Like a moth to a flame...

It took quite a while... and a number of international phone calls to obtain this Alexander McQueen moth print cape but at least it shows persistence pays off people!  Alexander McQueen's ethereal cape adds instant interest to an otherwise simple outfit with its kaleidoscopic print and floaty movement.  Finding the beauty in something that would otherwise be considered quite dark or ugly is synonymous with the charm of McQueen.  Who knew moths could be so pretty?  If this outfit was a film it would be lightweight cape, leggings, Wang boots action... and it's a wrap ;)
