This is going to be a long post full of pictures of Birmingham and I, just cause I added a few scenery pics as well. Birmingham is the second largest city in England after London. It has its own uniqueness but personally it's not my cup of tea. I'd still prefer London. The building on the background is Selfridges, in Birmingham, and the architecture is inspired by Paco Rabanne's sequinned dress. Well, the building itself screams Paco Rabanne all over. I really like it though, I wish they would build such thing in London in addition to what seems already a lot of London famous landmarks. Oh these were taken in March 2013, by the way and you can see the snow so you could sum up what kind of country this is. Or what was left of it, at least.

I personally think Burberry make the finest trench coats in the world, the most classic among all trench coats. The fact that Thomas Burberry was the an original designer explains everything. Actually there are two brands who claim on the invention of this particular type of outerwear: Burberry and Aquascutum, both from the UK. However, it might be because I heard about Burberry first, that I always see their trench coats are to die for, especially in earthy colour tone. They are perfect. That's why buying one is such an investment piece. I wouldn't refuse if you buy me a second one. Or a third.
Til next post.
