Vintage Burberry: Gisela's Gorgeous Trench

A Burberry trench coat is on my fashion bucket list so naturally I went gaga over this picture of my friend Gisela and begged her to let me showcase it on Shoestring News.

The très chic Gisela (R) with her family in 1972.

Yes, that's right --per the caption she was wearing that coat in 1972! Over 40 years later, the look is still  elegant and in fashion, proof that the classics never go out of style. This high quality garment also lasted Gisela many years. She later passed the coat on to her sister, that lucky duck!

Oh Burberry trench, Burberry trench, some day you will be mine! Until then I shall make do with the London Fog coat I snagged at half price from TJ Maxx. Can't afford Burberry, either? No worries! You too can look just as fab in a shoestring budget-friendly substitute....oh, but one day...

And speaking of dress up daydreams here is a Burberry fashion set I made recently on Polyvore, featuring the big B's recent riff on the classic trench.
