she wore blue velvet


I used to think velvet was vile. It reminded me of a grotesque pink confection my mother made me wear when I was young. Now I'm kind of in love with it, at least in these pieces. The first, Loubs in a gorgeous midnight blue velvet (paired with an acid-wash skinny, natch) and the second is a plush blazer by Topshop which is totally reminiscent of Gucci circa Tom Ford.

I thrifted a blazer exactly like the one here a few years ago... Never in a million years would I have thought I'd see it on a fashion blog, ever. Good thing! I'll have to dig it out again; my leather jacket has made me forget all my other jackets.

So many velvet things are hitting the stores lately it's making me give it a second look. Love those Louboutin's paired with acid wash denim (formery a blech in my book too!)
Thanks for the inspiration!

I love the Louboutins! I too used to dislike velvet very much as a child(I had a black velvet hat with a huge black velvet flower on it that my mother insisted I wear).
When I heard velvet was IN again I didn't think too much of it until I saw all the lovely pieces that are being sold.
