I was actually going to write about my Valentino Boutique Tweed skirt suit today but I had to drop everything because of this fun development in my quest to earn my keep as a reseller of fine designer clothing on eBay.
Quick back story. I bought this DKNY beige embroidered trench coat (in the rough photos below) some time ago. It’s been sitting in my closet, folded in my eBay storage bin where I left it because it was wrinkled at the time of my purchase and intended to take it to the dry cleaners. Normally I steam my own clothing but my fear was that if I used my home steamer I’d leave water stains. The fabric content is silk and linen, I believe. Anyway, long story short, while I was researching my vintage 1980’s Valentino Boutique skirt suit, I came across this amazing Valentino embroidered trench. It retails for a steep $12900.00.
I’ve since hung the DKNY trench outside in the Florida humidity to air it out before taking it to the dry cleaner.
Of course they’re not an exact match but a strong similarity certainly does exist! If I were on a budget, which I am, and I wanted to achieve the look within my budget, I would without a doubt, consider the DKNY embroidered trench coat to be a fine alternative.
I will get right on this!!
