Have had a love affair with velvet for as long as we can remember; velvet when little, velvet for high school holiday stuff, velvet for Christmas time with a young man who is now husband for thirty-plus years, velvet for my littles when they were little, and now velvet: again and forever, at fifty-something, and probably forever.
They say velvet is trending, hey, we wore that fabric at younger sister’s wedding in Tuscany a decade and a half ago.
Now, we love it on our feet, and on our body, and basically all around.
Met our second daughter for fancy cocktail event and she was wearing: black velvet off-shoulder top and black denim, of course.

With recent (and ongoing) closet edit we good-willed a bunch, and now covet a longer wrap jacket, and some easy wide-legged pants. Probably won’t wear them with the velvet Gucci boots, those can stand alone with last season and before closet add-ins. We’ll wear the new stuff with some down low Birkenstocks, or perhaps a fancy sneaker, and almost always with a good knit.
Which leads us to next favorite textile, cashmere. V-neck cashmere sweater, closet classic. When the stars are aligned we have a good-looking good-feeling cashmere v-neck in wardrobe rotation.
Every day dress and velvet is trending, forever. Pull out your velvet or add a little new, now’s the time. xoxo
