  1. If you have any doubts about this piece go to the the zone report and there us a video of the editors styling it and it looks amazing.

  2. Liz, love that picture of you with the cape! I wasn’t sure about it till I saw it on you! I’m glad that they decided to send it to you since I’m sure I’m not the only one loving it more after your picture! I did like the idea of another color combination (grey and tan) but black and white are also in style. Thanks for the picture!❤️

  3. Ha! Nice, I bought a black and white zig zag striped cape back in summer of 2015 in Scotland, I was that cold I needed another layer. Who knew I’d still be stylin’ a year on! ?

  4. Will there be other colors from their fall line especially the gray and tan?

    • I hope so but I think this may be it. ?

      • That’s too bad. I like black and white, but I was really expecting to see some fall colors – something similar to her chic camel-colored collar cape or Burberry’s wool & cashmere. Of course nothing as expensive as those but at least something that would shout out fall. I’m not even getting a whisper of fall from the black and white! LOL

  5. My friend that knows I sub to BOS, just texted me laughing about this cape and how it is so not my style. This is the first hero item that’s not for me. Hoping for a good winter spoiler to bring me back in.
    I swear, every spoiler I love, everyone else on this forum hates and vice versa.

    • I agree, this is not for me, one more for the Christmas BOS, if not I’m gonna cancel

  6. Liz – I love your tote! What brand is it?

    • Erica Anenberg – I bought it a few years ago on sale at Hautelook!

      • It’s gorgeous! What a great find!!!!

  7. Love this. Rachel Zoe has done it again. Most of my wardrobe is black and white so this will work with everything I own!!

  8. I’m torn about the cape. I’ve never owned a cape. I’ll try it on with black skinny jeans or leggings with black boots. Hope the other stuff is awesome.

  9. I love that but at 5ft tall I’m afraid I’d look ridiculous in it

    • Im short and capes look great on me ! I am not sure about these colors though. Me and white do not get along well.

    • I am 5 ft tall as well. I am going to pass as this will not work since I am very petite!

  10. Love this so much!! I would’ve loved to use it on my cruise in a few weeks … but unfortunately I don’t think it’ll arrive in time.

    I also love that it’s made in the USA.

    It looks awesome on you, Liz!

    • I’m cruising out of Galveston in a few weeks too! ,

    • Thank you!! 🙂

  11. Well…. As I have a shawl almost identical to that that I got at Target a few years ago I will have to say that is completely unexciting for me. And the price tag they are putting on such a basic piece is beyond me. Fall is a time of such opportunity and this is just disappointing to me. But Liz you look great in it. I am glad they sent it to you for free as I paid $19.99, lol.

  12. I am going to dye mine with gray dye. I will get more use out of it. Is it soft?

    • Hopefully the color choice will be on the cape!

  13. Liz, what are the washing instructions for this? Thanks! You look lovely in it!

    • Dry Clean Only. And, thank you! 🙂

  14. Ooh, I like it! My office is cold even in the summer and this will be perfect to have on hand.

    Liz, you look fab!

  15. I really appreciate this site and the comments! I wouldn’t have known about this if it wasn’t for Liz’s post, I wouldn’t have thought about the Dalmatian potential if I hadn’t read the comments and am glad to have done so in advance of possibly owning it, but I definitely love it anyway! This would be a first Box of Style for me, so I can use the MSA coupon! Better and better!

  16. LOVE it! Very trendy and so glad it’s not some boring wallet. I joined RZ when it first began for this exact type of stylist items.

  17. I’m going to stay subscribed, but I’m not sure about the color combination working for me. I take a few long haul flights each year and if nothing else, I will use this as a wrap on the plane. I will say that Rachel Zoe and her team are always way ahead of the trend, and I won’t be surprised if I see things similar items in the fall magazines.

  18. I’ll be the first person to complain about the wool! 😛 Doesn’t seem to matter how little of it there is, I find it itchy and annoying! I’ll enjoy the vicarious spoilers, but this box won’t be for me.

