Tale of the Two Trench Coats

It was by pure luck that while out thrifting, I found these two very elegant trench coats.  I didn't think that it was possible to find a barely worn U.K. produced Burberrys' trench and a Diane Von Furstenberg trench in the same day; but it appears that lightening can strike twice. I must say, they are hard to part with, but with such high consumer demand, how can we refuse our customers the chance to be their most stylish this season? 

Burberrys' Trench, $250.00 -  Twirl Vintage Co. on Etsy.com

Burberrys' or Burberry you may ask? - Well according to an e-bay guide as well as the Burberry main offices in London, both are authentic labels. The company changed its name from Burberrys' to Burberry in the 90s. A Burberry trench coat is one of the most coveted wardrobe staples in the fashion industry with retail prices starting as high as $1,200.00.

Diane Von Furstenberg Trench, $200.00 - Twirl Vintage Co. on Etsy.com 

Diane Von Furstenberg has been the voice of women's couture since the "wrap dress" 70s and yet with all that girl power; she still retains an air of elegance and old world beauty in the construction of her pieces. This trench is just gorgeous with the belted sleeves, swing coat fullness, and belted waist; what's not to love? Her trench coats hold their value and currently start as high as $500 retail.
