When a rare item like this deep merlot colored cape come along, we get a little excited and can’t wait to share! Made from glorious heavy wool in an absolutely thrilling hue (with a spectacular lining of the same weight wool, but in gold) this vintage nurse’s cape will keep you warm as well as stylish. Two button tabs (unfortunately, the bottom one is missing) and a heavy-duty hook and eye provide closure. A delightful little coin pocket in the left interior is perfect for storing a key, a hankie, or some pocket change. Pair with jeans, a sweater, and knee-high boots for a dressed-up casual affair. You’ll be so toasty and so striking!
