Cold Shoulders

I found this gorgeous “morning cape” inside a coat closet at one of my favorite vintage furniture/decor stores in DC. It looked like it was 100 years old and I have no idea what it was doing in the coat closet, which also looked like it was 100 years old, maybe they both belonged to the same person – how sweet. I didn’t buy it because it was very Edwardian, and long and heavy and a bit expensive, but it did give me the idea of getting a mini version of it and although I still haven’t found something that looks like it I have found some other adorable little capelets.
