Omiru Poll Results: Velvet Jackets are In

Omiru Poll Result: Velvet Jackets are In

Theory Bobby Adore Velvet BlazerWe asked: Are Velvet Jackets In or Out?

You said:  Pull one on for the holiday party.  58% are all over Velvet Jackets. 18% and 26%, respectively, believe they’re On the Way
Out and Out.

Omiru’s take:
Velvet Jackets are an easy way to take your look from standard to snappy.  We’re fans of the tuxedo look in particular–updated for this season with a cropped sleeve and snug fit (pictured).  Wear your Velvet blazer with tuxedo pants, trousers…or even denim.

Next Question: Green is a classic holiday color…and perhaps the Next Big Thing.  Tell us, is The Color Green In, or is it Out?  Cast your
vote on the sidebar!

Tribal Makeup Bag

Tribal Makeup Bag The Perfect Gift For: Your Favorite Makeup Artist.

Like so many New Yorkers, Tanja of Sweet T Original prefers dressing in monochromatic black.  But when she designs her bags, she sheds her basic black in favor of bright colors, bold prints, and combinations of contrasting fabrics. 

Tribal tattoos came to mind when Tanja saw this particular Marimekko print.  And because Tanja promised her mother that she wouldn’t get any more tattoos, she decided to make herself a bag that reminded her of them. 

Did you know?  Tanja has “New York” tattooed on her left shoulder.  At least, she hopes that’s what it says, since she can’t read Chinese!

$25 at Sweet T Original.

Darling Mummy Minivan Tee

Darling Mummy Minivan Tee Darling Mummy’s minivan tee was inspired by a steady flow of phone calls from the designers’ gorgeous mommy friends lamenting the purchase of a minivan.  Explained the designers: "We designed "too sexy" for these darling friends, as a subtle rebellion to what seems to be coming a parental rite of passage."

The designers themselves, however, don’t drive minivans. Sherri Aynn Collins zips around on her Vespa  before meeting her girls at the bus stop while Alisa Christensen navigates Atlanta traffic in a German sports car (fitted with a car seat of course!).

$30 at Darling Mummy.
