Back at the end of January, Gossip Girl premiered its 100th episode which was the “Royal Wedding” episode. It wasn’t the gorgeous Vera Wang dresses or the spectacular setting at the reception that caught my eye, however, it was Georgina Spark’s trench coat. As soon as it appeared on the screen I was dying over it. I had a hard time finding out who made it at first, there was very little info online… but after a couple days it was all over the internet. I discovered it was a version of Burberry’s Heritage Trench called “Gem Embellished Trench”, that it came in black and khaki, that it retailed for $1,695 and that it had sold out before even going on sale. I started scrambling to come up with the perfect plan of attack to make the same one my self and while it was wildly successful, it took me nearly two months to complete! I am so happy with it though and I can’t wait to wear it… it’s going to be perfect for spring. After lots of trial and error I’ve found all the things that work and don’t work so with this Designer DIY Tutorial you should be able to make one for yourself in much less time! I actually didn’t pay a thing for this project, my grandmother had sent me some birthday money that came in the mail literally as I was heading out to buy supplies for this project, so armed with that and coupons I didn’t pay a thing but depending on your coat you can easily spend under $100.
