A few years ago when shawls were all the rage, I got quite a few. I still wear them regularly - and people just assume its because of Big J being Spanish.
Now, I'm glad that capes are in style! I haven't seen any super-affordable ones in the stores yet, but found some quite cute ones surfing the web:
I really like this style, the length is good and it has those useful armholes. I am not sure of the fabric - it looks like it would catch on things and run:
This next one has great fabric - it looks like a sherpa jacket and would be great for winter. It looks a bit short though, and the sleeves are not very weather-proof being all open to the elements. It's probably expensive too.
My favourite, is this one which is an authentic traditional cloak and cape with a deep hood. I imagine it's similar to those in the books I read. There are 2 kinds, with and without the overcape. I like it with. I guess it somes with arm-holes in the cloak underneath. It looks over-dramatic for everyday use though:
I also found this poncho-y vintage cape: Check out the site

On another note, I've updated the look of the blog and have added a translator. What d'ya think?