  19. I LOVE this spoiler!!! RZ NAILED it!!! I can’t wait to wear this!

  20. Man oh man an I ever torn! I love the black and white but I live in Florida and it won’t cool off enough for a cape until November/December. And even then, I tend to go without outerwear (I like the cold – don’t ask me what I’m doing in Florida.)

    Hmmmmm…. Maybe a second spoiler will come out that will push me into a yes or no.

    • My thoughts exactly fellow Florida girl! Think I’ll skip this one.

  21. It’s not for me but my mom would love it. I’ll wait for a couple of more spoilers to come out and if they’re good, I might get the box and gift her the whole thing for Christmas. Easy peasy!

  22. I actually cancelled my subscription yesterday. I’m on the fence about this one. I do love the pic where it’s styled with the skirt, and I like it on Liz, but I have several similar items in my closet from last fall. I also just spent quite a bit at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale the past few weeks. We shall see what spoiler #2 is, but I think I’ll sit this one out.

    It’s pretty, but I can live without it.

  23. It’s so hot here in Florida right now, makes this a total turn-off…?

  24. Perfect! This will work perfectly with my travel wardrobe and better yet it’ll come before we leave on our next cruise ?

  25. Interesting item! I don’t love it or hate it but I’m not sure it’s really “on trend”. Old Navy was selling these cape/scarves last winter (plaid not color block) and Old Navy is pretty much the place where trends go to die. I kind of expect something more fashionable from RZ. Also, I don’t think that you can technically call a “55% Viscose,38% Cotton,5% Wool, 2% Spandex” knit a “wool blend” since the wool almost seems an afterthought. This fiber content is also very Old Navy (hopefully the pilling isn’t). I do love that it’s Made in the USA so I am going to give it a try.

    • Thanks, meg,
      I really appreciate your style comments, and perspective on Old Navy, and agree about content tags. If you called this Wool Blend in a store, there would be some ‘splaining to do.

    • I tend to agree. I feel like my closet has become overloaded with capes, ponchos, etc. over the last 2 or so years and I’m kind of over it already. I must say I really do like this particular one though so I may get it anyway, but I feel this would have been much more cutting edge and on trend if it had been included in the Fall 2014 box instead of the Fall 2016 box. At this point, it seems like many designers are already phasing out this drapy outerwear in their upcoming winter lines. But I do love the simplicity of this one. So thumbs up for that.

  26. Love it!

  27. Liz, you look FANTASTIC!!!!

    • Thanks, Krista!! 🙂

      • I was quickly looking through this post and didn’t know that’s you in the last pic until I read Krista’s comment. I thought it was another model. You are so beautiful and not only physically.

        • ❤️

  28. I would have loved this if it had been all black…but I don’t like the black/white combo. So that saved me $100 🙂

  29. FINALLY! I’ve been waiting for this spoiler! I’m surprised I didn’t get an email. Sadly, I don’t think this is for me. I really need another Rachel Zoe box though because I organized my closet using the black boxes and I’m one short!

    • That’s a genius idea! I save them for packing holiday gifts. I wish I could send you one, but I imagine it wouldn’t be cost effective. And at the post office: “Ma’am, what are you shopping?” Nothing. It’s an empty box. Haha!

      • Haha, thanks for the thought 🙂 I don’t think it’s cost effective to spend $100 for the box either, so I’ll hold out for winter 🙂 I also have Luxor Box boxes, but they’re smaller and the light blue and white of those just doesn’t cut it!

        • The Oui Please boxes are awesome too. I absolutely consider the value to me of the actual boxes when I contemplate subscribing to these so I totally get it!

  30. Love it!!!

  31. Liz – Is this made in the USA? It looks like most of the stuff on her site are made in the USA and I have been trying to buy more made local items so this would be an extra win.

    • Just checked the tag – Made in the USA! 🙂

      • THANKS!

  32. It’s perfect!

    The jeans on the model, however :/

    • Lmao! I couldn’t even see anything but those jeans! If that is in this season I guess I will be out of style!

    • laughing ….
      My first thought after seeing the pics (not Liz’s though) was – Are Mom jeans making a comeback?

