Having a Crush on Crushed Velvet

On my last post I wrote about silk and today it's all about velvet. Can you tell I'm majorly into fabrics? Maybe it's from my short stint in interior design, but I'm crazy over them. The first thing I do when I buy something is walk up and touch it , move it, play with it, see how it drapes, see how it moves, see how soft it will be, see how the light catches it, I mean this is really an obsession (clearly).  To me, this is the reason to buy or wear more expensive things. It's all about the quality of the fabric and how that fabric is sewn and meant to lay. Before I get too off-topic, this is why fabrics are to me the building blocks of ANY great wardrobe. Anybody who's ever been in an amazing fabric store will certainly confirm this- OH THE POSSIBILITIES!!!!! It's like heaven for anyone creative (aka me.)

Maybe you're not as much of a fashion geek/ obsessed as I am, but you still need to know about velvet right now. It's in every store anywhere and a major trend at least until Spring 2016, ha. What doesn't look good wrapped in velvet (especially during the Holidays?!) It'll take any shoe from basic to luxe, and give that mini skirt a little extra va-va-voom. Check out below some of my favorite velvet picks for the season and let me know how you're wearing it this year! Headband? key chain? I mean the list is a mile long, right?

In this post I'm wearing a midi - length black crushed velvet dress from Azalea SF. I love the slit on the side which is really flattering. It's a great number to dress up with jewelry and a heel for a Holiday party or put a sweater over with a bootie for any day this Fall and Winter.
