Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my last post. I actually wasn’t trying to attack a specific person at all, it’s something I keep reading and had been planning to write about for a long time. But clearly a lot of you are quite upset so I understand that that post was the one place you could discuss recent events.

Enough of the ~drama though, here’s an outfit which I’ve practically lived in, I love it so much:

P1020756
ASOS Curve Military Cape

Simply Be Lace Dress
Evans boots

P1020755

I was kindly sent the cape from ASOS Curve to review, and I’ve rarely removed it from my person since! Apart from washes and sleeping, of course. It’s a lot longer on me than it is on the model, but I actually prefer this length as it gives a lot of cover. It’s a lovely quality knit, heavy without being uncomfortable. I wore  it to Offset festival this weekend I can honestly say it’s great for keeping toasty on autumn nights!

I teamed it with my Simply Be lace dress as I like the hint of lace peeping through underneath. I guess this is the most “on trend” outfit I have at the moment, although my Evans biker boots are absolutely battered. Perfect for festivals, though.

Speaking of Evans, Val and Em have found out some info about the latest Beth Ditto for Evans range: apparently it’s dropping in TWO WEEKS, and will be on sale at Selfridges, breaking their recent ban on plus-sizes. Interesting…

    I absolutely love the second picture! The cape is not something I’d try but it looks lovely on you.

    You know I love green but I’m still not sold on this cape :( Never been a cape person. It suits you though, very well.

    You know… Devon may not be sold on the cape but I AM NOW! I wonder if they have it in straight sizes too? Seeing it on a person who isn’t a model has totally sold me to the idea of a cape now :)

  • Lauren

    Louise, they DO have it in straight sizes – I think unless it says ‘ASOS Curve Exclusive’ it’s either the same or a reworked version of what’s available in the main ASOS site :)

    Here’s the link to the cape:

    I love the cape and too bad I can’t see your lace dress. Nice color scheme, blending in with nature, nice!

    Hi i think i saw you at offset festival in the vintage tent did you go? i like the cape.x

  • Lauren

    Thanks everyone!

    Gemma, I was indeed at Offset and the vintage fair was my favourite bit, couldn’t stay away! :) x

    I’ve been looking forward to purchasing this cape in navy, was the sizing good? I’ve been thinking of going down one or even two sizes since it looks like a roomy cape and since I’m not super tall I’d like it to hit shorter on my body. What are your thoughts/suggestions on this?

  • Lauren

    Hi Valerie, so sorry it’s taken me ages to get back to you!

    If you’d like to keep the cape short then I reckon you could definitely go down a couple of sizes, as it is indeed very, very roomy. Let me know what you decide to get! :)
