Velvet, Baby! / Trend Spotlight

The past few months I've seen an explosion of velvet/chenille garments in stores & I've been taking full advantage! I usually stray away from shiny or flashy fabrics, but velvet-esque fabrics add luster and texture to an outfit, and it's much more subtle than sequins or metallics. Another handy thing about it is that it's a slick material, so you won't attract as much lint (or cat hair, lol).

Here I'm wearing the same jacket as the picture above, but in a dressed-down way. It's an extremely versatile piece and I love that it's classic in an unexpected way. This blazer is from Folly and is by dRA Los Angeles.

Next up is another lil number you can take from day 2 night. You can wear it with a light jacket and booties, or with chandelier earrings and heels. The options are endless! I bought this secondhand at Crossroads Trading (Hawthorne location) and the brand is Audrey 3+1.

And lastly, I can't leave out chenille! (what's that?) This sweater was bought new from Crossroads Trading. Before this fabric was splashed all over department stores I only saw it utilized in scarves and hats that older ladies would knit (no hate tho, that shit is still cute!), or on clearance as Joann Fabric. Similar to the velvet-esque fabrics, chenille doesn't attract lint or hair! Side note: I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I have a HUGE lint pet-peeve, lol.
