Winter Velvet: Thumbs up or down?

Thursday, January 3, 2013

Velvet is a tricky rascal, isn’t it? Well, whoever I talk to they either love it or can not stand it! This winter the only thing I want to do is bundle up in a berry velvet blazer with elbow patches, tons of layer underneath and stay like that all the way to spring. I love how stylish it can look and how versatile it is.
 
So loves, how about you? Would you rock a velvet blazer, jacket, dress, skirt or a pair of shoes this winter? Or not a fan? xo
 
P.S: And a few other trends that I adore!
P.P.S: Plus, elegance at its best:)

Thumbs way up...I am still just trying to find the perfect velvet to sport. most are too flimsy to lay proper these days. I need to find a good vintage piece.
Loving that golden maxi skirt, swoon!

I would do it if I could make it look glam rock like in the last photo!

It totally is, isn't it, Kayla?

Yay, Jen and Justine, that is a great idea:) I am swooning over velvet blazers right now.

Diana Mieczan said...

I so agree with you, Amy. It's so hard to find a great and well fitting piece.

I adore that take on it too, Christianna. Awesome!

A big thumbs UP! I don't own any but I so wish I did. Why did we hate velvet again? I remember hating it.. I just don't remember why..

Diana Mieczan said...

Isn't it stunning, Tiffany?

Diana Mieczan said...

I totally agree, Lisa! I do not remember why as well. :)

Definite thumbs up to the blazers. Unfortunately, I'm not a velvet skirt, dress, shoes kinda gal. Too many bad memories from the 80s of my mom forcing me to wear velvet and corduroy (not at the same time, of course) on the playground! ;)

Thumbs up! Not all velvet is created equal though ;)

Mari said...

Thumbs up! Nice look :)

Diana Mieczan said...

Etec, I so know the feeling. I had a red velvet dress as a child that I wasn't too into:) Giggle!

Diana Mieczan said...

Very good point, Pinecone Camp:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Mari, yay!

Oooh! A big thumbs up from me. I love the chance to wear velvet in winter (and any other time of year I can get away from it really!!)
