vintage dresses and brand new capes

blue-cape Happy Friday to you! I completely misjudged the weather today because it's sunny but windy and the wind is ICY, fresh off the glaciers, so when I got home I decided it was the perfect time to show you my amazing cape from The Professor's Daughter. I met the designer, Mariska, earlier this year and she is absolutely lovely – and is a Melbournite who loves colour, hooray for that! – and she very kindly surprised me with this beautiful piece a little while ago. I love the colours – aren't they perfect with red hair and blue eyes! I also love that it matches my vintage secretary dress (although the light bounces off the cape a bit here and hides that fact, boo) and I had it in my head that I was going to wear them together and this is why I only wore the cape now... this dress was a bit, um, firm through the rump during the winter but now fits perfectly. Far from ideal timing but hey, I'll take it! I should get some wears in before it gets too hot! Tomorrow is meant to be freeeeeezing, so maybe then... we'll see! blue-dress a blue-cape d I am listening? What? I don't even know! x blue-cape c

Hi Marianne, how do you get your photos to look so beautiful when you take them indoors? Is it photoshop or have you got special lighting?

How perfect is that cape?......I need to get some nice winter ones, I keep looking out for one. I'm in London in a couple of weeks, so I'll have a mosey around then.
Love it - and yes, your right, it works perfectly with red hair and blue eyes. That dress is divine too :)
