I’ve been in love with trench coats recently – an odd thing to be in love with because, let’s face it, sunny Brisbane isn’t really the hub of trench-coat wearing-weather. But after seeing just about every woman in Japan clad in one (seriously, it wasn’t anywhere close to trench coat weather there either) I’ve finally decided that I also need to find a way to wear one as soon as possible!
