Daily: I'm No Superhero

My favorite superhero is Batman. Some argue that he isn’t a superhero because he’s just a regular guy with lots of cool toys … like a freaking awesome car. However, I beg to differ. I mean, have you seen Christian Bale in the latest Batman movies? How can you not be a believe Batman is a superhero after watching them? Here’s the breakdown:

Cape: TJ Maxx
Sweater: Salvation Army
Jeans: Garage sale (H&M)
Boots: Elder Beerman
Necklace: Elder Beerman
Rings: Ann Taylor LOFT/Banana Republic

I recently purchased a capelet through an online retailer, but when I got it, it was stained and ripped in a few places. Needless to say, when I found this cape at TJ Maxx, I was ecstatic. It’s soft. It’s not ripped and stained. It was also half the price of the one from the online retailer. It’s lightweight, which means I can wear sweaters underneath it without having to worry about getting too warm (which is what usually happens when I wear a sweater and outerwear in the fall). Am I a superhero in this cape? No. Do I feel like a superhero when I wear it? In some ways, yes. And that’s okay with me.
