The Mad Plaid-er: Wearing a plaid cape is part of my method for "Blooming Madly."

 As obsessed as I've been with capes these past 10 years, I don't really wear them out much. I recently sold a number of capes from my decade long collection, as I realized that I wasn't going to wear them that often and 15 capes in one closet is really just plain ol' overkill. That said, this plaid wool gem from the 1960's is a recent addition and it's a real keeper. Perhaps, you've seen me wear it HERE. Well constucted, fully lined and warm, and with zero nonsensical frills, I love the streamlined look to this cape, and of course, the plaid print. So there's still a handful of capes in my closet and I'm determined to at least wear them once before our springtime warmer weather hits us.
Which groundhog shadow or no, is soon, as you can guess by the fact I get to wear shorts in February. Only in California, folks.
