I LOVE VELVET!!!!! Ok, just needed to get that out. I'm ready to Adult now. But seriously, I've been a velvet lover since I was a kid. I figure skated my entire childhood and I always wanted velvet dresses for competitions and shows. It just always felt special, luxurious. To this day, I feel the same. I love when fall comes around because it becomes okay to "velvet things up".  And that's just what the heck I do!  

 

This pink velvety goodness is actually 2 pieces.  The top is a bodysuit. It goes great with everything, as I'm sure you've seen me pair it with denim on my feed. But nothing compares to it paired with its wrap skirt mate. It's a match made in heaven!  The two pair so seemlessly, it's often mistaken for a dress, but no,no. These two are star crossed velvet lovers 😍.  You of course can pair the skirt with any bodysuit or crop top of your choosing and it will look magnificent as well. 

 

This outfit fit comes from my friends at Band of Gypsies.  They are an LA based brand and they are at the top of the trend charts! Check out their pieces, they are sure to wow you and make you into a fan, of you aren't already!

Falling for Velvet

I love fall, for so many reasons. Halloween. Thanksgiving. Moto Jackets. Colorful leaves. But damn it do I love velvet. It's like some feverish disease, if I see it, I need it. Boots, dress, jacket, pants, skirts...it doesn't matter. I want it, I want it, I WANT IT!!! 

 

But...you can over do Velvet. It's important to break it up a bit. I had a show this weekend where I wore the beauitful crushed velvet dress featured in this post. The next day I tried to wear a pink velvet bodysuit and someone had to stop me. "Maybe don't pull out all of the velvet all at once."  Damn it. They were right.  

 

So how how do I not over-do velvet this fall? Well I have a plan. I'm going to commit to two pieces of velvet in one setting. In the case of this look, velvet otk boots and velvet mini dress. I'm almost overdoing it here but I broke it up with a clean, cream colored jacket. However, had the bag also been velvet, that would have been a situation.  

 

Im also committing to only wearing Velvet twice a week. That's going to be tough. I have somehow already stockpiled my fall wardrobe with a lot of these luxurious pieces; MUST. HOLD. BACK.  

 

Velvet tends to be dressier, so I'm going to try and save my pieces for events and special occasions. So fully expect to see me in velvet for Halloween and Thanksgiving! 😉
