velvet: the best material on earth

yes i have a thing for shiny, furry feeling material.
Velvet is my favorite of them all.
even though this velvet body suit from H&M is more for warmer weather with the heat wave earlier this week in NYC and my fav vintage cardigan..I made it work. lol

Velvet Bodysuit: American Apparel see it worn differently HERE
Skirt: American Apparel
Cardigan: Vintage from Finderz Keeperz Vintage Boutique
Boots: Vera Wang Lavender see my boot collection HERE
Purse: Vintage Coach
Even though it’s colder I just can’t bring myself to cover up EVERY piece of skin.
 I read once that Anna Wintour requires her interviewees to NEVER WEAR pantyhose even in the dead of winter with a skirt or dress. It kind of reminded me of the Sex and the City movie when the girls go to fashion week and even though there is snow and ice on the ground Carrie has on a skirt with no stockings but cute little booties with socks.
I dont mind showing a little calf or ankle…as long as the rest of me is covered up.
what do you all think about the stocking no stocking debate in the winter?

    I love velvet esp, that color. Anna Wintour must have lost her mind. How does she feel about tights at least?

    Are you kidding – velvet is one of the best materials to layer with in winter! So don’t you dare put that away come colder weather 😉
    I have got to agree with Ms Wintour haha, I prefer thigh-high socks (which I’ve been wearing like a beast lately, everryyy day!). But IF done right, stockings can work.

    Just loving all the different textures in this outfit. Anna Wintour could go screw herself for all I care. It’s freaking cold out, I’m covering my gams. This ain’t the movies!! Besides, the right pantyhose with the right outfit is damn sexy!

    I agree with Amy- Ann Wintour must think everyone goes straight from the house to the personal driver. Commuters need stockings to stay warm out there -_- Velvet rocks
