Trend Alert: Crushing on Velvet
I'm FALL-ing in LOVE with Velvet this season. If you saw any of the New York Fashion Week madness, then you may have seen some of the killer ways velvet is making a comeback and I'm oh so excited about it.
Crushed velvet is usually what the fabric is called in more approachable (i.e. affordable) catalogues and I'm rounding up my faves for you here on the blog to get you ready for the staple that's making a fierce comeback.
Every single one of these items are making me drool and I know my bank account won't be able to hold my love for this trend for ALL the ways I want to live it, but my gut is saying I'm going to invest in some of the items that will get me through more than just one season. My faves have probably got to be the velvet dresses, since you can dress them up or down depending on your mood and the time of year and also the jackets or cardigans -- I know they will be a great transitional piece from Fall to Winter and then again from Winter to Spring. I'm probably going to need to get a pair of velvet boots too, just because I can't avoid their awesomeness forever, but because I live in the coldest state in the country (really wish I was kidding with that statement - haha) these will likely need to be more Fall/Spring wears for me since I'd likely ruin them with all the snow we get! Too bad, so sad.
