Outfit: Being Meryl

This photo was actually taken a while back to help out a blog reader who was working on a project illustrating how the trench coat is a timeless piece. I am wearing my vintage Burberry trench which I utterly love. Do you recognise the pose? I was reenacting the famous Meryl Streep pose in Kramer vs Kramer from 1979. The film was made 3 years before I was born so I think that proves the trench really is a keeper piece! The dress and boots are vintage finds too, but you can find similar chocolate brown boots in this Guess pair and I recommend ebay for finding vintage Burberry trenches.

  1. Hi Pearl! I love your tribute to the trench coat! I have a question for you. I don’t know if you remember many months ago I left a comment saying how you reminded me of this lovely lady in an ad from the 40’s (of pearls none the less:) Anyways, I hope you don’t mind if I use a picture of you with the ad on my blog and reference back to your blog. I am doing a blog post on bloggers and their vintage counterparts and I would love to include this one:)
