Winter Inspiration: Velvet

Unfortunately, it's still freezing here so I haven't been able to start playing around with S/S looks. Instead, I'm still loving and lusting over the F/W collections.

Velvet has gotten a bad rap in the past, but the fashion world has recently seen the material go from frumpy to fabulous. I love the luxe look of velvet, whether it be a pair of black harem pants, a strong-shouldered top, or a simple, structured frock. Seeing as my pockets are quite shallow, I'll likely be settling for Aritzia's take on the trend - leaving behind Prada and Bottega Veneta's for some other lucky girl.
