I love the brocade trend for fall. Although elegant, it is also kind of dark and mysterious which seems to be a theme for me this year. Maybe turning 40 has me thinking that the time for youthful innocence is gone. Bye bye Snow White, hello Maleficent! (minus the majorly evil stuff) Anyway, I love it and will be working it in to my wardrobe for sure. I am super bummed that a vintage Givenchy copper brocade jacket from Pretty People didn't make it home with me today- only because it was too big- but I'll be on the lookout for something else like it. Check out these black brocade pants by Elizabeth and James. I like them with a peplum top (even one that is totally matchy!) but I think it would also look great with a leather tee.
