It’s a pretty exciting day for a blogger when a brand approaches you with an offer of having a piece from their collection named after you – which is exactly what happened when New York clothing brand Coop and Hen got in touch with me! I was given the opportunity to choose a piece from their collection that I felt most represented my style, and to say I was flattered was the understatement of the year.
Regular readers may know that I’ve worn a trench coat more than a few times this season already – see me in trench action at London Fashion Week, going short with a vintage scarf, and with blue leopard print and orange, to name just a few. So when I saw the Coop and Hen trench coat, which has a clever jacket upper half that comes off to reveal a dress-style sleeveless coat underneath – I knew that it was the one for me. So, ladies and gents, I present to you the…
It’s definitely my kind of piece, and I love how it’s practically a whole outfit in a coat. It’s by far the most unique trench coat I’ve ever seen, and even as a dress by itself it’s got that great safari vibe going on. So in my little sartorial fantasy of actually owning one, I’ve put together some affordable pieces that I think would work wonderfully with the trench. A black turtleneck sweater, patterned tights and boots, a smooth leather tote bag and – of course – a hat (a fabulous deep red fedora).
So I think having had a piece of clothing named after my blog is a big fat tick on my “Blogger Bucket List”, don’t you think… a feature in a top glossy would be another! What about you – what would be the next thing you’d love to check off on your Blogger Bucket List? I’m dying to know!
