There is no denying that velvet is one of the biggest trends of 2017 & it’s a trend I can definitely get behind! My love for velvet started back in 1998. I was 8-9 years old & aside from bellbottoms & platform sneakers, my favorite fashion pieces were velvet. There were five velvet pieces I’ll NEVER forget because they were my life; 01. Purple butterfly print velvet mid-length skirt, 02. Pink paisley print velvet mid-length skirt (same brand as the butterfly one, obv), 03. Red top with a leopard print velvet collar that I ALWAYS wore with my 04. Black velvet mini skirt (also worn w black velvet heels, of course. Yes I’m proud of that head to toe velvet look), & 05. Blue velvet tee w a huge black peace sign on it. I would wear some of those pieces today, the others were sooooo gaudy, but I loved them! For today’s blog post I’m sharing my favorite velvet pieces from this decade, more specifically from this season.

It’s so interesting how trends come & go. When I was typing the following sentence in my first paragraph; “I was 8-9 years old & aside from bellbottoms & platform sneakers, my favorite fashion pieces were velvet”, I realized holy shit bellbottoms & platform sneakers are really big right now too. Also I feel a bit old at the fact that trends are on repeat in my lifetime as I remember being a wee lass & my parents, grandparents, etc talking like “back in the 70’s (or whatever decade) x (or y) was in & it’s crazy to see it in again”, haha. Anywho I hope you like the picks I shared with you today. Let me know your fav(s) in the comments below 🙂
