A TOUCH OF VELVET | OOTD by EUREKA CALHOUN

Happy Friday!  We made it through another week!!  Styling your wardrobe in Oklahoma City during the winter is nothing but a game of roulette.  I sometimes miss the good ole days when the weather was consistent with the time of year because it made life a little simpler. Here in OKC the weather is consistently unpredictable, and forces me to leave behind my style logic.  So instead of grabbing my warmest trench coat and sweater combo I’m forced to think about the possibility of the weather changing from 30 degrees to 80 by the afternoon.....That’s my life right now!!!  Fall and winter is my favorite season and I haven’t scratched the surface of displaying some of my favorite go-to pieces because of the warmer temperatures.  But, I decided to throw away the weather man's predictions and style my outfit based on the season. Go me!!!  

Velvet is one of my favorite materials this season, for obvious reasons.  It is a fall/winter style must have. From boots, tops, and dresses this 90's trend is back and hitting the mark. With my jammed packed schedule, I rely on tried-and-true pieces that will not have me stressed out.  My blue velvet Report booties were the perfect choice for the day!  I picked up this colorful faux fur vest and beanie hat during one of my “ONLY PURCHASE ON SALE”  shopping excursions at Dillard's and Nordstrom Rack.  The vest is soft and super comfortable, but at the same time feminine with a hint of nostalgia. My stable leather pants and velvet booties are always the perfect statement when I want to look chic with minimum effort.  Then I decided to reach back to quintessential Eureka and pile on all the accessories.  I paired the look with my favorite fingerless motorcycle leather gloves and Badgley Mischka bag with rabbit tail in tow. To maximize the look, I also added my favorite Prada sunnies and beloved "Art" belt!

CLOSET TREASURES| OOTD by EUREKA CALHOUN

Hi guys! Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going great so far.  Given that I’m a stylist and fashion enthusiast, I’m constantly inspired by everything and everyone.  The fashion houses, personal street style gurus, or the everyday stylish guy/gal deposit into my fashion bank account daily.  Recreating style inspirations with the Velvet Lope touch (of course) can be a gift and curse. Spending money on expendable clothes with no real value doesn’t feed my spirit animal anymore.  The gift of becoming older and wiser will cause oneself to reevaluate what’s important.  

My focus is to pursue what feeds my spirit like saving, creating memories with family/friends and traveling the world to name a few. Make no mistake I will still invest in pieces that speak to me when the fashion gods shine on a particular item......... only makes logical sense, right? But one of my personal goals this year is to choose well, buy less and shop the TREASURES already in my CLOSET. The fact I have had all the pieces in this post except for the shoes for over a year (the gloves over 6 yrs, smh) and they're just now making an appearance confirms I'm finally on the right track!

Are you like me and find you need to limit your shopping?  What are your closet goals for the year......buy less, get organized, etc?  

Until next time,
