The “rules” for cleaning out your closet often say: “If you haven’t worn it in a year, get rid of it.” I say nooooooo, what about my heavy puffer coat (for NYC), bright green rain boots, and velvet shrug? OK, it’s been a year but they’re still among my favorites, and they must stay. Some of our favorite pieces are only worn in a certain season, or for a special occasion, but they’re favorites for a reason – we love them.

And I do love my olive velvet shrug, thrifted in NYC many years ago. It’s so soft and drapey and the color is good for me, even though I am a “cool” skin tone. Today I wore it over a simple black cotton tee, and a checked, ruffled pencil skirt (inspired by Gail of Is This Mutton). Perfect for a late-season Florida chill.
The black beaded necklace was designed by my friend Suzanne Carillo (check out her vintage treasures here). And the boots are old, by Doc Martens, who doesn’t seem to make this style anymore. Here is a similar pair.
Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.