    • Yes, hello 1970! Thank goodness we’re not getting the jeans. Lol

  33. Black and white – elegant – a color scheme that always elevates an outfit:)

  34. I love it! I love that you can put the black or white side forward. It is so different from anything I have or have seen. Great idea as a scarf or a little hat/scarf combo if the wind picks up. Super great for fall. Love the tan skirt idea so it will look good with my tan boots. I see solid color shirt, skinny jeans and boots. done!

  35. im sort of glad I don’t like it since I don’t need to spend the money.

  36. I love it! That is SO what I wear!!

  37. Very cute!

    And you look great Liz!

    • Thanks, Randi! 🙂

  38. Awww I’m not sure how I feel about this, I love the idea of a cape but just not loving that colour scheme. Might be looking at a cancel… ??

  39. I like thist a lot, but I went a little crazy buying wraps last year and still have a few I never even wore. But fall boxes are typically really good all the way around, so I might still get this. I think I need another spoiler before I decide for sure.

  40. I am really wishing this was a solid color. I’m not sure what I’ll think though so I’ll wait until I get my hands on it. Maybe paired with all black? Black leggings and top? Little black dress? I’m hoping I like it, if not, up for swap!

  41. THIS IS EVERYTHING!!!! My style to a T!

  42. Liz- it looks so cute on you! You’re ready for fall.
    Funny that people are mentioning 101 Dalmations… The first thing I thought of was the House of Black and White from Game of Thrones 🙂

    • Thanks! 🙂 And even though it is only August 1st, I am so ready for fall!

    • Those of us saying 101 Dalmatians either have kids or are dating ourselves, or both, lol.

    • Hahaha I was so hoping I wasn’t the only person who thought of Cruella DeVille with this color scheme!! Unfortunate with the white since it looks like it would serve to catch all my coffee spills when wearing…I’m not biting for this box.

  43. This is the first time a hero item has appealed to me. I know this is technically one-size-fits-all, but is it REALLY one-size-fits-all (asks the quite plus-sized woman)?

    • The measurements are listed there – honestly I think it’s pretty close. I’m the same boat as you.

      I am on the fence. I hate coats and I live in Texas so typically I can get away with a cape (as opposed to a proper coat) most of the winter, and sometimes all winter. BUT I do poorly with the color white because I am a messy Bessy. And I have a cape I like, though I could use a backup 🙂 Torn!

  44. Love it! Can’t wait!

  45. I wouldn’t purchase this scarf for myself (would have preferred black and grey, or a print, as white is too stark on my already pale skin), but the styling with the cognac skirt is keeping me interested. Hopefully they feature more styling options to showcase it’s versatility!

  46. I think it’s great! Love it.

  47. I’m a little disappointed. It’s not my typical style, but I guess I’ll have to see it in person before I decide for sure.

  48. Looks great! A couple questions though…does it have sleeves or is it just a wrap and what is the fiber content? Sometimes “wool blends” pill like crazy. Thanks!

    • It does not have sleeves, so it’s easy to style as a scarf, too.

      Material content:

      55% Viscose
      38% Cotton
      5% Wool
      2% Spandex

      Dry Clean Only.

      Hope that helps! 🙂

  49. Maybe it’s just me but I’m thinking 101 Dalmatians. I’m sure it’s a lovely cape but the color scheme doesn’t appeal to me at all.

    • I was thinking that too!

    • Yep; spot on! (see what i did there)

    • I had the same thoughts 😉

    • I’m with you on not loving the color scheme. If it were more of an earth tone or a bold pattern in a muted color scheme, I would be all over it, but I already have enough black and white items to carry me through. Oh well, money saved!

    • Haha, that’s exactly what came to my mind too! I was thinking about subscribing, but this is definitely not for me, and the value may make it harder to swap. Maybe Winter box will be more fitting for me.

  50. I adore Donnie Charm – such a wonderful company and this cape is beautiful. Love, love this hero item. May order more than 1 box!

    • Yay! It would definitely make a fab gift, too! 🙂
