Fall 2012 Trend: Velvet Shoes & Bags

November 15, 2012 • Blahnik Tonic, Fashion Blog, Handbags, Trends

I often think of suede when it comes to shoes and bags, but I have to admit I never really gave velvet much thought until I saw this year’s hot trend. Velvet shoes & bags are really catching my eye. Possibly because the colors are so deep and rich…that is if you stay away from black and focus on the jewel-tones. Then again, when the black is offset by another fabric or sparkles, even that (non)color looks amazing. OK, let’s just say I am swooning for all things velvet. The beauty is you don’t just have to think ‘holidays’ when it comes to velvet anymore. Just think winter. Here are 10 velvet shoes & bags worth considering:
