Fall on a budget - Velvet Jacket

For the next couple of posts I am going to highlight budget spending.

I will take one aspirational item and find affordable pieces that match up to it's style, fit and chicness, but for a much less hefty price tag.

We are starting with the velvet blazer.

This is a great piece that can carry you from Autumn through Winter. The blazer has a wonderful silhouette. The nipping in at the waist creates curves and a feminine shape, it also plays off the menswear trend that is ever prevalent for fall. It is versatile and luscious. Pair it with a cocktail dress for evening or jeans and boots for the day. I wear mine to work, to walk around the park, to dinner, you name it. Enjoy!
