Ladies and germs, it’s giveaway time, and this one is going to heat your loins. Don’t be fooled by the above photos though, it is in fact as the title of this post would suggest a cape you are going to win. Up above are a couple of photos from a shoot I styled for an e-tailer called Style Etoile in July. With excessive access to Iro, Sachin + Babi, Anna Sui, Camilla and Marc and Wren threads, the day of outfitting was boatloads of fun. The girls behind the site aren’t too shabby either, and those burgundy Miu Miu glitter thigh highs just added to the, you know, fun. We had mimosas too. The shoot was featured in a fall Nylon issue, and now I’m sharing this wealth of knowledge with you. Do you feel smarter? Dumber? Neither? Well, with that out of the way, we can get to what’s important: free stuff! Among the several looks I styled, one particular Wren cape of the leopard print variety reared its jungletastic seams onto almost every outfit I’d put together.
It’s the perfect combination of insult and injury: leopard cape. That’s, caped crusader with an affinity for Fran Drescher…an epic win, if you will. Ultimately though, the shoot was about showcasing an eclectic variety of clothes so in the end, the leopard print cape stayed on just one look. This one. A basic look seemed an ideal way to let a leopard print cape take control of an outfit. You however, should feel no inhibition pairing it with excess sequins, prints, questionable silhouettes. It’s not too cold out yet so I’d say this giveaway is knocking on your door in perfect time, and when it does get cold, it’ll compliment a plaid scarf so well, you won’t know what to do with yourself. Stay away from open windows, I’d say. On to the mundane: the rules are simple, so simple.
