Velvet is back this season, so says the entire fashion industry anyways, and I am into it. I bought this blazer at Zara like a million years ago and I’ve maybe worn in 5 times mostly to class presentations. I bought it because I have always had a slight obsession with velvet. It may be because when I was a kid I remember many of my favourite items I wore being velvet-this red dress I wore for christmas and class photos and this lilac gymnastics suit I continued to wear as a bathing suit well after I stopped going to gymnastics.

This blazer fit really well with all the cuts for the curves I do not have, and I figured was an easy throw-on piece for added structure. Sometimes as a more petite human adding structure to your outfit can be really helpful to shaping you and helping you look a little older even if you paired with boyfriend jeans and a baggy tee.

I love velvet because it’s such a rich texture that adds that extra note of cool to your outfit. Velvet is so underrated but now I’m seeing a huge welcoming to the fabric even in shoes this season. My fuzzy texture loving heart approves.
