Black Velvet

So I’ve always been obsessed with velvet, it’s soft and warm, and allows for statement pieces that can easily be dressed down.  In this case, the black and the faux turtleneck make it a timeless piece to own, but the velvet gives it a romantic twist. I was looking and realized I own velvet dresses, tops, overalls, pants, and headbands, I have an addiction.  Anytime I see anything velvet it takes all my will power to either not purchase it, or try it on.

For today’s look I wanted to throwback to just a timeless statement of muted colors and classic silhouette. This velvet top paired with this wool maxi skirt was perfect for work. The paisley is done so it’s very subtle and only serves to add to the look. To keep the who thing very subdued I opted for my minimal square pendant, and matching square earrings. A fully thrifted outfit that was complimented all day! When purchasing items, find ones that can be combined with things already in your closet.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you can make four outfits with a piece, then purchase it. What is the fabric or pattern you’re obsessed with?
