|Black velvet jacket (size 6): Ralph Lauren, 2006|
Long No. 2 pencil skirt in sovereign paisley (size 4): J.Crew, spring 2012
Boots: Ann Taylor, old
I so rarely wear black that I actually feel a little strange when I do wear it. But I've always loved this little velvet blazer, and it's such a classic shape it still works after all these years. I " winterized" this lightweight skirt with the velvet jacket and tights and boots. I thought it turned out just OK but I received a lot of compliments all day. It always surprises me when I wear an outfit that I think is just so-so, and everyone else likes it, and then when I wear an outfit that I think is awesome, no one says anything.
Hope you're having a good week!
