Style Log: The Trench Coat Dress

I love trench coats!  They are so stylish to wear on a rainy day.  They just have this sort of effortless elegance to it that jumps out without it being in your face.  So when I saw this trench coat inspired dress, I just had to have it (even if it was a bit too big).  The best part was that it was on SALE…AND, it was in a PETITE size!  It was meant to be!! #smallvictories
