This week’s Instagram (http://instagram.com/jennyvintage66)
As a child, I remember my mum always looking very glamorous with red nails, flame-red curly hair and a beautiful Burberry trench right through the autumn and winter each year. The trench I wore all weekend – and will most likely do so every day until bitter furry coat weather – is the same one my dad bought for her before a trip to Paris in 1990. And it’s still in fantastic condition. I think my dad probably wanted my mum to feel as chic as the Parisian women so they went to the Burberry shop in London and each got a classic style with their initials embroidered in the labels.
It’s had a lot of love over the years but for a while has just hung in the wardrobe in the spare room at our house. But now I have secured firm permission to play with it as much as I want! Cue a lot of very giddy ‘oh my God, where did you get that coat?’ Thanks mum!

I’ve been pretty excited about the unveiling of Coco Fennell’s latest collection for a few weeks. Ever since her teaser shots on Instagram I’ve been staring at the Penny Lane dress (top) and the Tiger Tiger dress (an update of the very popular bee, lasso and pill motifs of past seasons).
Here are my favourites…
