So yesterday I read a post about how capes are chic in that “I don’t even have to lift my hands to do anything but people can just come to me and do things for me. ” And I must say, I might have underestimated the power that lies in the chic nature of the cape until today. So I decided to wear mine on a lunch date at Red Cafe, Grahamstown with my friends today. Not only did I feel chic but having mentioned to my friend what capes actually did for people, she offered to carry my umbrella and someone gave me a lift back home after running errands down campus. For as long as it is cold I shall wear my cape.
