In anticipation of April showers...


I am beginning to realize that I need a decent trench coat. I have a long Macintosh, a typical mom coat. I think I need something a little stylish/sophisticated.

Trench coats are such a classic. In my spy theme fantasy it is ALWAYS a camel colored trench. And although I have seen colored trench coats that I really like, I am quite sure I will be buying a creme or camel colored one.

So, here are two lovely choices. One is a J.Crew trench, ( $298) and the other is Burberry ($1,200.) Can you guess which one is Burberry and which is J. Crew? And... which would you choose?

You can't go wrong with a trench - camel is super classic! I am guessing the bottom one is Burberry - but I love the top one the most and it's great the way it has been styled in the photo!

I think the beige coat is the J Crew... anyway I would pick IT. The white coat can pick up stains and it is a bit too fussy for me... xo

LOVE the first one! I believe I saw that on another blog and it's J Crew.
Happy Birthday... ENJOY your day!

I love the top one with the camel color. I can't imagine spending that much on a trench coat! Am I being cheap or practical?

I love both of these - I'm a trench fan! I THINK the top is the burberry; I have a burberry that looks the same at the top. But who knows? Hard to go wrong with JCrew and the price is so much more palatable.

It's been POURING here in the LA area and I wish I had my old trenchcoat (I left it at my parents' place; it's a vintage Burberry...)

I like trench coats they seemm to always be in fashion. Hmmm....
I'm guessing the bottom one is Burberry because of the crispness of the photo. The top photo a little relax, but my way of thinking off the photos could be totally wrong.
Can't wait to hear how you celebrated your day! xoxo

I like the second one, it's just classy and will never go out of style. Good classic color.

We cheated in a way because we recognized the Crew layout format! Sadly, our fave is the lighter one. We just like that color better, for some unknown reason.
