OOTD | KATE’S CLOTHING CAPE REVIEW

 photo Untitled-4_zpstfgulmfh.jpg

I’m loving the witch vibes this cape by Necessary Evil is giving me. You all know that I love witches (by my many witch themed outfits), so I happily got out my little cast iron cauldron, “teen witch” pin and a vile of real cat fish bones to pair with it.

Kate’s Clothing sent over this little gem for me to review. If you love goth clothing or alternative clothing, be sure to check them out! I was actually surprised to find out that Necessary Evil is a house brand of Kate’s Clothing. It’s a brand I’ve been seeing everywhere since I was a little baby bat hanging out at the local goth shop.

This cape is pretty awesome. I was surprised with how versatile it is compared to the other blanket capes I own. While my blanket capes are super billowy and huge (great for winter) this little guy is surprisingly flattering and hits at just the right height on my thigh for my stay-ups to show.

My only negative thoughts are the buttons. For some reason they decided to put a small covert button in the inner clasp and a big toggle for the outside clasp that’s loosely held in place using a ribbon. Which is rather annoying because it doesn’t hold it in place very well and looks super awkward (you can see it in the last image below).

Other than the awkward toggle, I think I’m going to get some serious use out of this cape. Considering it is, well, a cape. Would you ever wear a cape? I think we should bring capes back! Who’s with me?

  1. As a fledgling Goth, I re-purposed a velvet skirt into a little cloak. It was very cute from afar, but my sewing job was not the greatest. I no longer have it, but this post inspires me to try making another one for Fall. I like the material on yours, and I like how it drapes.

  2. The cape really has a witch vibe haha!
    I adore it, I don´t have any cape, but I was thinking about buying one since I proved one at a shop last week, it was of wool (is winter now here in Brazil) and I felt so elegant, like I was in the 60s! 🙂
