Fall/Winter Wishlist: Velvet

Each year I create 2 wishlists. One for spring/summer and one for fall/winter.  Starting this week, I will feature one key item from my wishlist & share it with you guys. This week, my fall/winter piece is velvet. Velvet is such a rich & luxurious fabric. Its not just a thing of the 90’s anymore. Velvet blazers are at the top of my “velvet” wishlist. They are so versatile. You can literally throw them on with an abundance of things….from jeans, to skirts, to shorts with tights.  I cant imagine spending tons of money on trendy pieces. I’d much rather scour my local thrift stores in search of the perfect piece!

**How do you feel about the velvet trend?**

    I’m actually wearing velvet-like olive green pants today, I love a few key pieces, Not all at once, just one @ a time like the blazer, pants, hot shoes..just the right touch, never overdoing it.. If it’s done right, I think velvet looks spectcular.

    I didn’t even know it was a trend, thought it was always a classic material that would always be around just done in different styles. Nice picks.

    *in George Costanza voice* “What is that, velvet??” I’m a fan in small doses, I found a navy velvet J. Crew blazer at the thrift store (where else?) for $4 and I can’t wait to wear it! I love the shoes you featured on your post, you know I’m upping my shoe game, lol!

    Major fan. I actually have a black elvet one button blazer. I can’t wait to break it out. I want to wear it with a pair of tweed shorts and red bow tie blouse.

    And velvet shoes are a major YES.

    I love velvet with a balance. I have never mastered the blending of fabrics. Maybe I can venture outside of the box.

    “What is this? Velvet?” *chuckles*

    Anywho, I’ve always liked velvet. This trend always seem to make its way back to us, no? I just got this cute black velvet cheetah dress from the thrift store last week. I also have a black velvet cropped vest in my possession, too. I wouldn’t mind a blazer, though.

    I purchased a black velvet blazer back in March from Zara. I knew it would be in season again this winter so I was lucky enough to scoop it up for only $30 bucks….originally $129 (you know that’s one of Zara’s favorite prices, lol). But I do believe the best velvet treasures are indeed in thrift stores.

    this goes to show I need to stop clearing out my closet.
    I had two velvet blazers wine and black and I gave them away years ago.
    Couldn’t figure out how to style them back then, wish
    I would have kept them!
