February Reds

I don’t know if it’s a subconscious thing but I have been gravitating towards red for the past two weeks. Red is all over my Instagram feed, it’s my favorite way to brighten up black, stores are showing nothing but red and then NastyGal keeps on sending me ads for red bras. Anyway, because of these subliminal messages and the red cinnamon bears I’ve been slowly eating, I’ve been really trying to figure out how to wear this plaid cape in more exciting ways than just with a dress and boots.

So, in doing my “research” about how to wear capes, I have fallen down a rabbit hole known as Gossip Girl fashion. I’m sure that had I known about this show when it was on, I would have been obsessed. No one wears a cape, pussybow and beret as well as Blair Waldorf. See evidence here.Sure, some of the looks are a little dated but classy never goes out of style. Expect a lot more XOXO, Gossip Girl inspired looks this month.
