    LOVE ALL THE TRENCH COATS! THANKS FOR THE AFFORDABLE LINKS, TOO. I’M LIKING THE “VOLUME BACK” STYLE. HOPE YOU ARE FEELING BETTER, ALTHOUGH STILL LOOKING BEAUTIFUL.

    So funny. Just today, after seeing so many girls in their macs, I was thinking: hmm, they all just look a bit like sexy spies. They just weren’t doing it right. Somehow, you’ve nailed it! Love the red tight look especially.

    FYI Peeps… You don’t need to spend $1,000 to get this look. Right now Banana Republic has a beautiful trench for $200…and it comes in tall!

    Good morning Maegan,

    LOVE the coat! It’s so elegant and classy!! The pics are great– I love the third one down and the last one! You should be here in Paris – you’d fit in beautifully!

    Take care,
    Leesa
