Wednesday Wish List: Sweet Velvet from Zaful

I am sure you all know by now that among my many sartorial obsessions, velvet ranks quite high on the list. I was a huge fan of velvet when it was trending back in the 90’s during my high school and college years. And I have remained a lover of all things velvet ever since. As trends wax and wane through the years, there are some that we grab onto in the moment and then upon looking back on them years later, we ask ourselves, “Why? Why in the world was that atrocity a trend? And why on earth was I so willing to embrace it?” You know the trends to which I refer.

But velvet. Velvet has a different story. Velvet is a trend that possesses a dignity and a quality not possessed by other fads. Velvet has staying power even when it quietly fades out of fashion. There are those of us who will cling with endearing love to its plush fibers, its everlasting softness, its rich hues, and its supple aura as designers and trendsetters toss it onto a heap of forgotten frivolities. For me, if it is velvet, I must have it. And I would never dream of discarding such pretty things onto a pile of obsolete garments. I am a lover of sweet velvet straight to my core.

I have always had velvet pieces on rotation in my wardrobe. But during times when velvet has lost its status as the next fabulous thing, the luxurious fabric was hard to come by in the world of fashion. How I did a dance of joy when you started to see velvet everywhere…on everything. Dresses, pants, skirts, and scarves. Shoes and boots. Gloves and hats. Blazers and coats. If you want to try the velvet trend, you can pretty much find it anywhere. Now some may say it’s too much. But is there really such a thing as too much velvet? To that, I say, “Hell, no. Give me all the velvet things.”

  6. All of the velvet things! I love any tops that have velvet, so fun to dress up or down! Great picks!

  7. Velvets are lovely and pretty. Their colors are vibrant and their textures are plush and soft! I can understand the love and honestly I don’t know why something so beautiful in the eye and the sense of touch should ever be tossed out or forgotten in the back of our closets. It should always stay up front. 😀
