When opportunity knocks...


I know I've mentioned The Lake and Stars' Opportunity Trench before, but I just had to bring it up again because we received a sample of the short version today, and it's so chic! Long enough to cover your derriere, but short enough to wear on a bike, this cut is perfect for spring and will transition easily into the fall. It's beautifully tailored, and consequentially very slimming, particularly in Navy. The sleeves are nice and long, and they also feature that clever button and strap for secure rolling. The lapels are just the right size to frame your neck and give you that 'large and in charge' feel, without looking like you borrowed your father's coat. Check it out:



Granted, their model is dead sexy (doesn't she look like she could be Julianna Margulies' hotter younger sister?) so it's a bit unfair to imply that we'll all look this great, but stop by and try it on if you don't believe me. I've already bought two coats this year, so I certainly don't need another, but I'm sold on this one. We're taking Special Orders on both the short and long Opportunity trench for our May delivery, so act fast if you don't want to miss out!
