All I used to think about velvet was "theatre curtains".
But on a recent trip I found this great black velvet ( and sequin!) blazer and fell in love with it's cosy-ness. After scoring the royal blue velvet Gloria Swanson fitted number* above, I realized there were a few other fuzzy, warm velvet accents in the shop, and I kind of like them a lot. Who knew! These three items above are in the shop now.
*This Gloria Swanson blazer I found out online was part of an all-velvet suit, shame I don't have the skirt!
