Free People Slouchy Velvet Blazer

Via Free People blog, BLDG 25

As an admitted shopping addict, I browse the internet and magazines often and make note of things I can’t afford, acting as though I can.  These are the latest treasures I’ve found.  If you have the money, please buy them so I can live vicariously through you.

First is the Slouchy Velvet Blazer from Free People.  Who would have thought velvet would make such a stylish comeback? Certainly not me, but this tailored rust and indigo colored beauty with a pleated elastic back goes against all odds.  You can wear it with virtually anything.  Pair it with a dress and heels for a night out, or a t-shirt and jeans for everyday wear.  We all know how much I love jackets.

Betwixt Booties from Anthropoligie


Next are the Betwixt Booties by Farylrobin sold at Anthropologie.  The taupe booties have a 3″ leather heel – the perfect height for any occasion.  Not too high to wear to work or even the grocery store, but high enough to wear for a night out.  In almost every way they resemble the classic bootie: ankle-height, buckle, rounded toe.  However, the cut-out side is what makes these shoes extra special and a season must-have.  Your feet can go naked, you can dress them up in sheer or colorful stockings and tights, or you can be a little daring and try out some lace or sparkle socks like these from American Apparel.

Asos Chino Pants


Finally (although there are probably a million other things I could list) are the Chino Pants from Asos.  I had never heard of this company until the October issue of In Style magazine which featured a pair of pants from Asos.  After looking into them a bit further, I must say they have one of the best pant selections I have ever seen.  Move over Zara.  These boyfriend-cut trousers in “mushroom” color have folded pleats and button tab belt loops to give them a feminine touch.  Again, these versatile pants can be worn in any season, day or night.  And the best part – they’re totally affordable.

Hey, look at that! I’ve created an outfit.
