(Faux) Leather, Leather, and more Leather

Velvet seriously makes some of the best basics around. For fall, they've added a TON of "leather" pieces to their lineup, taking these basics to a whole new level (very va-va-voom!!!). Here's a look at a few of my favorite pieces thus far...

"Leticia Pant" in Black

"Zaire Top" in Black

"Marjory Dress" in Heather/Black

Combining faux leather detailing with Velvet's amazing jersey fabrics makes these pieces uber comfortable, functional, and it!

Paige's Pick: Jackets

As much as I love summer and everything that comes along with it, there's one season that I absolutely adore for clothes: Autumn. I LOVE scarves, jackets, boots, and all the colors associated with fall. As the weeks progress, fall has slowly started to take over our store (don't worry, summer's not over, fashions just always  way ahead!). We've received some fabulous jackets guaranteed to take you from fall through winter. This week, I've decided to do a pick based on my three favorite jackets, jackets we've received over the past few days.


So, I'm in LOVE with Line's "Blossom" jacket in Khaki and Grey. I think it's the perfect fall coat; the colors, print, and warmth all make this jacket a must have for fall. I kept the rest of the outfit fairly simple, as the coat speaks for itself. I used Velvet's "Maria" tank in Beige and AG's new "Middi Legging" in Raven. Along with jackets, I love a giant scarf paired with just about anything; I chose a Chan Luu striped White and Grey scarf to top off this look. For finishing touches, I used Ash's "Bowie Nappa Wax" wedge sneakers and Rebecca Minkoff's "Skinny Mac," both in Black. 

My next outfit is my favorite of the three. This look is SO comfy, cool, and casual; the three C's that comprise most, if not all, of my outfits! This entire ensemble is based around Vince's "Leather Sleeve Drape Jacket" in Black. I paired this with Joie's "Malena B" sweater in Heather Grey, and 7FAM's "Mid Rise Roxanne" jeans in Slim Illusion. For added edge, I used the Ash "Bowie Nappa Wax" wedge sneakers in Black. I decided to keep the bag simple and used Rebecca Minkoff's Black "Mac Skinny." Such a cool and fabulous look!


The final outfit is by far the most unique of the three, and I love it! I started with Doma's new "Motto Jacket With Double Lip Pockets" in Tiza/Black and paired it with 7FAM's "Skinny" in Majestic. To tie in the purple of the pants, and the color block of the leather jacket, I used one of Chan Luu's new floral pattern scarves. To add a final pop of color, I added Rebecca Minkoff's "Skylar Mini" in Sunny. For shoes, I used my old favorites, Ash's "Dune" booties in Black.

What's that saying again?!? A girl can NEVER have too many I like that!!!
