A beautiful winter cape designed with petite ladies in mind? Yes please, I’ll be having that! As someone who stands at 5’3″, I struggle to get clothes that fit perfectly. My mum is forever turning up my trousers and jeans and I often have a seamstress shorten my coat sleeves, and sometimes even alter my dresses and skirts. Thankfully I was recently introduced to Pretty in Petite, a new online store catering for petite ladies. Horah!
When I was kindly invited to check out the new website and select my favourite item I instantly knew I wanted the cosiest cape. I own alot of coats and jackets but I’ve never owned a cape and thought it would be a welcome addition to my wardrobe. The soft grey colour of the cape and its elegant shape really appealed to me. When the cape arrived I was incredibly impressed with the quality of the item. It is made in the UK with British Wool and has a beautiful lining and pink detailing.
I really enjoy wearing the cape and feel quite powerful walking along in it (what with capes being synonymous with super heroes haha). There is a lot of fabric to the cape (which only comes in the one size) but I don’t feel swamped by it. I like that the length is kept short at the front and then long at the back. The only thing I missed when I was getting these photos taken was a scarf to keep my neck warm. I’m going to have to go shopping to see if I can get a nice woollen scarf to wear with it.
