The man treated me to a black velvet suit and this lovely green blouse for my birthday.

Velvet is probably my favorite fabric. I just find it so sensual and sexy.
I remember seeing velvet suits by Tom Ford for Gucci in a magazine back in 1996. I was a college student who was just starting to get out of her grunge phase.
I was so enamored with the Gucci suits. I loved the strong look of the women walking down the runway in this traditionally masculine look.

A velvet suit is so perfect for more formal occasions. I would definitely wear the full suit for a work holiday party. I would also wear with the suit with a slinky top for a special date night.
Would you wear a velvet suit?
