Smooth as Velvet

Every holiday season I get the itch for a fabric soft and supple; velvet.  Perhaps it is the feeling and sheen of the fabric that reminds of the days of my youth browsing the girls section at Kids R Us (don’t hate).  But seriously, around this time all I want is the familiar feel of velvet.  This year’s particulars?  I would prefer a nice body-con dress, a pair of heels, and maybe a blazer.

In unrelated news, I have a website to share with you. Lyst.com There have been a lot of websites out lately which have attempted to create a better online shopping experience for buyers but this one is my favorite.  You have the chance to follow a number of your favorite designers and friends and tag items that you like, then you will be alerted when those items go on sale!  I always wished for a website like this.  Check out my list: http://www.lyst.com/danielleuniverse/
