4th of July » Cropped Trench Cape

Happy Fourth of July! I hope everyone is having a great time with a mid-week day off. So rare right? Rare like this Stella McCartney Trench Cape that has been on my radar for a while now. I have seen it on Anh from 9to5chic.com and now the lovely Wendy from Wendyslookbook.com.

My search ended on Ebay but not with the Stella McCartney trench cape. It’s a look a like in a different color.

The cropped trench is very cute with a 3/4 sleeve rather than long sleeves. And it is a thin cotton trench not as high quality as the Stella McCartney trench. I do like the color and the sizing is all right. There are some thread snags already. But I get what I paid for. I just love the look of a cropped trench and the pleated back with the curved sides.

I have found a super look a like of the Stella McCartney Trench here at a fraction of the cost. I purchased it but haven’t put together an outfit yet. It’s been too hot to even try to wear it. I rather wear the Ebay Chinese replica trench because it’s just a lot thinner and more appropriate for the Texas weather right now. People already think I’m crazy for wearing a jacket but with the rainy weather lately, my neighbors haven’t been giving me the weird eye look.
