There’s something so flattering about black velvet. I think it works on all body types, and the richness in the fabric allows it to hug curves while being thick enough to smooth everything out. It’s a go-to for me this time of year!
I think this outfit would be perfect for a winter wedding, and it’s topped with my favorite accessory this year, my Chanel filigree bag. I had my eye on this bag for several years, but it would immediately sell out whenever inventory was restocked.
For hard-to-get luxury pieces like this, a great source is eBay. They’re the first place I check if I can’t find what I’m looking for at a retailer. Especially if I’m on the hunt for a unique piece from several seasons past!
Over 80% of eBay’s merchandise is actually brand new and available with the “Buy It Now” options, which means if you’re not the type to hover over your laptop in a bidding war, you don’t have to. If you have a few people left on your holiday gifting list, or even if you want to to treat yourself, everything you need for those last minute gifts can be found on eBay.

Have you ever purchased from eBay or better yet, specifically a designer item? My greatest victory was snagging a vintage Burberry trench for under $150. I had it shortened and it’s one of my greatest steals!
