|A Beautiful cape on Holly via The Sartorialist|
As a self-proclaimed slave to fashion, I am always shopping; in stores, online, past windows, people, and through magazines full of thumb-tabbed pages. Since I am constantly in pursuit of cute clothes, I am not one to turn down a good deal when I see one. This should be fairly evident based on the number of outfits I cobble together from my beloved Marshalls, Target and Filene's Basement. Alternately, when a piece is so special that nothing else will compare, I'm happy to pull the extra bucks out of the back of my wallet and splurge. That being said, I really want a cape for fall. I know capes are trendy, but I wanted one last year and I firmly believe a well crafted, wool, neutral color cape will be wearable far into the future.
With so many beautiful options out there, should I save or spend? In other words, should I be a frugalista or a fashionista? Here's a few options ranging from super reasonable to somewhat splurgy.
|Nordstrom Rack - $69.99|
|BB Dakota via Piperlime - $89.00, Modcloth - $99.99|
|Calvin Klein via Macy's - $154.00|
|Via Spiga via Macy's - $154.00|
So, what do you think, or do you know of any other $200 and under options? I'll be cape questing this weekend, taking myself to a movie (or two) and brunching with some of my favorite girls.
