Second Chances

One popular trend this winter is velvet!  I really didn't own anything velvet so I wanted to add a piece to my closet.  In the past I had a pair of velvet leggings and I was less then thrilled when the back started to wear down over time from sitting.  That definitely was not the look I was going for and it was less then flattering! LOL!  Ever since then I have been a little scared of wearing velvet but I thought I would give it another try. Everything deserves a second chance!  I found this cute little crushed velvet skirt for under $20 and I thought it was perfect.  Since black velvet can be worn with almost anything it was easy to style.  I know not everything has to match to make a great outfit but when I found these tights to match my jacket I just couldn't help but wear them together!  I know I could have worn just plain black tights with this outfit but wearing these is just so much more fun! :)

These patterned tights are the perfect choice! They add so much more dimension and interest than simple black tights ever could! I wish I was as bold as you! You look great and you are definitely rocking that velvet! I've never tried velvet before but I really should! It's sophisticated and glamorous! <3 katsfashionfix.blogspot.com
