best buy of 2013

By Marlene | Published: 31. December 2013


I can’t believe that 2013 is almost over. Wasn’t it just January? As much as I look forward to 2014, and before we all put on our party dresses, I thought I’d toast my favourite buy of the past year. Which isn’t terribly deep, but I’m in a champagne kind of mood. It’s a trenchcoat from A.P.C. And here’s why it’s a favourite: I thought about it for months. Should I? Shouldn’t I? Is it worth the money? I let the love build. I imagined myself wearing it and I could picture it being a companion for many years. When I finally decided to hand over my credit card, it was with the certainty that the trench would be by my side for a very long time. An elegant, versatile, 12-months-a-year classic.

How mature! Turns out that I grew up a little bit more in 2013.

Have a fabulous end of this year and start of the new one. Cheers!

    Always a classic! Coats and bags have always proven to be my best wardrobe investment.
