Vintage 80s Norton McNaughton velvet jacket, self made high-waisted pants, Forever 21 wide brim felt hat/fur bag, Shoeone boots.
Apparently velvet is going to be huge for FW '11. While velvet has never been my fabric of choice, I like this jacket a lot for it's shoulder pads, lack of collar, simple buttons and the complete absence of embellishments on the sleeves. While the cut may be simple, the pattern speaks for itself. I added a hat wide enough to function as an umbrella just in case it rained.
Disappointingly, just like the $400 I was told would be paid back in 2009, the rain turned out to be an unfulfilled promise.
See what I did there? No? Good. I maintain the illusion of being fabulous.
