Purple Velvet Jacket

I've had this velvet, eggplant jacket in my closet for years, and just haven't ever gotten around to wearing it. You'd think I'd find a million ways to style such a versatile piece, right? Of course! And yet I never seemed to reach for it. Finally, in a closet clean out, it went on top of the Give Away Pile. Which of course wasn't actually given away, but continued to sit in my closet...until one morning last week, when I wanted a jacket to pair with this hunter green leather skirt. VoilĂ ! Now, I can't imagine why it took me so long to wear this jacket. 

(Note to Self: Time to REALLY give away the Give Away Pile.)

Do you have any items in your closet you don't seem to wear? What's holding you back?

    1. Thanks! I lusted after this necklace for the longest time and finally picked it up with my rewards for hosting a Stella and Dot party :)

  2. I love the combo of the purple and green and the mix of textures.
