As the Thanksgiving kick-off is now behind us, the holidays are rapidly approaching, which, depending on the type of person you are, either stresses you out OR you start singing. Personally, I love to entertain, so the holiday season gives me an excuse to fill our home with family and friends.

Ahhh, and what to wear... Well, this season it's ALL about velvet, so I treated myself to a few new pieces. I'll rotate my black, three-quarter sleeve blouse with of-the-moment cropped, flared jeans, and Aquazzura Sexy Thing heels (really, tha's what they're called) for the more casual, yet festive evenings. And for dressier occasions, I'll pair the sleek pair of black velvet trousers with an ivory, silk, ruffled blouse, and slip on the same Sexy Thing heels. Add some jewelry and a smoky eye and I'm ready to go.

That being said, back to the fabric du jour... I must tell you about our Interlude Home velvets. Fashion Inspired Living couldn't play better this season than with velvet. Wear it, sit on it, and touch it. We predicted that this trend, which is fashionable and modern, yet classic, would play oh so well with home décor. Dress up any room with the sophistication and spot-on style that is velvet... and mixed with acrylic, is so, so chic.
