Classic Trench With A Twist


 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.

  2. There's nothing boring about soft leather, or classic trench. My dreamcoat! Except that beige is definitely not my colour... but it looks divine on you.

  8. You look brilliant in your classy trench coat with whimsical details like your hat! Everything gets a bad rep somewhere at some point. Beige for being boring, bright colors for being loud and prints for being distasteful. I love variety, I'd say let's just let it all be. :) <3

    1. Thanks so much Claire for your kind comments. The backdrops are part of a flood levy , so good of the local council to add some colour.

  10. Ah, more leather... this trench coat certainly looks "buttery" - what an asset to your wardrobe, Jill. And beige, you can add any colour or pattern to it - as you do, inventing your individual, new outfits every time. I love your boots! Just wondering if you'll be in the next Bond film... (Pleased to hear the results of your skin surgery are good). xx
