I Like Capes, but I Hate Snape

Friday, July 15, 2011

Today is a day of mixed emotions for me. It’s that weird feeling that you get when you graduate high school or college and you say good bye to your friends. You know that you’ll see them again soon, but things won’t be the same.
Tonight, I will see the final Harry Potter movie. I know I’ll laugh, I’ll cry and or dress up (or all of the above), but regardless, I’m excited and sad all at the same time. I know that I will see my Hogwarts friends again – it’s just next time they will be filming a new movie in Pittsburgh or singing on Broadway. Things won’t be the same.

In honor of the HP finale, there is one trend hitting the runways that may be inspired by Hogwarts – capes. These are different than those ponchos that were popular  back in 2003 ( just tossed mine this past weekend!).

Raoul – Saks – Love this color and shape! I’m sure there will be more cost-effective options similar to this out there very soon. 

Rachel Zoe – Nordstrom – BANANAS! Love this cape from Rachel Zoe! Great color and perfect for WVU and Steelers games ; )

Marni – Outnet – This cape is a very versatile. Wear during the fall, wear to work in the winter – it’s really wearable.

Juicy Couture – Similar to the Marni cap, wear this during day and night!

If you want to add some HP pizzazz to your cape, add these cleve buttons from Etsy:
