Velvet George

Grey trousers Cato - Silk cream tank top with sequins Emmanuel Ungaro vintage - Turquoise velvet blazer George 
Black quilted bucket bag Love Moschino - Black flats Me Too 
Sequinned silk top vintage Emmanuel Ungaro - Turquoise velvet blazer George, similar color here 

The other day I was reading Lydia's blog and she asked if you'd buy multiples of something, in my case the answer is yes. 
Today's velvet blazer is one of these examples. When I saw this beauty years ago in purple and turquoise I had to have them both. When would I ever come across a velvet blazer like this ? The purple was a size 8 and the turquoise a size 4. Since the size 8 fit better it got more wear than this turquoise one. In fact this one was last worn in 2012, below is link - and as you can imagine, today I am wearing it for one last time. I hope this blazer finds a marvellous home as its off to the consignment shop. 

Previous wears in 13.01.2010 with jeans and a vintage blouse and then 25.01.2012 with a silk orange blouse.

I like this velvet blazer on you. But I actually don't think I own any multiples. I have a hard time buying the same thing in various colors. Although I almost bought a pair of velvet flats in both burgundy and blue (only ended up getting the burgundy).

Love the velvet blazer, too bad it's not comfortable, because as Jennifer mentioned, it's a great color on you. Also loving that beautiful vintage sequined blouse-hope it's not going to be edited as well!

Hi Lorena!
Such a pity you're giving away this amazing blazer. I love the color on you, and the detail of the buttons. Anyway, I think all clothing has its lifetime and a maximum period of use, and maybe it's just that time of leaving it!

I'm sure you'll find again that kind of piece that you'll want to buy in many different colors and varieties like you did with this blazer.
By the way, thank you so much for your comment!

Best,
Amanda

This is such an amazing blazer - seriously stunning! I can see why you had to pick up two of it. While it's not working for you it's great you're passing it on, anyone would be lucky to have it!

I really like the texture with the sequins and velvet together too :)

I'm definitely guilty of buying multiples of things - if it's something I've worn and enjoyed when I buy an extra one I usually end up loving both. If I buy both at the same time they don't often get as much wear as I think they will and so don't both stay in my wardrobe long!

Hope you are having a lovely week so far :)

Such a pretty colour! I do love a bit of velvet. There must be an even more perfect velvet jacket out there somewhere, waiting for you...

I so rarely buy duplicates, but I am guilty of overbuying certain things, and velvet blazers (along with leather skirts, black skirts, and red boots) are one of them. I love this turquoise colour - it's great on you - but if it doesn't fit, someone else will LOVE it.

I love velvet blazers. I have a black and a grey one. Love the buttons on yours. It will find a great home.
