Velvet is the perfect choice, the fabric itself brings out a glory needed in such hard times the world is facing. The richness, the deep colors and the dark romance is represented in one trend only. Dare to try it out? I started by purchasing a pair of velvet black slippers, next item on my list would be a velvet blazer- as a huge fan of blazers owning one is urgent enough.

Carven’s red dress took my breath away along of course with Ralph Lauren’s suits. But I already mentioned it above…
