Take 10 ~ ASOS

Photobucket
My second challenge for the Take10 Project is this camel cape from ASOS. I think we were all pretty excited to receive this. It's a beautiful piece that will work through many seasons. I see myself getting a lot of wear out of it with both dresses and trousers, I am a keen fan of swathes of volume so this cape gives me just that. And it has a certain Britishness to it in style, almost Burberry-esque, so I saw the traditional British Royal Mail Post Box as the perfect accompaniment. See below how the rest of the girls wore theirs - MJ ~ Sarah ~ Sabine ~ Sherin ~ Jazmine ~ Vicki ~ Adele ~ Jen ~ Ellie

I have this cape in black, but now I'm kinda wishing I'd braved the camel! I love how you've styled it as well

Martini Lamartss said...

You look gorgeous!!!! Beautiful cape and love your dress and your hat... Oh I like all the outfit and the pictures!

Cloud of Secrets said...

I haven't seen classic camel work well on a very fair, cool-toned woman -- until now! I love how you've done it, with the sharp black and rosy red makeup for contrast. And your use of the setting is magnificent. I love the "she's vanished?!" effect of the picture with just the hat and gloves.

I think this is my favourite of all the looks for this challenge.

I love this project. I have a cape very similar that I got last August from Topshop, and I love it.. it feels so much more special than a regular coat and the colour seems to go with everything!

Helen said...

Oh I love these photos! Polaroids & postboxes, gorgeous :)

Danni and Maria said...

I am in awe of how beautiful, elegant and poised you always look and the red lips and postbox WERE the perfect accompaniment :) Another gorgeous look my dear!

Filipa said...

Paula, I LOVE your dress! Yea cape is good too, but that dress is amazing! Do you know if you can still get it from Zara? I saw someting similar on Asos but I would rather get the original! :P

Lilly of the Valley said...

such a gorgeous hat!!! ive been looking for one like that for a while now- which is crazy because id never get to wear it here in oz, but i love the whole russian look. xo

MJ said...

You look AMAZING. That hat is awesome!

Roz said...

Yours and Jazmine's were two of my favourite looks - and what a great piece to style! I currently own about seven or eight capes. They are incredibly versatile pieces, and somehow add whimsicality to what on wears! I also love the whole idea here with the polaroid picture next to its subject. Oh & I'm always one for a fur hat!

Roz said...

Oh and if you don't mind me asking, how did you become involved in the Take Ten challenge?

Alice said...

I love how you wore this cape. I like the cozy hat.

You are so gorgeous, Paula!

PinkBow said...

Thank you all so much for the encouraging comments!

Fillipa - I bought it in the uk in Feb & saw it in Barcelona in Dec but can no longer see it on the website :-(

Roz - thank you! I loved Jazmine's too, hers was my favourite. And of course I don't mind you asking how I got to take part, I was asked a few months ago when another member dropped out. Although it's a shame when there is a dropout, I think it also keeps it quite fresh! This was only my 2nd challenge but it's fun to come up with a concept, sometimes on pieces you wouldn't necessarily choose for yourself.

fanny said...

you look amazing!

The Robyn Diaries said...

You make that cape look amazing, your look is definitely my favourite of the 10!!
