The Maje orange cape dress – and an alternative from Cos

Just to say thank you to everyone who left comments yesterday regarding the wedge trainer debate.  I love reading them all. There’s nothing like clothes, shoes, bags and jewellery to bring out our strongest feelings!  Whether it’s intense like or dislike for a piece, extreme disappointment at not being to get hold of something we have fallen in love with, elation at securing it – or just that heart skipping moment when whatever we have been searching for comes into view – it’s instinctive and to me, fascinating.

On another note, this orange drape dress by the French brand Maje has been seen out and about a lot recently, on celebreties such as Heidi Range (below), Lisa Snowdon, Gizzi Erskine and Jools Oliver.

A little different to your average short dress, the cape element adds some interest and the vibrant orange colour makes a change from black.  Although having said that, I am bringing you a black alternative!


This belted side drape dress is from Cos and costs 69 Euros.  A great alternative to the dress above, some may feel less conspicuous in black than bright orange, and it would certainly be very versatile.

It may be worn with, or without the belt and may well be the only LBD you ever need. Of course, if you did fancy it in a brighter colour, it also comes in a bright green/yellow which could be perfect for a late summer wedding, paired with some of next season’s shoes which are now hitting the stores – just to get you on your way.

Hope you like!
