    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,
