Meet my new Burberry Pleated Trench Coat

I just ordered this beautiful Burberry Pleated Skirt Trench Coat in black!

Burberry is known for being the inventor of the trench coat — the two are pretty much synonymous with each other.  In fact, dating back to 1901, Thomas Burberry submitted a design for an army officer’s raincoat to the United Kingdom War Office. (Wikipedia: Trench Coat)

I love the design of this coat because it’s sophisticated and the fitted design is quite feminine yet it is conservative enough for work.  Beware though, this trench coat comes with a hefty price.  However, I do believe in buying some quality pieces to add to your wardrobe that will last a long time.  The key is to buy pieces that are not too trendy.  Make sure it’s a classic piece that doesn’t scream a distinctive point in time (think: scrunchies, high tops, colored denim, sports memorabilia — hehe!).  High quality pieces can be cleaned (appropriately) without showing signs of wear.  I tend to invest in outerwear, fancy dresses, handbags, and footwear that I know I will only wear occasionally.

Can’t wait to get this in the mail!
