When dreams come true

The other day I mentioned how I'd got something really exciting for my wardrobe, have you guessed what it is yet? Well to say WELL DONE for doing such a good job on my masters, my Mum bought me a VINTAGE BURBERRY TRENCH COAT from our local second hand designer store. I have ALWAYS wanted a Burberry trench for as long as I can remember, not only are they completely chic but one of the few items that will last forever and never go out of fashion. Along with a Chanel 2.55 and a pair of Louboutins (still waiting for these to grace my wardrobe) a Burberry trench is a key item in any fashionista's wardrobe and I am completely thrilled I finally own one =) I'm not 100% sure what year mine is from but I think it might be around the 80s, it is super long so will keep me super warm in the winter months and of course the beige colour will go with absolutely anything.

I decided that the first time I wore the trench it would have to be paired with an equally chic outfit and what doesn't say chic more than Breton stripes and high waisted trousers.

Stripe top from H&M
High waisted harems and
purple ankle boots from Topshop

I love this coat so bloody much and before you ask it was a fraction of the cost of a new one! I think I'll be wearing it an awful lot this winter... and for the rest of my life I imagine.

Do you guys have anything classic items of clothing you know will never grow old like designer hand bags or coats? Or do you prefer to buy into new trend every season? I like to do both in all honesty, new clothes every season is a lot of fun but it's also nice to have stuff that will last a life time and even be passed on to your kids...

1 week until I go travelling, exciting x


  1. I LOVE IT!

  3. Accessories add color, style and class to an outfit, and create a certain look, but they may also have practical functions.
