Velvet Goldmine.

25 Oct

In the past few weeks, I’ve gotten well and truly into the notion of dressing for the colder weather.  Someone quite kindly told me they liked the ‘goth’ look I was going for and my mother less tenderly has referred to me as Morticia (though I do love the association) and I wear these badges proudly.  In dressing a bit darker, one of the most important things to pay attention to is texture.  Deep, luxurious colors deserve deep, luxurious fabrics and I have to admit that I am on a velvet kick at the moment.

Yes, this is a pile of velvet pumpkins.

And while I have yet to really pin down the perfect velvet jacket/kimono type situation, where I seem to be getting real excited is SHOES.  Mmhmm, that’s right.  Understanding they may not be super practical due to generally adverse weather conditions in the fall/winter…who am I kidding?  I’ve never done ‘practical’ when it comes to shoes and I have no intention of starting anytime soon.

Jill Stuart




And then I came across these bad boys…which are not velvet at all but somehow felt at home with the rest of my little collection.  Vera Wang Lavender.  Shut up and move in with me.  I promise to cherish you and love you to the point of smothering.

Hi, Vera.

I like what you’re workin’ with.
