This rather classic style trench has been a part of my wardrobe for many years. Yes, the style is classic as a trench should be but this one is a soft, buttery leather hence the twist.I love the oatmeal colour of the leather and the finishing details including the large buttons. The coat was made and designed in New Zealand by the late Victoria Moore, a charming and very talented lady that I had the pleasure of meeting many years ago.
I know classic , yet alone beige, gets a bad rap for being boring but sometimes the classic road is one I like to venture on and just make it my own .
My own touches included these yellow spot and black gloves from Violet Priscilla (isn’t that a wonderful name for a glove company) and my bejewelled hat from Helen Kaminsky .
On another note please excuse my slightly battered looking nose , I had some sun damage attended to
after a visit to a skin specialist last week. The result of too much time in my younger years spent in the harsh Aussie sun. Everything was fine and I will be back to normal in a couple of weeks.
