VaVaVa Velvet for Days! + Giveaway!

Hello Lovely,

Jessica Outfit 1  (16 of 17).jpg

On Friday I shared the beginning of a fun collaboration with Jessica Loera, of Champagne & Shimmer  Lifestyle Blog.  As I wrote the blog last week, I noticed how long my post was already (apparently I am very wordy in my musings... haha), so I decided to split the velvet photoshoot and blog into two posts!

This week I am sharing how Jessica styled her velvet black pants in a completely different way than I did.

Keep reading to see Jessica's style, as well as enter the giveaway for the velvet clutch! 

Jessica's Look:

Jessica was actually the first one to mention us each wearing velvet pants.  She just got these Paige black ones and was dying to wear them!  

As I mentioned in the last post, black velvet is the darkest material, so it will naturally have a slimming effect!  YAY!

Jessica is one busy gal!  Not only does she do freelance work from home, is a full-time mommy, plus she runs her lifestyle blog, and somehow still has time to workout and enjoy life with her family.

With her on-the-go lifestyle, Jess decided to style her velvet pants a little more casually, since she paired it with a burgundy tunic sweater and leopard booties that incorporate a pop of color.

To tie it all together, she added a foldover clutch and the perfect deep burgundy lip color, called Leo from the Kyler Jenner Lip Kit.

I still have yet to try these lip kits, but after seeing how long Jessica's lipstick stayed on, I am definitely going to find some for myself!

 After reading most of Jessica's blog posts, I have realized she loves to stay comfortable while staying cute and functional.  Plus she loves to add a pop of color to her ensembles.  

This entire outfit is super wearable, not only because of stretch factor in the pants, but also the tunic length of the sweater.  The long length not only covers the rear end (making it easy to wear with all types of jeans or pants), but the side slits add an interesting 'WOW' feature.  

Jessica could easily wear this entire outfit from day to night, or even make it appropriate for holiday parties. 

Check out all the pics below, as well as the shopable links at the bottom.
