We recently saw Nicole Kidman in a pink velvet dress, and Gabrielle Union in red velvet pants that worked surprisingly well on her. It made me realize we’ve encountered quite a bit of that textile in 2017, so: I compiled a sampling and, where possible, found approximations online for those of who might be intrigued but don’t want to pay designer prices (although sometimes it’s fun just to SEE the designer price because WHAT). Then I tossed other stuff that you might like into the widget below:

It’s mostly jackets, shoes, and a couple dresses. The velvet pants I found all seemed very… stretchy, so I steered clear. I didn’t think you’d mind. Having said that, if Gabs’s Stella McCartney pants were your jam, Farfetch has two pairs left. (I also write Fatfetch at first, which is a VERY different enterprise altogether.) The widget filled up before I could add a baseball cap¬†and some Sole Society velvet loafers that keep popping up on my Facebook feed, also available in silver leather. Enjoy! (If the widget isn’t showing up for you, just refresh ye olde browser.)
