Psynopsis Vintage White Leather Trenchcoat
When I complained to Sarah that "There are no good 2nd hand stores in Berlin – everything is overprized and of shoddy quality!" she just smiled and led me down a dark path (okay, ugly road) in the borough of Steglitz where no hipster has ever set foot – and there I found it: The white leather trench coat. Totally unworn, totally unloved (the person it came from must have had the same reaction to it as Sarah: 'It's so disgusting, I can't even touch it!'), and maybe it's my weakness for forlorn looking beings and objects (but probably rather the fact that driving the Vespa has led to a constant look-out for wind-proof and zip-uppable jackets) that I felt love at first sight. The friendly shop owner gave us recommendations for leather soap brands (which will be so necessary) - now the real question is: Do I need white boots to go with it… ♥



Happy that she led you to good places. I've actually found some great pieces shopping at secondhand shops in Berlin. That's a gorgeous trench coat. /Madison
