Unboxing my Superhero Sweater with Jaeger

posted on: Thursday, 2 February 2017

And here I promised myself I wasn't going to add any new items to the closet in January. I have failed, miserably. There's no doubt about it. I'm pretty sure I failed in the first week, but the failures continue and the latest comes courtesy of Jaeger and a new knitwear collection that is too good not to grab hold of. 

I'll go ahead and tell you I've always had an obsession with capes. Not the usual fashion capes, I'm talking superhero capes here, the ones Superman and Batman sported. Only, I'm a grown woman and superhero capes aren't really acceptable in the real world these days. So, when I find a cape that is more or less a superhero in the fashion world, you bet your bottom dollar it's going to enter my closet. I am positively obsessed with this cape-back long sweater from Jaeger. It's the perfect length, the most luxurious fabric and an ideal "fashion-superhero-in-hiding" ensemble. Need I say more?

Well, I suppose I should also mention that Jaeger deserves a shout out for their insanely fabulous packaging these days. If you guys follow me on instagram, you'll know I'm on the hunt for all things yellow these days, as it truly is the color of happiness. When the superhero sweater arrived in these yellow boxes and bags I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Happiness-heaven exists and it comes delivered in the mail!
