As usual, when we do a Trying Out a Trend post, we all ask Merrick what’s trending.
And to be fair, I’d seen velvet popping up here and there.
But then, last week, I took my children around to five different major stores and the SINGLE only velvet thing I could find were these pants at LOFT. Where were nice, but not exactly something I’d be able to button for the next five months, sadly.
So I did the next best thing, which was desperately text all of my friends who seemed at all fashion savvy and asked if THEY had any velvet things.
I came up empty-handed there too.
Apparently, velvet wasn’t QUITE trendy enough for me to easily get my hands on (at least not when I was out of time to order something online. . . ).
And then the stars aligned and Camille from Friday We’re in Love who was in the car with us (we were headed up to Scottsdale for a Pinners Conference party) said, “What are you looking for?” and when I told her, she said, “I have a very stretchy velvet dress from Anthropologie. Would that work?”
Yes, yes it would.
I hadn’t worn anything velvet in a LONG time, but it was so delightful and soft and festive that I immediately wanted to go order at least a dozen velvet things. Preferably things that are very stretchy too.
