Cape and Lace

In today’s post is this Talbots Audrey sweater (tons of color options) yet again...soft cashmere + neutral camel has made it a quick wardrobe workhorse. I feel the less-common boatneck style gives off a classic vibe true to the sweater’s namesake. And 3/4 length sleeves mean no more chunky rolled-up cuffs for shorter arms. I'm wearing a Petite sz P (usually corresponds to numerical sizes 0-2) and the fit is not snug nor baggy.

I last posted this cape worn casually, and also wanted to show it as outerwear with a work-appropriate ensemble. With so much volume up top, I made sure to keep the bottom half more fitted, either with slim pants or a tapered skirt. I also love the look of a cape with over-the-knee flat boots.

  3. Shoot! I saw your post too late and missed the promo code for the dress. :( Hopefully there will be another one! I wonder if the petite sizing would be too short for me. I'm looking forward to your review!

    1. Kimi, I posted a brief review here...please note that photo is after clipping the torso back 3-4 inches so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who typically wears below a 0. It's adorable, though! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=730854926924826&set=a.267184426625214.75085.160326730644318&type=1&stream_ref=10

  8. I bought that navy striped dress in size 2P. It really is nice-- great fabric and pockets. The top fits a little baggy-- there's no shape to the bust. The waist is good. It's unfortunately short though. (I'm 5'1".) I don't think I can wear it to work. (Possibly with opaque tights and flats? I'll have to try it on. I wore it for Christmas, though, and it was great.)

    1. I agree with all your pluses and minuses, and am bummed mine did not fit. If you're 5'1" I agree it's on the border for work-appropriate length, but opaque tights and flats would definitely help. I also noticed the hem can be let down 1" which shouldn't be too hard!

  9. Thanks! I like the sweater and skirt ensemble. It's perfect for cold mornings and warm afternoons in California.

  10. I hope that the dress works out for both of us :) I ended up taking mine to the tailor today - she's removing a pleat on either side to de-puff it a little bit. I'm already excited to get it back!

  11. Gorgeous! <3

    Unrelated, but are you wearing any lip product in these pics? May I ask what it's called? :)

    1. Thank you! I'm not wearing lip color in these photos, just a generous coat of Aquaphor (recommended by my dermatologist and great for dry lips in the winter ; )

    1. I hope you like it! If you don't care for the fur trim either, I forgot to mention any tailor should be able to remove it and re-seal the hood.

  17. Camel and black is always such a lovely color combination! I love the lace skirt paired with the cape. I've been wanting a cape for awhile now, you've inspired me to start looking again...

  20. Hi Jean! I found that cape on sale and couldn't say no to it. Could you show how you took the fur off?
    Thank you for the amazing blog! *.*

  21. Whenever I wear black tights, I somehow always get holes into them! What is your solution (ie. is there a certain brand you buy that is thicker/more durable?)?
