((Topshop trench; Express turtleneck; LOFT skirt; Two Lips boots; Sally Hansen Black Out & Hard Candy Break Up nailpolish))
I have long been in search of the perfect spring trench coat, which, in this city, is practically a wardrobe mandate. (Yesterday I counted 15 on 23rd Street alone.) After poring over all accessible options, my quest revealed just how many varieties there are to choose from at a range of price points–dark vs. light khaki, tied vs. buckled belt, pointed vs. rounded collar, fitted vs. loose fit, thigh vs. knee length…and the list goes on. Basically, you can construct your dream trench and rest assured that the end result will still be a classic piece you can wear for years. I was attracted to this Topshop trench because of the plethora of buttons, waterproof fabric, and skirted tailoring. Just make sure you do all the research before making the investment!
