Anthropologie Eyelet Trench

A couple weeks ago, I stumbled upon an eyelet trench in my local Anthropologie store.  It was on sale for $89.95 (orig. $168) at that time.  I wasn’t on the market for a new trench, but I decided to try it on because there was something intriguing about an eyelet trench.

The coat’s white embroidered eyelet pops over a chambray lining.  Other details like the fit-and-flare silhouette and subtle tier at the bottom take this coat to serious style heights.  I’m glad I tried it on and got to appreciate the full beauty of the coat because the online pictures don’t do it justice.

Believe it or not, though, I left the store without the coat the first time because there were so many in stock (and it didn’t appear to be popular), so I expected the price to fall more. That turned out to be a good move because a couple of weeks later, the coat was marked down further to $49.95.

I’m wearing a size 6.  I first tried a size 4, but the sleeves were too tight.

Belt is reversible.  One side has the white eyelet cutout over chambray and the other
a chambray eyelet cutout over white.

The coat also features a removable ‘belt’ detail around the neck.  On a symbolic level,
wearing a belt around the neck might be odd, but the contrast it adds is pretty.

      Thanks, Sandie! And, I welcome all your hair questions.

      This hairdo is a twist-out. It was set over night after being spritzed with water and moisturized with Darcy's Botanicals Coconut Lemongrass Transitioning Creme. I twisted the hair the way I wanted it to fall and clipped the front pieces down (to keep the twists elongated) before wrapping my hair with a satin scarf before bed. To maintain definition and elongation, I have to retwist every night.

      I have a few hair posts. You can see them all here:
