This cape.
 
When I saw it on another Blogger, I was ridiculously obsessed. Too bad for me, because it was sold out online and in every H&M that I called (all over town, might I add).  I told myself I was not allowed to obsess over it anymore, it just wasn’t meant to be. That all changed the moment I passed by an H&M that I apparently hadn’t called, and a mannequin in an XS was staring right back at me. Needless to say, I begged and pleaded with the store manager to remove it from the window, and he agreed to do it and sell it to me the next day.
 
Christmas miracle? 😉
