Cape-able of Anything

Here's the thing - I LOVE adding elements to an outfit that make people turn their heads. Something unexpected that maybe you wouldn't think of. Like these gloves, for example. Aside from their resemblance to dish gloves (if you didn't see it before, you see it now), I think they are fabulous. They turn what would otherwise be a pretty simple outfit into something festive and glamorous. When do you ever get to wear long, formal leather gloves? Exactly, never, so why not do it whenever the heck you want? Plus, when you're wearing a cape, you need something to keep your arms warm! Speaking of capes, this one from H&M (similar here) was a steal, and it has the ability to make an outfit a bit more special. It's also nice when the weather is mild, like it's been in Denver. Carly and I had to travel into the mountains just to find some snow for this look. I'm ready for a White Christmas - anyone else?
