Vintage Velvet for V-Day

Perhaps you were all about the Superbowl last weekend, especially Gaga and those commercials. Unfortunately, I got sucked into a marathon series about Anna Nicole Smith. The rags to riches Playboy playmate who married a nearly 90-year-old Houston billionaire as her modeling career took off until her sad end dying in Hollywood, Florida. Yesterday actually marked the 10 year anniversary since her death (time flies). The REELZChannel (never heard of it) had a special airing over the weekend called Anna Nicole Smith: Behind Closed Doorsnarrated by one of  my fave ex-Today co-hosts, Natalie Morales.

Although, it was depressing to see every detail of her life picked apart, literally. From her plastic surgeries, pill addiction, to meeting her first husband at 17 while working at a fried chicken restaurant in Mexia, Texas. Her ultra-glam look did inspire me to try on a vintage velvet suit new to my wardrobe and slap on a little red lipstick for an early V-day date.

Date Night Glam – I love to add modern accessories to vintage outfits like my Michael Kors gold watch, Quay Australia aviators, and Gucci heels. Lipstick is classic Russian Red by MAC Cosmetics.

Vintage Details – I love the drawstring detail on the top of this velvet jumper which is actually two pieces with the pants being high-waisted and flared.

‘Shopping is Fun Again’ – Living in the US again means more vintage shopping and affordable tailoring. This outfit was passed down from Great Aunt and it’s a vintage brand called Koret of California.

V-day Date Night in Velvet – Velvet has been a big trend this winter and perfect for a Valentine’s date. This look is basically head to toe navy blue vintage velvet, but if you want to add accessories like a velvet choker or just a simple velvet tank, check out my recent post in the Dallas Design District.

Thanks for reading and in case you missed the Reelz show, 20/20 this Friday on ABC is also doing its own Anna Nicole Smith special.
