Velvet

I’m such a fan of cool-weather fabrics – especially velvet. I’m always pleased to rediscover this trusty velvet blazer each fall.


Jacket, FANG. Dress, Merona. Boots, Nine West. Earrings, gift. Ring, vintage.


More velvet goodness:



Velvet...skirt, 3 dresses, 3 (more) blazers, gloves, 2 scarves, and a bag.

I'd like to add a pair of trouser-style, velvet shorts to my collection but haven't found a reasonably priced pair, yet.

I love velvet too - I tend to overload on velvet blazers, though!

This is a lovely outfit - the purple ruffles make my heart go pit-a-pat. :)

Ooooo, is that the Grandma Cookie broach I see?

That's actually the brooch that came attached to the jacket...but you can see it here:

OMG! Love all of it, but especially the BAG! Where's it from? (Please don't say vintage, swap, etc.) :)

I am a big velvet fan, too!
I still need to chop off my velvet "Kasmira" skirt..............
(the black floral)
though the darn waist is teeny!
i luckily got it in a sz. 12 ;)

CindyinSC - oooh, I am so sorry to tell you the bag is vintage. :(

Your blazer looks like it is a perfect fit. And the color combination is just wonderful!

Count me in as another velvet junkie - can't possibly have enough velvet jackets!

That combo looks snazzy, & velvet w/ruffles is alllllways a win in my book.

Love the color combo.
I happen to have a brown velvet jacket somewhere too, and a similar colored dress - must try a similar combo! :)
lovely blog! :)

Adore velvet too.
Even though I live in a rain or sun place, I have a dress and a couple of blazers that I adore AND WEAR no matter what- yes, sometimes people stare.
Even though they were new when I bought them I always get a vintage feel out of them-

That dress is a beautiful color.
