Capes and Kung Fu

The Sunday after Christmas, my husband & I spent some quality time lounging around, eating chocolates and watching movies!  Kung fu films have become our lazy day go-to on Netflix streaming, and we came across Red Cliff:

This is an awesome movie by the way.  I don't know if it qualifies as "kung fu" necessarily but for once, I was totally engrossed in a war movie.  At times, it seemed to fall together too easily for the good guys...but it was beautiful to watch, especially the carefully devised battles.

I was also completely smitten with all the capes!!  Here are a couple more capey shots:

Now that I think about it, cape-y pieces have been on my radar (and my To Do list) for some time.  It may have started with this Marni dress from Spring 07:


And then there's this look from J Crew last year--

I mean...I pretty much have to make myself a cape now.  But what direction to take it in...any suggestions?


  1. oooh, i love martial arts movies...:D definitely a comfort treat...

    and yes, cape-y clothing pieces are what mainly composes my closet...only cuz they're very safe but still stylish. i really don't like body-hugging pieces..haha!
