Red Riding Hood
This cape would be my version of Little Red Riding Hood’s cape. Though it lacks a hood, it is beautiful fur in a red mahogany color reminiscent of the fairy tale. I find that this cape is a good medium for those days I want to feel luxe and wear fur, but the weather isn’t cold enough. The cape design allows air flow underneath the cape so it does not retain as much heat as a traditional fur coat.
The greatest thing about this coat was that I purchased it on eBay for about $42 and it’s REAL FUR. That’s an obscene price for something genuine in mint condition. The cape has two side slits for the arms to provide movement, but my only regrets for this cape are that the shoulders are about 1″ too wide on each side, and it doesn’t have pockets. The additional width of the shoulders doesn’t bother me much, the sculpted shoulders provide a broad look that I enjoy. I wish this cape had pockets for my hands on cold days as I don’t usually bring gloves with me.
