Inspired by velvet

I have a purple vintage dress.

Vintage dress - Fergalicious beige pumps 
As most things in my closet,
it's not worn much.


Not only do I forget about its existence but, since it is 
body hugging, sometimes it doesn't fit.


However, these days it fits - so I thought I'd wear it.


As one of my main goals in the blog is to wear things differently every time,
I chose to add something to it...  
Another long forgotten item from my closet: 
a purple velvet jacket.


I was inspired after seeing SJP wear her velvet jacket with a dress.
I found this on People Style Watch's December 2013 - January 2013 issue.
Something I had never done before - at least not that I can remember.


SO I paired these two together and I think they actually worked.


I tend to pair velvet jackets with jeans or dress trousers...

George purple velvet jacket - Arena Milano grey bag

So, this was a newbie for me.
How about you ?
How do you wear your velvet jackets ?
