Velvet for Spring?

by 1 March 27, 2013 1 Comment

We love the unexpectedness of velvet for Spring.  Velvet is a fabrication we've traditionally used for fall, but every so often we like to jostle things around a bit and do restrained injections of this luxe pile for warmer months.  The key is in the color and silhouette.   . For Double D Ranch's "MUSIC LIVE" collection, we turned up the velvet colors using fresh turquoises, fun pinks and bright yellows, then embellished with folksy shisha embroidery.  Our "Bingol Velvet" silhouette is loose fitting and pairs perfectly over jeans, cutoffs, or leggings for a look we love!

Digging through our Double D Ranch archives, we found a couple of images of velvet from past spring collections.

We obsess about squash blossoms as much as any gal, but have always wondered how they transformed from Native American adornment to must-have statement piece. Best of all, ours are now ON SALE.
