VELVET UNDER TREE

Dec 5, 2016by tracey Comments

Despite the fact I don’t really feel like it’s Christmastime it is only 19 days away. So it would be time for some shopping suggestions.

Aside, I’m watching CNN as I write this and it really is hard to focus on buying gifts when the world is spinning the way it is.  Though I did manage to ship off several boxes of gifts to California today so they will be there when we go out for the holiday.

OK, enough about me and my feelings and my gifts.
What about those annual suggestions?

I’m feeling velvet. Not at the moment, at the moment I’m typing, but velvet is the fabric of the season. It’s everywhere and if you haven’t noticed, I promise you, you will now.

I have been wearing velvet shoes for years. In fact there is nothing quite like a velvet shoe, if you haven’t tried one, I say go for it. They are now out in every price range.

 

BTW – the little bonbon in the main image is Chanel’s Velvet Boy Wallet On A Chain.

I think these would appeal to a lot of people. Rag and Bone velvet sneakers in my favorite color navy blue. Grab em while you can.

The men's version. OK not exactly. This one has a Ricky Riccardo vibe. It's a lot less expensive than the woman's. You can find it at Macy's. But it would look kind of swell on New Years.

If you can find one let me know. The velvet bag everyone wants. You can't get into Gucci on 5th Ave. thanks to you know who. Well you can go in the side. I digress. Google around you might find one on eBay.
