Embellished Trench

I love a good rainy day. We don’t get them often in Los Angeles, so when it does rain it makes everyone go crazy (in a good way!). I, for one, absolutely love the rain. Call me crazy, but rain actually puts me in a good mood! Plus it gives me an excuse to bring out my trench coat which I don’t get to do often.

Trench coats are a classic staple piece. They are the perfect transition coats for spring and fall. I will admit that I have never owned many trench coats, but after visiting Ireland for the first time in 2013 and stocking up on some over there, I’ve adapted them into my style at home in Los Angeles, especially when the weather turns.

The tall boots with the coat elongates the look of my legs, plus is a way to welcome the cooler weather. In the spring, however, I like to pair a trench coat is with a sweater and a skirt with some flirty heels.

Why? It’s embellished with beautiful birds on the shoulder! I love when a sophisticated staple embraces a unique feel as it takes it to another level. I love how REDValentino can take a classic piece and add a standout twist to it (another example is the REDValentino floral collar I wore in this post). I cannot wait to wear this coat through the fall and into the new year. It may be winter, but there’s a little hint of spring with those beautiful birds.

    Hi Alyssa! First I want to say that I’m in love with your trench coat! I’ve always loved this kind of coat but unfortunatley I can’t put it on often because here in Italy the appropriate weather for this kind of coat is short.
    I wanted to ask you if you’re gonna publish something about clothes for Chistmas, because I’d love to read what you suggest! x
