  1. I saw this cute black velvet coat yesterday at a consignment shop. It was above the knee length. It fit me nicely and looked cute. Price was very reasonable. I don't have much use for eveniong wear; I considered getting it to wear with jeans but decided not get it because it had shorter sleeves (just below elbow) so it wouldn't really give you much warmth for outdoor wear...
    Now I'm thinking should I go get it?
    suggestions?
     
  2. Well, I see you live in San Diego so the weather may not be an issue. Do you dress up a lot for work? Without seeing a pic, it sounds almost "Mad Men/60's era/Jackie O style. I would probably pair it with a dark, high waist pencil skirt, short sleeve dress short/blouse, high heels, a multi strand or super chunky pearl necklace (a modern twist on a classic) and a structured (probably framed) handbag.
     
  3. ^^Also, I have seen a lot of knee length coats w/ shorter sleeves which are worn over some type of dress attire and belted (over the coat). I think it looks really chic.
     
  4. jeans, white buttoned down shirt, i would buy it!
