Model Answer 1:
Recently I have bought a trench coat titled as Maison Margiela form a branded store here in Germany. This is a nice looking coat and comes in the latest fashion and style. The coat has some special features and fastening capacities. I would like to thank you for this nice cue card topic.
I bought the coat from Harvey Nichols – a renowned clothing brand across the country. It took 2000 euros – a bit expensive for a student like me. But I could not resist myself from buying the coat because of its extraordinary look. I planned that I will adjust the other costs in this month since that was an expensive clothing.
I bought the trench coat to protect myself from the cold in this winter. It was fashionable too. Besides, the special cuts on the coat body were attractive. The coat comes with stone cut double breasted button on the front side. The belt that I use to fasten is detachable. The fabric is made from pure cotton and it also comes with dry cleaning facility.
After purchasing the coat, I had a mixture of feelings. First of all, I felt a deep sense of satisfaction to have the coat. It appeared like an expensive wealth to me. But when I consider the price, it appeared that I am going to have some financial troubles this month. I have spent almost all the pocket money to have the coat. So, it was a bit difficult situation for me to adjust with the remaining euros for the rest of the month. However, I was happy to have a dazzling trench coat like this.
