Velvet Revolver

January 14, 2011
{Anthropologie Blazer, Homemade brooch, J. Crew shirt, Market Infinity Scarf via Bar Denim, Ray Ban Aviators, 7 For All Mankind Jeans, Diana Warner Disco Ball Earrings, UGG Clogs, Forever 21 bag}

When I was little I remember my mom picking out winter outfits for me that usually consisted of frilly lace, plaid, and velvet. I was also that first grader that wore the velvet button down shirts. And possibly velvet pants. Looking back, I like to think I was just that much farther ahead of the fashion trend. Velvet’s made quite the come back lately, and I love it. Not only does it have a luxurious look and feel, but it also makes you instantly huggable!  If you remember this post (also when I last wore this scarf), this blazer is the gorgeous piece from Anthropologie that I got for a steal during my NY trip! I can’t wait to pair it with skinny jeans and skirts with tights during these next few bitterly cold months ahead. Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!

    You are so. Freaking. Adorable. Seriously, can I please BE you? I adore your velvet blazer — the drapey fit is perfection. And how cute is that darling bag? What a fun shape!

    You made that broach?!?! So cute! I love velvet too…Now I’m reminiscing over my green velvet skirt and vest combo worn during my nursery school days lol.

    What a great ensemble! I love the blazer–I’m obsessed with velvet. I just scored a pair of velvet pumps from a thrift store in NYC called Unique Boutique. If you are ever back in NYC, you should check it out! It’s on 93rd b/t 2nd and 3rd.

    P.S. I finished Mini-Shopaholic! I loved it! I never get tired of Sophie Kinsella’s books!

    When I was in the seventh grade, I had a dark red, velvet blazer for my band performance. (NERD ALERT) I was horrified because I was wearing something different than anybody else, so I hid the blazer behind a row of bleachers. I kind of wish I had that blazer now (I bet I could still fit into it — I haven’t grown much — bahahahahaaha) because velvet is such a huge wardrobe staple of current fashion.

    Love the flower

    Gah! I love that blazer – especially the color and the slouchy pockets. Of course it’s from Anthro….the most fantastic, yet generally unattainable (monetary-wise) store. I’m pretty sure I could live inside an Anthropology store…or if I had a home of my own, furnish my entire house with their product (that includes my closet!!!!) . Very cute look, and love your homemade broach, too!

      Anthro can be a little pricey that’s for sure! I managed to find this gem for 60% off in the sale part of the store. So I ALWAYS check back there, even if it means sifting through the not-so-great items. The stores are even like a little escape from reality! Everything’s beautiful!
