Not only for superheroes: Capes

The problem with the Netherlands is that 95% of all people dress the same. It’s usually jeans and a leather bomber jacket for girls. So I want to give a large applause to all the girls (and boys) that dare to wear something different.

I have this soft spot for capes. Because I’m a wimp myself, I don’t wear them often enough. I always think I look like Sherlock Holmes when I wear a cape. Or Super Grover from Sesame Street. :-). But after seeing these pics I will keep trying!

This coat is pure perfection. I love the combination with long gloves and black tights.

I love the way the coat matches the colour of her hair.

Cool! Reminds me of Little Red Ridinghood (oftewel Roodkapje in goed Nederlands).
