    Perfect timing for this post. I purchased a Zara trench, which was quite beautiful and fit surprisingly well… However, the lining absolutely shredded over a few months of pretty standard wear. I had it repaired on the cheap (they sewed the tears, rather than sew an entirely new lining) but now the entire coat pulls in a funny way when I wear it. Haven’t purchased much form Zara since. Loving the ‘draping’ trench look this Fall but looking for something more a long these lines that will carry me between seasons.

    Hope you’re feeling better! Question: How do you feel about the cape trend?

    Love the Burberry trench. Boy, they are expensive, but they really last and last. I have one that is going into its 10th year, and I wear it constantly. I haven’t had to so much as clip a loose thread. I’m considering investing in one of the red ones they just released this fall.

    I’d love recommendations for a trench coat in a color other than khaki. (It’s just not me.) What color is best for a professional work environment? Is black acceptable?

      I think black is good. A dark navy is also nice. Even a burgundy could be fun.
