Spend, Save, Splurge

Technically it is still summer, but stores are filled with new season’s stock... must admit, I am looking forward to wearing layers and knits again! The blanket cape was a strong trend during the Prefall and Fall 14 collections and it seems many retailers have interpreted this look for the Australian market, perfect for those of us living in cooler climates like Melbourne. If you love this look, be aware it is going to be a passing fad, so it's important not to blow your budget on a one season wonder. Here are two great options in store if you want to create the look for less.

If your natural complexion has cool undertones, try this one is from Forever New.

Or if you have warm undertones, try this one from French Connection.
