No better way to kick off the new year than with one of my favourite things right now. Some velvety goodness. There are no cupcakes in sight, but stick with me for a moment. Yes, this outfit lacks all the glitter and sequins new year's eve often brings, but thats not what I tend to go for. My love for velvet is fairly recent beginning when I saw this YSL exhibition in Montreal. Prior to that, you say velvet and I would immediately think of curtains and upholstery. But no more. My outfit was inspired by Yves Saint Laurent's Le Smoking tuxedo. The trousers were a parting gift from a co-worker. And boy, was she bang on with the high waists and flared fit? The blazer was in the window at I Miss You Vintage, and I just couldn't come up with a good enough reason to leave it behind. I predict I'll be getting a lot of wear out of this one.
Back to reality tomorrow. The holidays have come to an end, but I'm still in denial. To numb the pain, I've been trying to find consolation in the beautiful voice that is Feist. Take a listen.
