OOTD – Cape and Cap

Posted on: December 29, 2012

Hello Friends, I hope you are enjoying the last Saturday of 2012

This afternoon it started to snow so it was a perfect day to take down the tree and remove decorations in preparation of having a clean house the first day of 2013.  Along with having a clean house, frying chicken wings, cooking collard greens and black eyed peas has been my New Years’ Eve tradition for many years.  Long gone are the days of hanging out at the clubs and popping Champagne bottles at midnight.  At midnight we are on our knees in prayer, then we eat and continue watching The Twilight Zone Marathon, my favorite episode is “Time Enough At Last” with Burgess Meredith.

Today I am wearing a handmade, fully lined, African mud cloth cape that my husband had made for me over 16 years ago.  I don’t wear it often but it hangs prominently in my coat closet and I’ll keep it forever.  It’s a one of a kind cape made by Nzinga Debrick, a friend of my husbands who owns Nzinga’s Cultural Connection a boutique in Wilmington.  The cape is trimmed in leather including the button hooks and the attached scarf matches the trim around the buttons and pockets.

The animal print cap belonged to my grandmother and I paired it with the cape to keep my head dry

Cool cape! I have watched the Twilight Zone marathon so much I know them almost by heart. Think this year we will stay in and bring in the new year without a lot of crowds but I have to watch the ball drop or else it’s not official 🙂

Thanks, I know what you mean but I always miss the NYC Ball Drop, however, this year I may watch this year in honor of Dick Clark. Be safe and have fun!
