Buckle up stylish friends, velvet isn’t going anywhere. It’s only getting brighter and more interesting with every passing day. While crushed velvet has been the center of attention for a few months, burn out and printed velvet is quickly taking over the stage. One of my favorite trends at the moment though, velvet and mesh combos.

What is your velvet inspiration?

Crushed Velvet

The velvet trend is one of my favorites this fall! I recently got this Crushed Velvet Swing Dress at Forever 21 for only $12.90 (I actually got it in both colors), and have been loving it! It’s so soft and easy, plus you can style it in so many different ways! It makes a nice addition to my vintage velvet dress collection.

Are you wearing velvet this season? How do you style it?

Velvet 90’s

How are you? I am still stuck in the 90’s. Not sure why, maybe because of all the velvet that reminds me of that decade. This Ragstock dress is no exception, I might even wear it on Valentine’s Day, because why not?

Let’s talk a little about Valentine’s Day, shall we? Here are a few thoughts that I would like to share and tell you how mine is going to pan out a week from Sunday.

  1. It’s a Sunday, so I will get to sleep in, snuggle up with everyone, and by everyone I mean Sam and Mason (our dog).
  2. Drink unbelievable amounts of coffee. On my way home from my late night class yesterday I caught myself thinking that “Wouldn’t it be nice to come home, drink coffee and do homework?”. Yes, my friends think I am weird.
  3. Valentine’s day is always our half-versary (is this even a word?), since we got married on August 14. This is how I actually remember when we got married, because we’ve forgotten our anniversary on a number of occasions.
  4. Sometime around 1 pm Sam and I are going to go get me a cake. I don’t like the sweet thick icing cakes, so we are going to go to Lund’s & Biyearly’s and I am going to pick out something completely ridiculous. Last year it was a Butterfinger cake. And the year before it was a chocolate cake with (I swear) 2 lbs of raspberries on top! Man I love my cake. We are going to spend the next 2 weeks trying to consume the cake. It will probably dry up and I will have to throw away at least a quarter.
  5. Then I am going to realize I have homework to do, and will spend the rest of my day working on some group project that involves creating a unique idea and implementing it without spending any amount of money.

And this is how we do Valentine’s day Hutson style! Happy Thursday friends!

PS. Romance is not dead, maybe…

Velvet, Vintage, Lingerie

I have always wanted to try the lingerie as outerwear trend. So when putting an outfit together for the Minneapolis Blogger Brunch, I finally got it. I’ve had a slip that went with one of my Anthropologie dresses, and every time I put it on, I feel so feminine, so flowy, so sexy… So I simply paired it with my vintage pleated cobalt blue skirt, and a velvet thrifted blazer from Express. I added my “Being Zhenya” necklace and a sapphire ring from Berricle, and was ready to brunch!

My 50 cents Cape

Last week when I was at the library, I decided to stop by the “sewing/fashion” section and browse around! I was able to score some amazing books (great for beginners and more advanced seamstresses or DIYers like me 🙂 )

As you may have guessed, that’s why I went thrifting for fabric last Saturday! (Haul post here)

My first project came from this book:

2012-12-04 22.01.25

 

There are a total of 10 different projects in this book, and each one of these projects has 8 variations! It’s a very inspiring book, even if you are not looking for any inspiration! Plus the step by step instructions are so easy to follow, that t makes sewing and designing  a lot more fun!

I chose this cape as my first project. And my 50 cents of wool were perfect for it!

The amount of fabric was just right! I spent about 3 hours on Sunday night working on this:

I couldn’t be more proud! But it’s not over yet! I have some nice velvet that I want to use to decorate the cape, but I want to ask your opinion, so please take a minute and vote:

I hope you are as in the mood for the new Hobbit or a re-run of The Lord of the Rings as I am 😉
