What Do You Think Of My Ultra Suede Cape Vest
Suede and ultra suede are one of the biggest trends for spring and after seeing some of the fall 2015 shows, its looks like it is carrying straight into the next fall season as well. I have been experimenting using ultra suede (faux suede) for some new jacket pieces. As you know real suede is very nice as well but difficult to work with, just like real leather you have to buy it in pieces not yardage and it ends up being very expensive when you are done making a jacket out of it. Ultra suede on the other hand comes in yardage just like any fabric and still has the look and the feel of suede. It is the perfect kind of suede to use for spring, since it is lighter weight as well.
We have barely had a fall/winter season here in Los Angeles, and this last weekend it was once again ridiculous with temperatures well into the high 80s and it felt like summer. So after a really busy work week, my husband and I decided to head to Santa Monica beach to enjoy a nice Saturday out in the sun and grab dinner somewhere to see the sunset later on.
I decided to wear this tan ultra suede cape vest for the outing which is a one of kind sample that I wanted to get your opinions on. I love hearing from you all every week and this is the best way for me to get product feedback from readers and customers. Originally I was going to wear a long sleeve top under it but it was so hot that I had to go with a tank top instead, of course it could be worn with a long sleeve top underneath for cooler days as well.
My outfit was pretty simple and casual so this cape vest was a fun addition to throw on and make the outfit more exciting. I also added this fabulous necklace that we have just added to our web site and I love it. Its my personal favorite color combination of gold, turquoise and brown and works perfectly with this outfit.
