Last winter I had to check with a friend (who is an experienced mother of girls): “How many capes would you consider too many?” Thankfully her answer was: “You can never have too many capes.”
I love capes for little girls. Like playsuits, capes are one of those looks best pulled off by preschoolers. Last winter I lived vicariously through my daughter and her couple (or so…) of capes. It seems I’ll be doing the same this winter after I spied the divine Little Red-Ridinghood Cape by Patouche.
We reviewed Patouche’s spring collection last year and they have since added the piece de résistance to their collection – the Little Red-Ridinghood Cape. Made from Melton wool and lined with a sweet Japanese print of Little Red Riding Hood’s walk through the woods, this cape is the perfect thing for little girls who like a touch of ‘dress-ups’ in their everyday wardrobe.
Since we last checked in with Patouche, they have added their own online store to their Etsy setup. The cape is CAN$80 and the bonnets and pirate hats are CAN$38 a piece. Patouche will ship to Australia.
We have a fixation with capes right now and recently looked at the options for capes this Winter available in Australia.
