Capes, Because You're A Retro Superhero

Every morning I do a little dance to get my puffy sleeve shirt into the warm and tight sleeves of my jackets. 3/4 sleeves are the worst. Whether they cluster at the elbow or (eek!) armpit, fishing them out is really annoying. Capes are a great way to avoid the sleeve dance, and they always make me think of early 1970s super spies. Since I'm bottom heavy, I'd get a cropped one or one that cinches at the waist but has free arms. They look great with pants and pencil skirts.

I absolutely love that Jolt Cape from Nordstrom. Love!

I was just thinking about needing a cap this morning when I got dressed. I wanted to wear my kimono sleeve top, but I have no jackets that will co-operate.
