I am by no means a style blogger, but I do want to say how much I appreciate a good trench coat. The first month after I moved into the city (about 3 years ago), I decided I was going to invest in a Burberry trench. Because every time I bought a not-Burberry trench, I wore it for a season and got sick of it or it lost its shape or whatever. So why not get THE classic that will last me years and years. I went to the flagship store on 57th Street and (after multiple visits and some alterations) came home with a tan timeless mid-length trench. The sales lady warned me that I would want a black one - she said, "Everyone always comes back for the black." Well, lo and behold, guess where I found myself again earlier this month when the weather started turning cool... Now I'm wondering if she just said that to plant the idea in my head!
The thing is, my tan trench gets SO DIRTY so quickly because hell, I live in a dirty city and I walk a lot. And I take public transportation. And cleaning that thing ain't cheap. So at least the black trench doesn't show dirt and grime. And I feel instantly put-together with a well-fitting trench. Even if I'm just wearing jeans and a tee (which is the case 99% of the time).
