If you celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas! I am currently lying in bed, binge listening to my favorite podcast, Small Town Murder drinking hot chocolate. I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas and if you’re like my family and celebrate Christmas Eve, also known as Noche Buena, Merry Christmas and Happy Recovery day 🙂 . On my last blog post, I mentioned that I was in search for the perfect pair of velvet trousers. I found those velvet trousers this weekend at Goodwill. I now have the perfect velvet suit under $10.00!
I had been wanting a velvet suit since the Altuzarra for Target collection, released in 2014, which I was unable to purchase because it sold out. Since then, I had looked around for something similar and once I realized how expensive velvet suits are, I decided to purchase the pieces separately. I figured this was going to be a bit difficult because there are different types of velvet fabrics. I purchased the blazer first at my local Goodwill and after trying on several velvet trousers found the perfect pair at Goodwill as well. The blazer and the trousers were both $4.00 each ( insert sunglass emoji). Once I had my matching pieces together, I knew I wanted a sexy and sophisticated look. The two pieces of fabrics that evoke sexy and sophistication when paired together is lace and velvet. While lace can definitely be described as innocent and sweet, once it’s paired with velvet, it takes on a whole different meaning. Its like drinking a blooming champagne cocktail on cool summer night. I wanted this outfit to be all about the velvet suit and lace bodysuit to I kept the accessories to a bare minimum. I wore a pair of Steve Madden velvet snake print heels because snake print and hot pink are sexy, a long gold rope necklace and pink lip to match.
