Cool pieces like the velvet blazer deserve a close-up this season. It's a brave new world; I love venturing forth in scrumptious velvet instead of my usual black leather moto jacket. The purple velvet jacket was snagged for five dollars from the Refinery Consignment Boutique (formerly the Uptown Consignment) Bi-Monthly Five Dollar Sale!
Beautiful handmade rhinestone shank buttons and a visit to my trusty tailor helped transform my find into "specs"tacular. Suiting up with bellbottom velvet jeans added "flair". And, allowing your frilly or lace shirt sleeves to extend softly out from under jacket sleeves is much more interesting (For your own velvet jacket- check out Frame Denim for their stellar classic).
With this deal, I could be put away for highway robbery, but at
least I'll look fabulous with my handsome uniformed escorts! xoxo
