Finally We Are Fallin'

... And we want to get crushed. Like velvet, that is. 

Happy news now! The temperatures are finally falling, and I'm so ready to bust out all my knits and boots and live in them for the rest of the year. 

Even though here in California we don't experience actual "Fall" or "Winter" (imagine the air quotes), I love me some luxurious textures and supreme layering as much as any cool weather girl. 

That's why I decided to share with you -my Bon Vivants- my exclusive picks from Zara's new Deep Velvet Collection. They're full of drama and texture, perfect for layering and feeling like a 14th Century Italian noble. 

You can easily shop my picks by clicking the product you like and BAM! A whole lotta of satisfaction in velvet form.

Let the shopping games begin!
