Velvet in Warm Weather? Why not?

Hi loves! I'll be honest, when I think of velvet I think Winter, Holiday Season, to be more specific. I remember a green off-the-shoulder dress that my mother wore for a Christmas party in New York, back in the 80's, which I was obsessed with. I would go into her closet, and lean against the wall and spend the longest time just running my hands over it. I loved the feel, the warmth, and the color. It was my favorite piece in her closet, after the mink coat, for which I later on would come to lecture her. Recently, I went to shop at one of my favorite online shops, who houses a showroom out of San Antonio, Chic'tique and found these gorgeous velvet crop flared pants. It was the last pair, and I hesitated. It was the beginning of Spring and I thought "Well, I love them, but won't be able to wear them until next Winter!", Michelle of Chic'tique simply told me that we don't always need to follow the fashion rules. I'm not one to follow the rules, myself! The fit was perfect, so I got them. I've worn these babies so many times, they've become a staple in my closet this Spring. These particular pants aren't super warm and heavy, so they've worked for me so far. I paired them with a top from her latest Spring line and velvet strappy sandals. I love this combo! My advice, have fun with non-traditional textures and colors, even in the warmer weather. Fashion is made to have fun, and express your creativity! 

Hola amores! Les voy a ser honesta, cuando pienso en la gamuza, me viene a la mente el invierno, Navidad para ser exacta. Recuerdo un traje verde, de hombros expuestos que mi madre se puso para una fiesta de Navidad en Nueva York en los años 80s, por el cual me moría. Yo entraba a su closet, me apoyaba de la pared y le pasaba la mano por un buen rato. Me encantaba como se sentía, el calentito y el color del traje. Era mi pieza favorita de ella, luego de el abrigo de visón (mink), por el cual luego le dí mi opinión sobre el uso de piel animal como un lujo, jeje. Recientemente, fui a visitar el showroom de una de mis tiendas en línea favoritas, Chic'tique y encontré un par de pantalones en gamuza. Era el último par y pensé "Bueno, me encantan, pero no me los voy a poder poner hasta el próximo Invierno!". Y, Michelle de Chic'tique simplemente me dijo que no hay que seguir todas las reglas de la moda. Yo no soy muy de seguir las reglas y el pantalón me quedó perfecto, así que me lo compré. Me los he puesto tantas veces, que ya está en mi rotación regular de Primavera. Estos son lo suficientes liviano que me los puedo poner y no me matan de calor. Los compré en conjunto con una blusa de su colección de Primavera y conseguí estos zapatos de gamuza también. Me ha encantado esta combinación! Mi consejo es que se divertan esta temporada con diferentes texturas y colores no tradicionales. La moda es para divertirse y expresar tu creatividad!
