Mad about velvet

Helsinki, 4 degrees


The sky was a sparkling succession of black diamonds on black velvet made crystal clear by the blackout.

During the chillier seasons, autumn & winter, I start to crave soft textures like velvet. I first mentioned my fondness of velvet on the blog back in 2008 & 2011, see the blog posts here and here. In 2012, I started to create my favorite look, the so called urban cowgirl look that I've mentioned many times on the blog. In the beginning, this look was completed by a pair of velvet pants. This fall, my look is this: the pink duster jacket / trench coat & scarf I introduced in this earlier blog post + a newfound velvet baseball cap. It's the first time I've put on a baseball cap since junior high school and I can't get enough of it!

Viileiden kausien aikaan, eli syksyisin ja talvisin, alan himoitsemaan pehmeitä tekstuureja, kuten samettia. Mainitsin samettikiintymykseni ensimmäisen kerran blogin puolella vuosina 2008 & 2011, löydät blogikirjoitukset täältä ja täältä. Vuonna 2012 aloin luomaan suosikki-ilmettäni, jota kutsun kaupunkilaislehmitytöksi. Silloin ilmeen täydensivät samettihousut. Tänä syksynä suosikkiasukokonaisuuteni näyttää tältä: se koostuu vaaleanpunaisesta duster- / trenssi -takista & huivista, jotka esittelin tässä aikaisemmassa blogikirjoituksessa + uudesta samettilippiksestä. En ole käyttänyt lippistä sitten yläasteen, mutta nyt en saa siitä tarpeekseni!

 
What is your relationship with velvet? Can you go wrong by wearing this soft texture in autumn & winter? 
 
Mikä on suhteesi samettiin? Mikä voi mennä pieleen syys- ja talvipukeutumisessa tämän pehmeän tekstuurin kanssa?

  2. I love velvet since I was 8 years old, and I don't know why fashion industry is now saying it's a trend - it never stopped! But thanks for that we now have more options of items to buy this year :) I liked your selection and I never saw a velvet baseball cap, so nice! Hope you have a very nice weekend!

  5. I think I have no velvet pieces in my wardrobe... I used to have when I was little but if I remember correctly I didn't like velvet very much. even today it doesn't speak to me. I'm not saying it can't be beautiful but I guess it's just not my thing. but your cap looks cute! and so does the jacket. I like the colours.
