This season I will mostly be rocking…..

The Trench Coat.

I have found mine & its fabulous!
It’s vintage Nordstrom from Westland and it fits like a dream. I wore it today for the first time. It looks best with the top two buttons undone. There are pleats down the back from the yoke to the waist then down through the full skirt at the back and the front and there’s a cute button on tab across the waist at the back (the ties only come through from the side seams) It has too many cute girly features, it totally steps aside from the unisex Spy coats that are normally associated with Trench Coats, and looking around this seems to be a major trend this season.

Even Burberry are girlifying their classic trench, taking it shorter and tighter in a softer shimmery fabric. Love the huge hook and eye on the exaggerated collar stand.

Jean Paul Gaultier for Target is releasing this nautical mix trench on March 7th. And at only $59.99 I guarantee it will be sold out in the first half an hour!


At Celine they have mixed it up totally, ripping off sleeves and moving the double breasted buttons across further turning it into a safari dress of sorts.

For vintage takes on feminine trenchcoats try:
$65 from Secret Lake has pretty poofy shoulders & cuffs, two tone lapels and a semi full skirt.

$54 from The Pudding Store Vintage is cut for a smaller frame.

$52 from The Pigeon Chest in leather adds another edge.

$32 from Gina Michele Vintage goes for a pop of colour.
