What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 354: Caped Crusaders


Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once in a while.

For the last couple of days, it’s been the perfect weather for an outerwear cape. Those of you who live in a temperate zone know there’s only about 3 weeks per year when a statement that wacky can be made, so let’s not waste the opportunity! (If I had room in my coat closet, I’d totally buy at least one of these bad boys…)

For more Etsy fun, check out all my Etsomnia™ posts!

  1. I bet you could find something similar at Walmart. But I must admit that I really liked a couple of them today. Hal

  4. I love a cape but the season in which they can be worn here is definitely brief. There are some really gorgeous pieces in this selection.
