My love for capes started at a young age. I remember my grandmother knitted me one when I was very little and ever since then I have always loved the way a cape would make me feel. Capes have been around for a long time. They were first seen in 1066 but it wasn't until the Victorian age that capes were being worn mainly by women when they really became a staple in fashion.

In the 20th Century the capes that were worn in the 1930's became a hybrid between a cape and coat. They were worn not just for decoration with an evening gown but also to keep a person warm. Capes come in all lengths, shapes, and fabrics which makes them such a fun and versatile piece to add to ones wardrobe. Not only are they comfortable to wear but they really do add a vintage touch. Whether the one you wear is true vintage or a reproduction it will make you feel amazing.
