velvet goldmine

Since discovering that American Apparel is soon coming out with a velvet dress and leggings (top left and top center), I've become entranced by all things velvet. You can only really wear it in the winter and it's easy to end up looking a bit like Holiday Barbie, but there is something eternally luxe about it that I find hard to resist.

Velvet dresses have really changed since the with cumbersome silhouettes and funky fitting ones of the '80s. It's sooo much more prettier now, I think.

I'm totally in love with the top right. The top detail is gorgeous!

Velvet, hmm... I've never really been a fan, but these things look cute.
