Coco the Cat (yes, as in Chanel, duh!) wants in the photo too.

We Forever 51’ers have meaningful relationships with other women that reach in all directions – backward, forward, sideward, lol. And when we started this blog over six months ago, Shelley’s aunt reached out to her and asked if she’d like to do a post on her vintage, Burberry, fire-engine red trench coat. The women in Shelley’s family have long had a keen eye for the ever-hip because here it is, 2017, and what’s HOT this fall? Yep, fire-engine red AND the trench coat. We ALL want this coat.

Without further gabbing, here’s Shelley sizzling in a classic Burberry Trench. And we affectionately dedicate this post to Aunt Suzie. The support we receive from everyone in our lives means the world to us. ♥

Shelley picks up the colors of the coat’s classic lining in her black destructed pant, white v-neck tee, and camel suede bootie.

She continues the colors with a necklace constructed of red beads, a gold circle, and a black stone drop.
