Ahh, sometimes you can’t fight it. You see something that doesn’t seem like it should work but you love it anyway.

If you looked at all the elements of this cape individually they make no sense but together… together it becomes super CAPE.

Never in a million years, would I have thought that fur tails would look this hot. This is not something that I’m drawn to in real life. I’ve seen people rock the raccoon tail and sometimes it works but most of the time – correction – 98.5% of the time it fails miserably.

In fact, I’m usually really skeeved out by fur with the head, legs and/or tail still attached.

So, in what world could I have imagined that multiple fur pellets with dyed red tips would cause me to fall into fashion lust? Not this one.

It’s hard to tell whether the cape is black or blue but I’m leaning towards a midnight navy hue, which makes me like it even more.

Let’s not even get started on the popped collar with the huge jeweled necklace on display. Or the exquisite earrings. All together, I have to admit it is ridiculously over the top- but – I love it. lots.

This is a cape you wear when you want the world to know that you are boss. That you are a bad. ass. chick. who could care less what others think of her.
