I remember the first time I saw “It’s a Wonderful Life”. It was during a hot August afternoon back in my graduate student days. The fact that I was watching a Christmas movie on a day that was 95 degrees in my New York living room didn’t stop me from crying through most of the movie.
Well, Christmas in August is back. I had the opportunity to select an item from the new Fall Collection from Midnight Velvet, a fashion and home decor website and catalogue.
Midnight Velvet was a brand that was new to me, so I checked out their offerings online and in their catalogue. They sell clothing, shoes, accessories, fashion jewelry, even bedspreads and accents for your home that make a statement. Midnight Velvet’s sense of style is bold, confident, and often embellished — right up my alley! Never fear, if you like things to be a little more subtle, they have understated and romantic styles too. In fact, I want the Romantic Poet Top that’s already back ordered till the end of August!
I chose the Gold Waterfall Sweater from the Fall Collection, and I was psyched to receive it. A few days later, this cool zebra striped box arrived.
Now I’m all set for the holidays: Christmas, Hanukah, New Year’s, virtually any holiday party, I’m ready. What I love about this sweater, that’s lightly embellished with gold shimmery sequins, is that I can dress it up with pants or keep it casual with jeans. The soft gold shade goes well with black, brown or even navy or deep purple.
In addition to the color and occasion versatility, I love the draping of the waterfall front. It’s flattering and on trend. The sweater is about coat length in the back on me, but I’m only 5 feet tall. Actually, I was so delighted that the size Small fit me perfectly. On most women, the sweater would be shorter.
Although I’m a summer girl, I am almost excited about the coming cool weather so I can wear my new sweater. It’s lightweight so if the right occasion appears, I won’t wait till the holidays.
I’m so happy with my new Gold Waterfall Sweater from Midnight Velvet!
