Don’t you agree: one brilliant jacket can light up your closet. This velvet beauty makes me feel full of energy and extra Visible, in the best way. I have lots of ideas of how I’m going to style it in NYC next week. With full skirts, over a Little Black Dress or full trousers, or with a huge scarf at the neck and belt around the middle.

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.

I’m going a simple route today with my style and letting the jacket sing. I’ve chosen easy flared, high-waisted jeans (similar) and a hot pink tank (sim), with just a glass pendant (sim) for accessorizing. I found this velvet bombshell at the Etsy shop of Suzanne Carillo (full disclosure: she’s a great friend, but I buy from her because her stuff is the bomb – go check it out asap).

  13. Your velvet jacket is awesome. Isn’t it a bit too warm for Florida? It would be perfect for Alaska. Do you have a list where I can sign up for it as hand-me down? LOL. So chic.

  14. You bought the jacket! I fell in love the moment I saw it, but sadly it was just a bit too small for me… It looks absolutely fabulous on you!

  15. That is a fabulous jacket, and deserves to ne made center of attention. But that necklace is really beautiful!

  16. I love a statement ANYTHING and your jacket is no exception. I LOVE Suzanne’s stuff as well, I’m just often not a retro size, unfortunately! If that jacket was my size, I’d be fighting you for it! xx
