Veering away from our usual frock filled windows, we are focusing this week on outerwear instead. In particular; the Burberry trench.  Ever wonder why they are called ‘trench’ coats? Well, it’s because Burberry (or Aquascutum-the jury is still out on this) developed the coat for use by the British and French soldiers fighting in the trenches during WWI. Now you know! Get ready to fight the elements this fall and dodge those drops in a classic piece that is tried and true.

We’ve been waiting a couple of weeks to do this window for you all. The reason being is that we didn’t have a 3rd item in the right blue to make it work until that Marilyn dress on the right came in. And then, voilà- display complete. Hope you like it as much as we do!

We are happy with how this black and cream window turned out. It’s sweeter than an Oreo, in our opinion. And it’s a real mashup of old and new. Can you tell what’s vintage from contemporary? We hope not, as good fashion should always transcend time. Mix and match new and old this autumn to cut an original look that keeps ’em guessing.
