Velvet is one of those materials you either hate or love. In the case of fall/winter I LOVE it! Velvet is such a luxurious material to me. I had my first run in with this material at the age of 6. My mother had put me in a dress for Christmas pictures, the entire dress was made of velvet with accents of lace. I just remember feeling like such a princess. This may be the reason why i love this material so much. It brings back happy moments from my childhood. & I'm more than happy to embrace it as a young adult.

Velvet was seen threw out many fall 2012 RTW collections, I'm sure we'll see much more in stores this season.
