Me, my 2nd Day cape and… Alexa!

Look! Me and my cape were number one in the ELLE hot 10 email the other week (thanks, Em, for spotting it). Yep, look at me, on the same page as Alexa Chung. Who'd have thought it!

I love that the picture was an impromptu shot, taken by photographer Stephanie Sian Smith as I was walking back to the office. It shows the cape in motion and the lovely silhouette it creates.

I'm so glad the cape trend shows no sign of waning as it's by far my favourite item of outerwear. The cape is by 2nd Day. Click here to see my previous blog post about it.

ASOS does a similar leather-trimmed cape (below). Available in black, golden honey and grey, it's £148. But, if you're quick, you can get an extra 10% off until 11.59pm tonight with the promo code BONUSTEN (and 20% off if you're buying partywear). Happy shopping!


  1. Great Cape, I bet that wasn't much of a bargain though! I have an Isabella Oliver one which I have had for a couple of years, so I am also glad they are still around x

  2. Ha, I think I need to define (or redefine) the meaning of bargain! Bargain doesn't equate to cheap in my book, it means something that's good value and quality for the price.

    Admittedly, the cape is an investment buy. But it's a classic piece that will last year after year, so I've justified it based on cost per wear (and that's what I've told the Stickman!).
