Week of Velvet: Tuesday

 

When it comes to this velvet trend? I am ALL IN.

The week of velvet continues with a new clutch that I fell in love with. This is the perfect way to dip your toes into the velvet pool if you are feeling timid. Best news ever? The clutch comes in a bunch of pretty colors to connect with your color wheel. 

 

TUESDAY=Anthropologie Foldover Clutch

When I spotted this clutch in the Anthro in Ann Arbor, I really gravitated to the color. Warning, random tangent coming: I think that bright red lipstick is such a beautiful look on ANY woman. I know it's bold, but it's such a striking look. All that to say, this reminded me of rocking that shade just in the form of a bag. It's such a great piece to add to an outfit that needs some life. However if Wizard of Oz style red isn't your thing, it also comes in navy, purpley-blush, camel, and a bright turquoise.

For my outfit: I added the clutch to a long satin shirt dress (over leggings), neck scarf, and (alertthepress), a hat. Add in aforementioned bright red lips and I was ready for the day.

  • DRESS UP: I think this would be such a statement with a all-black outfit: overcoat, dress, tights, heeled booties and then this little red guy. Also, the red lip.
     
  • DRESS DOWN: Winter white pants, sky blue and white stripe shirt (preferably with some kind of ruffle detail), neck scarf, and the bag. Dunzo.

Velvet on, dear friends.
