Nothing better than a great trench. I love the way both of these woman styled them, with a few burst of color and some killer shoes. And the way you shot them both from behind is sublime!

They're both texting. Looking gorgeous though! When I was in London I picked up a vintage Burberry trench. The woman selling it to me said "Ohh, you look better than Kate Moss." So I bought it. Smart lady! haha...

Nice photos.
I love the shoes of the second pic!


Blogger Haute Muslimah said ... (9:48 AM) : 

The first is so classic, and the second can almost double as a dress or shirtdress.


Anonymous CAROLA CORUJA said ... (9:50 AM) : 

I loved the detail of the back!


Blogger Frozen Fashion said ... (9:51 AM) : 

The footwear both the ladies have chosed to wear that day standout in their photo's. I love the tan boots!
I am curious about what type of messages is capturing their attention. From one who adores them?

Beautiful coats! I think every girl should have a trench coat in their closet. It's the perfect garment to ease in and out of those cold winter months.

Nice! very lovely

Blogger BluestGreen said ... (10:35 AM) : 

I like the red and grey combination in the second picture.I love the shoes in both pictures, particularly the second one.


Blogger diane said ... (10:37 AM) : 

I've never been fond of trenches, they just seem to remind me too much of 60's Italian cloak & dagger movies or segments of Natasha from Rocky & Bullwinkle. I think it depends on where you live, city or country.


Blogger Angel said ... (10:38 AM) : 

Both Ladies are quite beautiful. Its funny, almost everything about both pictures are Identical, coat, dress, hair, what their doing.. very cool.

It's that time of year. And despite the stigma they've gained over the years, I find trench coats very chic.

both chic stylish fashion forward world cities..and these photos prove it.

a neutral with bits of added colour.

( notice how the london street is a bit more clean than the nyc one)

Blogger BECKY MAY said ... (11:01 AM) : 

love the purple on the inside of the first coats sleeves. so cool



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:17 AM) : 

the second is the smartest look i've seen in ages. that high seam in the back, the heels, her bangles, her hair.

your photographs are simply brilliant.


Blogger Laura said ... (11:27 AM) : 

I love those Marnis in the 2nd pic


Blogger rizomdesigns said ... (11:33 AM) : 

2nd one most definitely ~ looks like Grace Kelly ~ beautiful...


Blogger secret38 said ... (11:47 AM) : 

amazing - but I am curious - live in London and almost never see anyone round about now with bare legs like this at this time of year - though of course we all should cos it really makes the trench!


Blogger 82Brute said ... (11:50 AM) : 

Love the badass boots in the first look and the color on the turned up sleeve. In the second? Everything. From slightly demure upswept hair to the perfect shade of red on the dress showing beneath the coat to the touch of red toenail polish peeking out from her incredible shoes, this whole outfit is a knock out.


Blogger CELINE said ... (12:03 PM) : 

- The beautiful light and the shiny textures in the second photo! Also, the colors: Concrete trench, rich red skirt - repeated in the nail color - and those elegant, but relaxed, shoes!


Blogger JAKARECH said ... (12:15 PM) : 

I like how you show the back of the trench, it's a very rare portrayal. We ususally always photograph the trench from the front... classic with a twist. Love it!


Anonymous AnonymousJK said ... (12:16 PM) : 

Love the second coat, shoes and bag!


Blogger V.V. said ... (12:18 PM) : 

trench+heels classic combination but it always works!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:27 PM) : 

Funny, for some reason I always associate ladies' trench coats with hair in a bun. And there it is: hair in a bun. Twice!

lady #2 is amazing.


Blogger cuppycakeme said ... (12:41 PM) :

Hot shoes! I just wish that everyone weren't always staring at their phones. Just sayin.

I love the way the second woman styled herself, but I dislike the cut of her trench. Those shoes with the red dress? Yum~


Blogger Mercina said ... (3:23 PM) : 

Love the purple trim on the trench and the berry skirt peeking out from the jacket. So chic.


