I'm No Superman

This is the true story of how I became a Harry Potter villain.

A couple weeks ago, I purchased a hefty Groupon for Send the Trend, "Project Runway" winner Christian Siriano's online boutique for "personalized fashion accessories." Basically, you fill out a quiz about your style preferences, & Send the Trend curates a gallery of accessories available for purchase that are supposed to be up your alley. Needless to say, none of the accessories Send the Trend chose for me were things I wanted to wear. But, overeager as I sometimes am, that Groupon was burning a hole in my pocket! I figured out how to search for products that weren't recommended for me, & I ended up choosing two really cool pieces...
    

...and a cape:

Yeah. Riddle me this: Why did I think a cape would be a good idea? Alas, I cannot say. I was excited for it, even. When it arrived this afternoon, I tore open the package with glee & discovered... a glorified Snuggie. With a toggle clasp & a hood & no armholes. I mean, it's just as advertised - a legitimate, bona fide, superhero-style cape - but because I'm not a lovely, leggy model, it doesn't exaaaactly look on me like it does in the site photo. Yes, I know: Duh.

Because I truly have have no idea how to wear a cape, I mostly did this with it:


But I think Nathan really got it right when he asked me: "So, what time are you meeting up with the other Death Eaters?"

  1. Oooh, I really do love the jewelry that you picked out. As for the cape, definitely useful to have for a Halloween costume. :P I don't think I could pull off wearing that normally.

  19. I personally like the Death Eater pic more than the leggy model. Also your cape-wearing photos above are adorable and I love that you are spinning around. That seems like the most appropriate cape maneuver to me.

  21. Dude, I would wear that cape, AND JUST THAT CAPE, every day when I got home from work. "Caping" would be a new life-verb that meant hanging out on my bed eating ice cream and Netflix instant streaming while in a cape. So basically: SO JEALOUS.

    Also, I love you.
