The Classic Trench

And the not so classic trench... I love them all. After a week of being made jealous by (practically) every T.V. Character I watch, I really need one.

First it was Addison on Private Practice, who had on a beige satin trench. Beautiful coat, and I must admit, I loved her whole outfit that episode, with the floral sheath dress, the necklace with two large pearls, and gold bangle. I don't remember what shoes she was wearing, but I'm sure they would have been perfect for dinner in an expensive restaurant, and completely impractical for delivering a baby.

So, after a bit of searching, I found this coat at Macy's by Nine West. It was on sale for $61 yesterday, but now it's gone up to $82!! This is still a discount though, the original price is $164.

I do like the moss color (also comes in black), but I'm not crazy about 3/4 sleeves on outerwear.

My other finds include these two gray satin coats on ebay - one by Guess and the other Bebe. They are both currently under $40. I like the Bebe one because it is double breasted, but I like the Guess one because it has shoulder flaps.

On Castle, detective Beckett had a great trench coat this past week. It was khaki, with an unusual double collar, about a million belt loops, and a skirt with enough of a flare to be feminine.

This find on ebay isn't nearly as cute, but it has its merits - as does this vintage military style coat. I like the asymmetrical collar the best of all.

Lastly, I found this bright green trench with white piping that makes the whole coat pop (as if bright green wasn't enough on it's own). I love it, and even though the retail at Macys for this coat by Tommy Hillfiger is $91, I found one on ebay that is presently under $20!