Anonymous tina said ... (3:36 PM) : 

funny, both of them in heels and the dresses end just below the trench hem. they are even both with their mobiles and almost with the same hairstyle...

amazing photos! Love the looks!



Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (6:02 PM) : 

As a HUGE trench fan, I absolutely love both outfits, the 2nd one in particular: the vibrant red, the contrasting texture of the bag..brilliant! Even the hair...perfectly polished.


Blogger Ninjagaiden78 said ... (6:24 PM) : 

The first womans shoes are out of sight!


Blogger Liz S said ... (6:43 PM) : 

I just can't help but notice how similar these 2 look!

(Am trying to go past the crushing on the first)...and have to say love the mauve and teal with the trench neutral.

And the navy and cherry red with the taupe of the 2nd coat is just perfect.


Anonymous h said ... (7:47 PM) : 

the "wear-your-coat-as-cape" trend just got very boring

I like trenches, they remind me of England. But here? Can't wear them much.


Anonymous Maui Girl said ... (8:48 PM) : 

The one on top looks great, specially with the purplish lining. Not really liking the bottom one, it lacks shape. Great pics though.


Blogger Rosaspina Vintage said ... (9:26 PM) : 

Sweet! Love the second picture, very storytelling.


Blogger Briana Le & Merissa Ren said ... (9:46 PM) : 

the purple cuffs! such a great detail.

Love the nude trench!


Blogger Laurita P said ... (10:44 PM) : 

deep red (2nd photo) is amazing with camel colors. gorgeous!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:40 AM) : 

I'm liking the second one. Her shoes are fantastic. The grey trench is beautiful and the red peaking out is mysterious. Great look. The first one seems too common for me.


Blogger Wendy said ... (3:21 AM) : 

Love trenches.....BUT, Love the boots in the first pic!!! Awesome!


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:39 AM) : 

I love the colors (purple and red) peeking out in both photos. Lovely! xxx

Trench is THE must have in a wardrobe !!! And the little leopard print handbag in the bottom picture is so adorable. It's the Lanvin Happy bag :) So in love with this bag !!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:10 AM) : 

I wonder if there will be more and more photos of people engrossed in their electronics instead of looking out to the world for visual information. At least we have you out there observing reality and recording it!


Anonymous TheAL said ... (8:12 AM) : 

I really like the touch of lavender on that first trench!


Blogger The Clever Pup said ... (9:29 AM) : 

I see you avoided the "on the street and in the trenches" quote by Churchill, I think.


Blogger Eryl said ... (9:37 AM) : 

What I find fascinating about these two coats is that they both go by the same name. The top one is very much a traditional trench coat, but the second shows how far it's possible, over time, to push all the boundaries and still be seen to fit them. It is grey, rather than beige, has no belt or (as far as I can see) epaulettes, the waist is high and slightly smocked, even the fabric seems to be different. Yet it is still a Trench: brilliant. It's also gorgeous.


Blogger amber lynn said ... (11:37 AM) : 

i just love that second coat!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:05 PM) : 

Do these women really walk around the city in those shoes?

They are gorgeous, the shoes I mean, but they must be killers.


Anonymous LIZPR said ... (7:28 PM) : 

OH GOD! LOVE LOVE LOVE! The great thing about texting, Scott, is it gives you the chance to sneak in a few shots of people unawares, as they're focussed on texting! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:58 PM) : 

i know everyone is commenting on the looks, which is great, by the way. but what i love is that both ladies got really nice, toned calves!

I love shoes!


Blogger Kathleen said ... (11:20 AM) : 

I like the second photo for several reasons, mostly because of the red peaking out from under the "different" looking trench, and the purse too! But also, she is taking care of her trench. I understand that trench coats can be a more "knock around" type outer garment, but I don't think we should let them start to get the unkept look. Especially when we are dressed to the nines underneath.

60s and Rocky and Bullwinkle - Natasha really rocked it. I love the way the lilac lining sets off the light tan of the boots.
