Monogrammed Burberry Cape

BURBERRY Colour Block Check Blanket Poncho, $1,395

Burberry's F/W 2014 show closed with models walking the runway in monogrammed capes (or rather, the "blanket-poncho" per Burberry's website), color-blocked in a check pattern and, did I mention, monogrammed? That's what makes this girl's heart go aflutter. And I'm not sure why. Vanity? Seeing your initials on a wool and cashmere Burberry canvas? Built-in anti-theft protection? The latter might come in handy (or not), because seeing these recent photos of Sarah Jessica Parker in her 'SJP' cape makes me think I could resort to larceny and a name change. Like ... Super Jealous (of the) Poncho. Oh, and this lovely cape will set you back one thousand three hundred and ninety five dollar bills. Yikes.

Russian 'style star,' Elena Perminova (read this Harper's Bazaar feature about her real life rags to riches fairy-tale story) dons her 'EP' monogrammed cape, and also another (non-monogrammed) poncho in a 'thistle motif' print from the same Burberry collection (both after the jump). Find similar ponchos in a variety of colors, here. I'm liking all the short skirts and dresses on these ladies (all photographed during London Fashion Week). But I'm liking SJP's casual pairing with denim even more. Like she just flung it on before heading out the door. And it looks so warm and cozy on her tiny frame. Really, check out those pictures. Or not. They'll make you want one so badly.
