Part of my ReVogueing quest has recently got me trailing through a collection of fantastic vintage boutiques. Over the Christmas months Peekaboo Vintage, settled on Chiswick High Road and I found this amazing leather trench! I love its 70’s feel, its soft leather, the way it fits into my back , but most of all I love the fur collar – cosy but striking! Even though we are supposed to coming into Spring/Summer 14 now, the weather has definitely kept me in a wintery mood, and the colour of this trench coat has been the perfect way to warm an outfit up! Originally this coat was made by the 60’s brand Opera Montreal. I couldn’t find much out about this brand but saw some great pieces on eBay – check them out.
To stay with the 70’s vibe I dug out my favourite Boohoo platform chelsea boots! Heeled boots have been my saviour this winter and these are fantastic for casual days and party nights! They don’t have these exact ones in stock but these are my picks from this seasons choice:

A must have for every female and gent’s wardrobe is a white, silk shirt. I found this one in my mum’s wardrobe! She hadn’t worn it for years and I really appreciated the detailing on the high neck; the buttons are particularly sweet.
Last, but certainly not least, my jeans; the American Apparel Easy Jean. They haven’t photographed well unfortunately, but these are my all time favourite fit! I have never found buying jeans a pleasurable experience but once I found these, my days of trailing around denim stores were over. They have a fantastic stretch, are high waisted so perfect for tucking shirts into or wearing with a crop top and don’t go baggy on the legs. I have them in two other colours and can’t wait to get more for the summer!!
I hope you love this trench and outfit as much as I do! A great vintage find, combined with a wonderful discovery from my mums wardrobe and a couple of all time favourites with the boots and jeans! If you’re looking for a trench like the one I’m wearing, I found these two when I had a gander on the Peekaboo Vintage Website. The sleeves are fantastic on both! Check here for the black and here for the tan. You can also get a selection of Peekaboo Vintage in Topshop!
