumpy imho.

    Yeah I love the first one too. You can wear those glittery capelets over tops with jeans like Drew Barrimore wore to VMAs.

    I like the second one better, it looks amazing on... So classic 50's


    the first one could look good with a sweater underneath, but risks looking urban, but if you like that look, then go for it.

    The cut of the first one is a bit too Kate Hudson/flower child-esque for my taste

    the first one can totally add spunk to the average jeans and turtleneck outfit this winter. the second one takes a bit more effort to not look like it's overwhelming the outfit. to play into that whole ladylike thing that's going on, i'd get a lot of brooches and pair the cape with something unstructured and (perhaps?) frilly. i'd definitely do a skirt of something, it's just going to be difficult to not look like you're wearing a costume. also it would look perfect with an evening gown in a complimentary color

    i like both but the second one you could probably take it somewhere and have them cut it and make it look more modern. But that's if you want to change the look of it.

    I like the second one best, especially with a pencil skirt. Deadly.

    The first one I would wear it with either a chunky cable turtleneck, cropped jeans or cropped pants, boots (Avoid uggs) either cowboys or a preety sleek style, OR, you can wear it with a skinny black turtleneck, skinny cigarette jeans or pants, cute pumps or boots :heart: ..you can wear that also, with a cute simple dress, and tie it up with a complimentary color bold silk ribbon, or black leather if u wish to stay up to date, a la Gucci.

    With the second one, I would wear ot with a dress and I would not wear it like it's supposed to be worn, I would throw it on my shoulders, and one of the big lapels that hang would go across my chest, and held with a cute pin. Or I would do the same with jeans and a shirt...there's so much you can do with those :heart:
