Paris Fashion Week SS 2013....Emily

Emily Weiss from Into The Gloss, before Balmain, Paris, September 2012.

Autumn is the time for crackling fires (or at least pretending in front of a heater!), steaming hot chocolate topped with gooey marshmallows, unearthing gloves, beanies and bedsocks from their summer retreat in the wardrobe, bracing country walks followed by long pub lunches....and velvet. Autumn and winter are the time for sumptuous, rich fabrics like Emily's beautiful velvet blazer.

Recreate Emily's look (kind of):

By Malene Birger Malagasia velvet blazer, Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Ombre velvet blazer, Gucci velvet and satin jacket, Bop Basics The Fiance velvet blazer, Aubin &Wills Midgrove satin-trimmed velvet blazer, or Kookai washed velvet jacket

Christian Louboutin Love Me 85 leather and mesh pumps, Elizabeth and James Clark pointed toe pumps, or Jimmy Choo Lennox patent pumps

Stella McCartney Aviator sunglasses, Marc by Marc Jacobs oversized aviator sunglasses, or Topshop Aviator sunglasses


  1. love the jacket

  2. Love her velvet blazer! :) really rich colour too :)

  3. @Clara - me too! I do love velvet (we even have velvet chairs in our house!).

    @fashmongers - agreed!

    @Mica - it is beautiful isn't it. Pity I stuffed up my exposure on both photos! oh well

  4. That red velvet looks amazing as a jacket! Keeping this for inspiration next Autumn.

  5. simply chic!


  6. This look is amazing, so effortlessly chic! It's an art to make something look this good!

  7. Love the bag!
    Does anyone happen to know where this would be from?
