So I have to say, I have recently fallen back into my guilty pleasure...Gossip Girl. Yep, I can admit it. I have a true addiction to the show and am starting my third time through watching it. When the show actually aired on television I was not a die hard fan. I don't even think I watched at all. It wasn't until about five years ago, while I was living with my sister-in-law in Auburn, that I decided to tune in on Netflix. I had a feeling that I would fall in love with the story line, due to the fact that I love New York, but I never really understood just how much I would love it. Maybe it was because of my love of NY or maybe it was this life that I was living through the characters on screen. I am not sure what it was, but I quickly channeled my inner Serena van der Woodsen from all things fashion, to travel, to that New York lifestyle and I LOVED it.
So as I said earlier, I truly love Gossip Girl, and New York City. Which also plays into my love of fall/winter fashion. I love winter coats, cashmere, hats and scarves. BUT, I live in Louisiana which is basically a sauna. Which also means I do not get to wear my cold weather clothes often, and when I do, I sweat A LOT. But oh well. This Autumn Cashmere cape is way too good not to wear. From the moment I saw this cape (on my friend Paula), I fell in love. For this look I paired it with my faux leather pants and these killer velvet heels from Dee Keller. I have also worn it with a faux leather skirt and over-the-knee boots, which was PERFECT. Basically, you need this cape because it is all things cute and cozy.
