Blue Velvet + Fall Musings

After getting my hands on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog over the weekend, I can’t wait for Fall!  I want velvet, leather, and booties galore!

Exhibit A: my Instagram feed, documenting my obsession with every boot in the catalog, including a very sanzzy pair of blue boots.

I know that we’re right at the helm of Summer and that all common fashion rules detail a clear no velvet after Spring policy, but I’ve never really been one to stay between the lines, so why should I start now? Plus, I really really want blue velvet booties (and sandals, and loafers, and pumps), like yesterday, though perhaps I’ll wear them in the Fall.  And most are on sale now.  Thank you, Summer!

A few fun options (as you can see, my list is long):

Gucci Ankle Strap Velvet Sandal

Loeffler Randall Natane lace-up stiletto

Giuseppe Zanotti Velvet Smoking Flat Loafer

Christian Louboutin ‘Party’ Shoe

Miu Miu Velvet Bow Ballet Flats

ASOS Amos Chelsea Velvet Ankle Boots

Topshop Velvet Ankle Boot

Miu Miu Embroidered velvet leather loafers

    Ok, I definitely need something in blue velvet now. The blue velvet is just gorgeous! Where I live, summer is non-existant so I would probably wear velvet now.
