It seems fitting to begin October outfit posts in orange and black, although thankfully not a too literal interpretation of that seasonal combination. This outfit might just be autumn personified, even if the trees behind me haven't quite heard the cries around the northern hemisphere for fall color. A cold front blew in this weekend, so perhaps dying leaves aren't too far away (is it strange that we enjoy watching leaves die?). I'm pretty excited to start wearing tights again, because monochromatic legs and shoes are kind of amazing. Also, thanks to Chicwish I have another cape to add my collection. The buttons don't seem very secure, but I really like the fabric and haven't noticed any other flaws in construction.
