It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

Claridges & Burberry - POSH!

Fancy swanning about the shopping avenues of London clad in a scrumptious Burberry Trench Coat?  Scampering into High Tea draped knowingly in the Burberry signature check?  Well, Claridges Hotel in London is the place for you then, you little fashionista!

Claridges has partnered with the luxury British clothier, Burberry, to offer their iconic trench coats in your butlered suite this season.  There will be a lovely Burberry trench waiting for you in your wardrobe, for you to use as you stroll about London, and should you wish to purchase it on your departure, your butler can assist with that.  Of course he can!

Princess Kate's got one!
Yes, I know she's only a Duchess,
but she'll always be Princess Kate to me.

"This is fabulous!" I can hear you squealing, and, yes, it is.  But it's also mind bogglingly expensive.  I did a search for their most affordable suite for one night and the prices start from £1040 and lurch upwards at a nose bleeding speed.  But it does come with a full English breakfast the next morning, so I guess there's that ...

Now, should you just want to trot along to Burberry and flash the plastic to get your mittens on one of their trenches, you can do so for about £1000 (full price), spend the remaining £40 on groceries and cook your own flipping breakfast.  And then you get to keep the coat!

Though, I guess, if you can afford to stay at Claridges, then cash probably isn't a huge problem for you.  It is a fun idea though.

Alexa Chung's got one too!
