OOTW - Tartan Blanket Cape

This is my first EVER outfit post on Voluptuous Chatterbox and there's a very special reason why I chose it! I've been nervous about posting pictures for quite sometime but after yesterday I came to the decision that... I don't care what anyone says about me.. 

Ever since I first wore my cape in college there have always been jokes about me wearing a rug that you'd find at the back of a car.. These jokes have came from 1 guy in my class... until yesterday they didn't bother me until that is he said that it has a dog to match! That I'm a dog therefore it suits me! Normally I'd get upset but I didn't.. I was composed and carried on with my work. (Nosying on New Look instead)  But it was humiliating and I know in myself if someone says something about me or what I wear I wouldn't wear it again but I love this! 

So today... I've decided to do my first outfit post. I'm not to sure what I add or what to include but I will get the hang of it. :) 



Thanks to my sister for taking the pics! :) 

Tartan Blanket Cape - New Look £19.99
Green Top - £6

  1. I really like this wrap! They're so easy to throw on and comfy, particularly if you're spending the day at college. If this wrap wasn't so lovely I'd be inserting it where the sun doesn't shine- your classmate is an idiot! xx

  2. That cape looks great on you and your whole look is really well put together and flattering! I tried one on very similar in House of Fraser and loved it! However it was purple and green check and I was looking for a plain black one so my hubby made me put it back (meanie).

    The kid with the insults is such a typical bully you must be so bored of him, that's probably why he thinks he's so clever in stepping it up a notch; but you've blown him out of the water with your response! You are a smart, sassy young woman and, for whatever reason (we all have our demons) you clearly scare the hell out of the little boy he still is inside. I hope you're proud for making such a life-affirming decision not to let the b*****ds get you down; I wish I'd had your courage and maturity at your age.

    But enough of that. I like your style Kerry-Ann, and look forward to seeing more of your outfit posts!

      That's exactly what I am! Bored with him, it's the same old thing. Can't he think of anything different? Thank you, you've no idea what that means! :)

  3. I think you look amazing and the colour of that wrap is fantastic. I agree with Charlie if the wrap wasn't so amazing you should stick where the sun doesn't shine- he is a prize tw*t!!! xx

  6. The cape is lovely, I really like it and must say it is something I have never worn but I am well tempted be over damn spending ban! The boy in your class sounds like a total knob jockey! Wear it with pride and tell him if he is nothing and you really don't care about his opinions and his own style aint all that (I'm sure its not) anyway keep being splendid and rising above the fools that share our oxygen!

  8. Cute cape, and don't let a-holes get you down. Your first post is great, but I will suggest not having the light behind you. It makes the front of your outfit look dark, and we can't see the details. Taking pix outside usually has the best lighting.

    1. Thank you, I'm glad you think so! and massive thanks for the advice, I realise what you mean and will be careful not the make the same mistake twice! I had no idea it would look that dark so I really appreciate it. :)

  9. I think you look fab, and as all the others have said here you should continue to ignore that idiot in your class. The cape works really well on you and I like how you've teamed it with jeggings to keep the look simple and effective.
