the velour blouson

For the longest time, I could not stand velour. It looked old, bad and just plain ugly. Maybe it was also a result of seeing people wearing it as an entire look from head to toe, aka the Juicy Couture. I think it was just too much for me to handle.


But, my opinion has slightly changed when I saw some valour blousons at American Apparel. I tried one in moss green and it looked just great with my black jeans. I like that odd shine valour has, and it also reminded me of the spring Prada collection as in those jeweled satins. Although, I am still not sure if I am going to purchase one soon, I liked the one in the look above.

Veronique Branquinho. Fall 2007. Look 26.

some of us at savvy really love this look, and have loved it since growing up in it in the 80's-but clearly not in the naff juicy couture way! high five, lots about veronique branquinho's collection stood out this year.
