Who's that I see walking in these woods?

I know that capes are probably a taboo subject this week, but this was one of my favourite outfits from the past week or so, so here it is. I think this outfit consists of a lot of my current wardrobe fall-backs.

I've worn this Little Red Riding Hood print dress quite a few times already, since I made it. I love the fact that the range of colours lend themselves to being matched with all kinds of colours. And obviously I couldn't resist teaming it with this cape.

I've been loving these brogues a lot lately as well. And thick coloured tights are always a winner whilst the weather threatens to turn snowy, again.

  2. This is such a cute outfit, I love that you paired the red riding hood dress with a cape. I was so close to buying a cape in a charity shop today but wasn't fully convinced I liked the feel of the wool.

    1. I even had this cape in mind when I was making the dress, so I'm glad I remembered to wear them together.

  3. I always love your handmade dresses - I'm so jealous you can do this and a bit gutted you didn't include some of your own creations in Frock Swap ;-) Yes, Edna (and Madge) say, 'No Capes' but I think this is gorgeous xx

    1. Yes, I guess the red and green together are pretty festive.
