“I would drape myself in velvet, if it was socially acceptable.” George Costanza – Seinfeld
Julie, I agree with George. There is nothing more luxurious than velvet. Fortunately for us, velvet is in, especially for the holidays.
You can sample the trend by wearing it as an accessory, like Ralph Lauren’s divine Velvet Suede Peeptoe heels
or with a sweet, simple velvet purse, like this one from TopShop
Add a bit more, like this simple sheath from Banana Republic
Or, this very modern chevron stripe dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs, available at Neiman Marcus
I, for one, am more like George. I would like to be ensconced in velvet.
Drape me in this warm espresso velvet maxi dress, from T by Alexander Wang (available at ShopBop)
Even better, this elegant long dress from that other Seinfeld regular, J. Peterman
George would be jealous.
