Metallics. I guess that’s what we’ll be hearing from the fashion people. Lots and lots of metallics.

But this is why you have to be rich for this. Because these coats, they are gorgeous. And they go away after 3 months or less. You remember that awesome trench coat from a couple of seasons ago with the leather sleeves? Click here for a refresher. SUPER expensive. An investment you hope will pay you back. But it’s almost TOO memorable, you know? If you’d bought that back then, you wouldn’t be wearing it now. That’s probably $3,000 just sitting around knowing that it’s past its time. And that’s how it is with most of the coats on this particular runway. And why they’re only for them, those who can afford to put something away after a few wears over a few weeks.

Speaking of Burberry trench coats though, I’ve had my eye on this one for a few months. I think I want it for my birthday.
