10 Capes You Should Buy + The 1 Cape That's Not In My SizeYou know that moment when you find the perfect coat (in this case it’s a cape) only to realize that one, is doesn’t come in plus size and two, the size that you could maybe fit is sold out…real tears are flowing right now!


From the moment I saw the above ASOS cobalt blue cape on my friend Rachel I know I wanted it.

Rachel works over at Global Grind and I see her in passing sometimes when I am freelancing at Hello Beautiful. I couldn’t even blurt out the normal, “Hey how are you today,” because this cape totally had my attention. I skipped past the particulars and quickly asked her where I could buy it. Unlike another friend of mine who got mad when I bought the same scarf, Rachel willingly spilled the deets without a second thought.

So I get home, log onto ASOS and because I just assumed it was for us big girls, I searched the curve section…nothing! So I did a Google search for the item and whoa…it’s a straight size. SHOCKER! I click on the sizes available and OF COURSE the size 14 is all the way sold out. I’ll accept this fate because maybe I don’t need a cape, I mean it’s 7 degrees in NYC!? I should get a real oversized coat, right.

Although I can’t have this ASOS cape, I searched for other capes. And wow, I found a few to swoon over. None quite like this blue one, but second isn’t so bad.

I kinda want them all. Happy Shopping!

    You know some people wear there regular coats as a cape. All i could think about is James Brown like if you get too excited and raise your hands the whole thing will fall off. So i am loving these coats because they are made specifically for that. I’m going to save my coins and see if I can cop one of these.

    Hey Ty!

    I know this is late but something about this post caught my eye. My coworker have this same exact cape from asos, the blue is gorg!! Although it’s not for plus size women, it can fit us! I wear a size 18 sometimes 20 depends because of my hips, I tried on her size 6 cape, she assured me it will fit and long be hold, it fitted!!! Like I said early, I know this is sort of late but I they have only a 6 available and although it’s old news, you can still get your cape girl!

    Great blog!
