Hey, everyone! It’s Throwback Thursday here on the blog today (the title of this post is a play on #tbt)! Velvet is a huge trend in 2016, but this trend infiltrated my wardrobe three years ago during my senior year of high school. I’ve held onto most of my velvet pieces throughout college, including this velvet dress:

During NYFW, I received a generous gift from Tibi, and decided to put it towards this gorgeous velvet turtleneck. The color is so vibrant, and the quality of the velvet is unparalleled. I’m obsessed!
So, how exactly does 2016 Emily style velvet pieces? I styled my turtleneck with my black skater skirt and high knee socks. As another homage to my senior year days, I wore my creeper heels with this look (2013 Emily was constantly sporting TUK creepers at school). My style hasn’t changed too dramatically since senior year, and this look serves to converge and define my past and present aesthetics .
