Vintage and Velvet

You may remember my love for classics, regarding tweed. Season after season with every granted year, I can always depend on my collection of coats and jackets. This vintage blazer is one of my favourites and has been worn many times. 

In my opinion, traditional pieces like these are staple items in my wardrobe. Blazers, for me are the next of kin to my Little Black Dress. They’re much like what a white dress shirt is for a man. They are essentials and everyone needs one.

I wore this for a work presentation and a small jaunt to a holiday theatre play for charity. Then, I changed shoes. To offset my packed agenda, I took a moment to take a style shot. As if being barefaced with bone-chilling breezes weren't enough to begin the day, of course I thought a stroke of rouge lips and a ribbon retro hat was well-suited and a great finishing touch.
It’s a bit amusing—when I recently analysed my wardrobe, I became conscious of the fact that I have very little velvet. Depending on the style of garment, I actually love velvet and thought that I had more of it! However, the true verdict was that aside from a vintage blazer, a flocked scarf and skirt, there weren't too many other velvet items or the likes of it in my closets. But, then I found this brooch … perhaps I spoke too soon!

What’s one of your favourite classic pieces of clothing? Have you ever worn velvet?

The goods: Tweed blazer-Vintage, Contrast collar blouse, Velvet skirt, and Kisslock Handbag in Brown-c/o Oasap, Hosiery-Givenchy, Velvet brooch-DIY,  hat, Earrings-Target, Boots-Vintage.

  9. You look totally adorable Madison. Love the tweed blazer and the velvet skirt. Now that I think about it I have to say that I don't own enough velvet pieces myself. Although I love velvet. I own a pair of oversized pants and nothing more. Will keep my eyes open. Have a fabulous start of the week!!

    That blazer is really great...and I'm also a bit surprised that I don't own more velvet pieces, I really do love the material.

  16. Hi Madison! Love velvet too and you just made me think that I didnt own much stuff in velvet as well. Would love to get a skirt as yours, it is very lovely and suits you well. I like how you paired with the tweed blazer, the sweater and the hat, it is a remarkable combo. Happy Monday, have a great week ahead! Kisses! xo

  17. Love your outfit Madison - the hat is just great & love the tweed jacket as well! I pretty much always have a velvet blazer in my wardrobe, although for the last couple of years have not worn it as I've been more into my tuxedo jacket, but hoping it will come back--I love velvet!

    I totally agree. Blazers and coats are much like the go-to white dress shirt. You definitely have more velvet pieces that I have--rockin' it!

    Liebe Madison, Du siehst wieder wunderschön und sehr elegant aus! Deine Looks sind immer sehr toll. Ich mag Samt sehr gerne, aber ich habe nur einen Blazer aus Samt. Aber Dein Input ist gut, ich sollte ihn mal wieder anziehen. Ich trage sehr oft und gerne Blazer, Jacken überhaupt und ich besitze sehr viele davon ;)


    Eine wunderbare Vorweihnachtswoche für Dich!
