I'm Wearing a cape... Fearne Cotton @ Very.co.uk

The lovely Jessica over at Very contacted me last week and asked me if I would review an item of my choice. Of course, I jumped at the chance! I had sooo many things to choose from, but finally with the help of friend I whittled my long list of 'loves' down to one thing. I wanted something that I didn't already have, and wanted something a little different to what I'd normally buy, so I chose this gorgeous Fearne Cotton @Very tartan/checked cape.

Verdict: The very first time I tried it on I didn't like it, but I'm pretty sure that was because I was wearing pyjamas and didn't have my hair done or anything. I put it on again today after I'd got myself ready and I love it now! In the third picture I'm wearing a belt around it, which is possibly how I'd wear it out, I put the belt around my body and around the front of the cape, I think it gives me a little more shape.

Quality: The material is very soft and seems like it could last well, it kinda feels like a fleece blanket so will keep me lovely and cosy in winter. I won't know the true quality until I've wore it a number of times!
Style: I think with a cape it's either love or hate. This is not the type of thing I'd wear shopping as it's kinda awkward, but if I had a boyfriend who could carry all my bags it would be awesome :)
Fit: I've got a size 10... which fit's me perfectly around the neck and shoulder areas. Obviously the rest of the cape is meant to be oversized but it's not too baggy that it looks silly.

The main thing I love about this cape is the collar, it gives the cape a very vintage feel. I just love little details like this on clothes as they can transform the whole look.

Worth the Price? This cape retails at £75. I believe it's worth that. Littlewoods are also selling this coat, but it's a fair bit cheaper on Very! As this is a celebrity collection it is obviously going to come up a little more expensive than normal. I think this cape really reflects Fearne Cotton's style. I love how you can have a slice of Fearne Cotton and her fantastic wardrobe, yet still have your own style while wearing this!
