It was hard to ignore the chill in the air yesterday evening, which made me realize Fall is finally here whether we like it or not. Without any hesitation, I bundled up in my favourite velvet layerings. These key pieces happen to be relatively light on their own, but when worn together they allow for the perfect balance of comfort in temperature. I paired the shiny and patterned velvet pieces in contrast with the flowing silk of these Wilfred bubble shorts. If the afternoon temperatures would have risen, the airy silk of the shorts would have allowed for optimal comfort in breathability.
The velvet items were thrifted from a local Value Village and are now about a year old, surprisingly it’s safe to say I have yet to get bored of them. Velvet is one of my absolute favourite fabrics to wear throughout the Fall and Winter seasons along with wool. The textural aesthetic of the fabric makes for a visual difference in your clothing, and being a woman who loves to wear black… well textures and subtle differences are a very important aspect to my wardrobe.
I’m back to school this week, and have a very busy year ahead of me. This entire year will consist of me working together within a single group, on a particular client we have been granted the opportunity to work closely with. We will be designing a new merchandise line for a certain target market, along with pitching them a complete business and marketing plan. A group will be chosen at the end of the year, upon presenting, as the winner. The company will have the option to carry through with the marketing and business plan. It’s going to be a lot of work and a lot of statistic research, but I’m really looking forward to carrying out one HUGE professional project and presenting it at the end of the year, instead of 8 smaller projects throughout my semesters. It’s a project that will look fantastic in a portfolio.
