You 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.
