The (T)rench Connection

There are clothes …and then there are classics. One of them is definitely trench coat. I think every one of us owns some variation of the trench coat for those rainy Spring  or Autumn days. I while ago I got my hands on this wonderful second-hand Burberry trench coat which I consider my prized possession.

One of my favorite movie scenes is the one from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” when Audrey Hepburn (or Holly Golightly) is trying to catch her love interest Paul dressed in her trench coat.

Every time I put my trench coat on I feel like a part of an old school movie, and who doesn’t love to feel like that, if only for a couple of hours?

She’s a Lady

“Being female is a matter of birth, being a woman is a matter of age, but being a lady is a matter of choice.”  

I often have conversations with some of my friends about the meaning of a true lady and a true gentleman. Is that just something archaic that belongs to the past, or is it possible to maintain ladylike qualities in the modern times?

Times change, and people change, and these are surely not innocent times. But I can’t help myself and think how today we feel strange when someone around us is not vulgar, when he or she is polite and well-mannered.

Are ladies and gentlemen an extinct species? I truly hope they are not – it would be a sad world to live in!
