El-Buy: The Great Fall Cape 

Maybe I’m just really into super heroes.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the cool weather on the horizon and I think a cape might be a good move. Miss El-Yes looks absolutely lovely with her camel colored cloak.

Capes have been around for ages. The Industrial Revolution brought us factories, building materials, and fabulous fashion accessories like the poncho. During the Romantic Period, women’s garments featured very large puffy sleeves that could not fit into a traditional coat sleeve. Capes (called burnouses or paletots) were the answer.

Revive history and look amazing this Fall with a week full of capes.
