Velvet in Summer

Most people would be horrified at the thought of wearing a 
velvet garment in the summer.
Black trousers Sigried Olsen  - Black button down shirrt Da Moda by Periority
- Snake print wedges Jessica Simpson - Purple suede jacket George

In my case it's perfect as my office a/c is set to Alaskan temperatures
and 


I am coming down with a cold.


Then again, all I needed was an excuse to wear this old friend.

Love this jacket! Personally I see nothing wrong with Velvet in the summer especially when most places are so cold inside. Looks beautfiul on you.

That rich, regal purple is divine! I love its inherent sense of opulence and sophistication, and see zero reason why you should't rock it all year round (I certainly wear some of my lighter weight velvet and suede pieces, such as beloved black 1950s pencil skirts, one each in velvet and faux suede, in the summer, too).

If it's always summer when you live, doesn't that mean you can wear whatever you feel like?

Not that it's fun to be stuck in a cold office, especially when you are getting sick.

Feel better Lorena!

Chic on the Cheap
