If there is one thing I’m good at, it’s finding deals! It’s rare that I ever buy anything for full price and let me tell you that I would have gladly paid in full for this J.Crew Trench [buuuut I didn’t because aren’t things better when they’re
practically free?]. This is THE Italian cashmere iconic trench and the quality is top notch. I always say how I get all my coats from this brand – it’s because they know what they’re doing.
This coat features functional and adjustable cuff / belt buckles, tortoise buttons, back and shoulder flanges, a snap neck clasp, and round collar. My favorite are the deep pockets, because my hands get really cold and I use these features often. I had J.Crew search the entire country for a size 00 [I was concerned the sleeves were going to be too long, but in hindsight they were just right because they stop 1.5 inches below my wrist]. I LOVE the caramel color of this trench and in some photos it may even have a “heather” look. The best part is it’s a classic piece that I’ve been looking for and it will never go out of style!
Measurements: Runs true to size. Length [shoulder to knees] – 36″ / Sleeves [shoulder to wrist] – 23″ / Shoulders – 14″ / Cuffs – 9″ / Chest: – 33″ / Waist – 31″ / Hips – 35″ / Belt – 60″
I decided to add a little femininity with the ruffles and bow, which complimented the trench with the white contrast [style tip: I wore a white tank under since the blouse was thin and I tucked the blouse only in the front, leaving the back flowy]. The only accessory I wore were my pearl earrings. Pearls are always a classic timeless item that can dress up any outfit.
Finishing off the look are these beautiful pair of pumps from one of my favorite designers – Vince Camuto [More options HERE]. From the moment I put these on, I knew they belonged on my feet. They have a pointy toe with four inch heels, and an asymmetrical velcro strap [it ads the perfect flare to a classic outfit].
So far, this is my favorite look of 2017. The best thing about it is that I didn’t buy one piece at full price. Boom. Now go get your sale on!
