Cloud of Secrets said...

I love it -- the perfect play of mixed patterns, and I'm totally coveting the blue-green swirling flowers of the cardi. My favorite hues, and a pretty pop of rich color against the b&w.

Raquel said...

the Citizen Rosebud said...

i especially love the combination of two abstract floral prints, one very geometric and the other watercolory...and completely different color schemes! oooh, and i have to get me some petti-pants right quick. (brrr....!)

this is such a great cape and you wear it so well. i'm encouraged by seeing these more structured capes, the flowy romantic ones are too much for my bod. yay capes!!! steph
