Now I don’t usually proclaim to be much of a money saving mogul… but even I can do the maths on this one.
You’d have to have been living under a rock to miss this Burberry cape doing the rounds and, whilst I have developed a deep love for it, frankly I’d rather go on an exotic holiday than drop a grand on a what is essentially a giant scarf.
Enter good ol’ M&S and say hello to this beauty. All the makings of the Burbs number – swishy, colour-blocky, capey, autumny… but for £45. Usually I might still be unconvinced to part with almost 50 bucks on a big scarf but I’ve had her since Tuesday and by Sunday I’d worn her 4 times. I can see where this is going and it might be unhealthy… but I am smitten. Obviously I whole heartedly recommend plumping for the M&S poncho and wearing it daily and then also on the flight to your exotic destination. Winning.

Oooh that wrap looks great on you! So cosy for the cooler weather, and lovely with the white jeans! 🙂 It’s nice to find a similar version at a more affordable price too – fashion is fun like that! 🙂

Sometimes I am a little wary of close copies but I feel the markets for these 2 are so different it’s ok… as much as I might love one, I could and would never blow that kinda cash on a scarf!
Amazing wrap! You just can’t beat M&S. I love this look Wendy 🙂
Thankd Daniella, yep, M&S really impressed me with this one (although I have been a secret M&S shopper for years and years… always go in with my mum and leave with something for myself)!x
Woo~! The red cap looks so nice! The cloth are all in fashion!

But I can’t help feeling that Mr K. Has his eye on your lovely clutch bag for a pillow. Snuggly.
Perhaps you’re right Janine… he did have a bed a bit like this when he was a pup but he never slept on it, just ate it and eventually I had to throw it out before he did himself a damage!
I missed this post for some reason so I’m only catching up now and I love this cape! It’s exactly what I’m looking for at the moment – thank you! Off to buy one xx
PS hope you’re well lovely – sorry haven’t commented in an age but I do read every day on the phone! xx
I absolutely need this and it is sold out online. Do you sell items? I am trying to find someone in the UK willing to purchase and mail it to me. I will pay via paypal.
There is a similar one on topshop.com but I prefer this one.
Hi Steph, you could try my friend at http://www.dresssense.com/ – she may be able to help! I’d sell you mine but I just love it too much! Hope you manage to get one.x
Elegant clothes, love it
