Thank you all so much for your encouragement about the cocoon coat on my cape thread:
I'm glad you think it looks good on me. It is a new silhouette for me so it takes some getting used to. I will try to get back and respond to your wonderful comments, but have been rather busy the last few days. In the meantime, I did pull out the cocoon coat again, even though DH thinks it is "too big" on me. I don't think it is a duplication to have a purple cape and a purple cocoon coat (right?), since they don't seem to cover the same outfit silhouettes. Like I wouldn't be able to wear the cape with the black AllSaints dress, and the cocoon coat wouldn't work with the plaid fit and flare midi skirt. Hopefully there is not too much overlap, so I can justify keeping and wearing both!
With Rachy's recent thread about shadow personas, I realized that these two outfits demonstrate my idea of my shadow persona. The first outfit is my darker, edgier UWP shadow persona and the second outfit is my usual straight up polished ladylike luxe. Kind of like my good girl and my noir personas, LOL. I even have two different watches which is how I can tell which persona I am.

By the way, do you think this cropped sweater works on me, or are cropped sweaters not a good idea for apples?
