I've had this coat for ages. I go through phases of wearing it and not wearing it, but I've yet to go through a phase where I feel that I need to replace it. There's something to be said for Burberry durability.

How are your holidays going? I'm currently in New Mexico, where reality television has been replaced by the antics and strange interactions of a flock of chickens, three semi-feral cats, and a spunky Boston Terrier. I swear species cross-communicate, à la Charlotte's Web. Needless to say, I can assure you I will have lots of photos to share after this trip.

Great coat, I love the color! And I agree--my vintage Burberry coat just doesn't age.

I love duffle coats and toggles. Still hanging on to one from 3 years ago because I cannot find a replica. Love the navy!

I love your reference to paddington bear. This is so his coat. I love it. It looks so warm. It needs to be paired with something ultra girly now.

very cute and it does remind me (in a good way) of Paddington - one of my fav books! P.S. When you leave comments now and i click on the high lighted "E" for your name it doesn't come up w/your blog info/link on your "about page" wasn't sure if you knew this....

Eli said...

I have every type of coat except a toggle one, this one is so cute and comfy looking!

Jan said...

Aw, I had images of the Paddington bear and half expected a mustard hat to make an appearance in a shot or two (thank goodness you have more fashion sense than me!)

I'm loving your coat. Burberry has such a great reputation for their coats and trench jackets. I would love to own one. Also I'm excited to your photos from New Mexico. I hear it's so beautiful.

Everytime I see a coat with toggle buttons I can't help but think but Paddington Bear. Loved those books. Speaking of love...you're loafers are amazing. Who knew Dr. Marten had it in him?
