I honestly have no idea what possessed me to buy this emerald green Velvet suit when I went to the Joseph flagship store in London last month. I’m the last person in the world to wear velvet suits. There’s something very Austin Powersy about them hence the velvet phobia. It all changed during a shopping trip one rainy afternoon — I first picked up the jacket and thought to myself, “oh wow, it’s so soft.” Then I asked the sales associate to hand me trousers and I was like “oh wow this is kind of fierce” so I got them both. It makes total sense because I need, ahem, age-appropriate clothes. Home gurl in her (very early) thirties ain’t no spring chicken no more.

Neil Barrett’s fall/winter 2014 menswear collection is definitely one of my favorites this season. I truly love what he does. His well-made clothes are so easy to wear. They’re perfect for days when you want a cool, edgy look that doesn’t require more than two brain cells to put together. I bought his lightning bolt sweater when I went to Milan this September and have worn it many times since.
