Breakfast at Tiffany's & a Timeless Trench Coat

Who could ever forget Audrey Hepburn's big break as a hopeless romantic in the timeless classic Breakfast at Tiffany's.  Hepburn's naive and eccentric character, Holly Golightly, spends her time at wealthy parties, meeting high-class men who take her on expensive dates.  But portraying a childlike innocence and carefree spirit, she fears the ever so inevitable commitment to a cheeky romance spawned by a new neighbor in the area, which will unknowingly cost her more than her Givenchy clothing and accessories.

Even despite her blithe and airy innocence, Audrey Hepburn's character is doused in the most desired of designer clothing!  Although most of her outfits have stolen the hearts of many on the flawless Audrey Hepburn, the light-beige trench coat doubling as a chic raincoat made the final scene impossible to ignore!

I came across a beautiful vintage trench/raincoat that is nearly identical to that of Audrey Hepburn's on an Etsy shop known as Bop and Awe, owned by a wonderful woman in town.  Bop and Awe is an online vintage shop that collects vintage clothing from as early as the 50s!  The trench coat I am referring to portrays a beautiful, light-beige silhouette with chest and hip pockets, buttons, a cinching belt, and more!  It is at an extremely reasonable price for a vogue raincoat from the 70's that will keep you looking chic in the rain!  

I am absolutely in love with this piece!  It is perfect for a night out or even just a cover up for another outfit.  Click here to view more details on this lovely, one of a kind, vintage piece and be sure to check out Bop and Awe's pleated skirt collection as well!  Enjoy the photos below!
