Hats, capes and gloves - winter wardrobe

In today's post I share with accessories from my wardrobe that I've picked up from my past travels and also my love of capes! 

In particular, my hat and gloves (leather & Givenchy... squee!!!)
come from my 2011 trip to Japan. I was fortunate enough to see all the capital cities and the amazing ice sculptures in Sapporo before the devastating tsunami hit. 

Japan is honestly a beautiful country with beautiful people and hopefully one day I'll be able to return to Japan and experience it all again.

They also have super fast trains with temperature control (unlike ours in Sydney AHEM!). It's just so lucky I have this cape to wear in the mornings when the A/c suddenly switches on and all the carriages becomes colder than the winter air outside.









 (Ran away after seeing about one hundred spiders on the tree - OMG!)

Cape: Topshop
Necklace: Shieke
Blouse & skirt: Ally
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Gloves: Givenchy
Hat: unknown

Until next time loves!
xx B

    1. Thanks E! I'm glad you think so! It actually escaped me when I was writing this post that the cape can be channelled from the 60s! xx
