Umbrellas are not enough to keep me dry and dignified and I have long since abandoned the idea that PVC raincoats are cute and fun to wear. In fact, I am repulsed by the usual plastic raincoats I see in the shopping malls or street and if forced to choose, would rather get soaked in the rain than wear such an appalling accoutrement. That is, until I saw the Valentino Rockstud trench coat from the s/s 2013 collection.
Now if raincoats looked as fashionable as this, I would probably be hoarding them by now. As much as I would love to own this Valentino Rockstud trench coat and parade it on the street, under the rain, with a "matching" stylish umbrella, I can only stare at it till my eyes water and maybe even dream about it while melancholy staring at the pouring rain.
And until I find something equally or at least even the slightest bit as stylish as this one, I'm going to have to brave the rain...or maybe just stay indoors till the sun comes out again.
