The chilly weather in Sydney yesterday reminded me of a shopping regret from my trip to Hong Kong earlier this year. I tried on a light grey short trench at Sogo. I can't remember the brand, I think it was a Japanese brand. I liked it but I didn't buy it on the day, and I never had the time to go back there again.
This triggered me to do some online searching for a short trench.
The benchmark is of course Burberry (Short cotton-twill trench coat, £650, Net-a-porter)
Unfortunately it is totally outside of my price range.
Shopstyle led me to this lovely Miu Miu short trench (on sale, €319, My Theresa)
I really like the feminine feel of the trench. I'd like to be able to pair it with a dress on a cool night. Very tempted - but the €79 postage is a bit of a deterrent.
For a budget option there's always Zara (Twill double breasted trench, $HK699).
I already have a Zara full length trench which I'm happy with, and I can ask my sister to buy one for me.
Umm, decisions decisions ...
