Seasonal Style: Velvet Skirt

Nearly ten years ago, I bought a velvet maxi skirt to wear to a semi-formal winter event.  Funny, but I still remember how I wore it: paired it with a lavender silk blouse and a black scarf tied around my waist as a belt.  The blouse and scarf were already in my closet.  The skirt represented my last-minute way to pull together an affordably-chic look for a special event.

The nice thing about this skirt is I bought it in late January.  So, I got a sweet price on a quality-made piece. Each winter, I enjoy pulling it out--several times--to don it not only to dressier affairs, but (sometimes) to work, too.  It's one of my seasonal favorites...

Do you enjoy wearing velvet?  What are some of your favorite winter pieces to sport?

Joy and peace!  T.
