For the second part of my #OpenForJoy collaboration with Banana Republic, I am really excited to share this video with you. It features one of my favorite pieces from the collection—the fantastic black velvet blazer. I love exploring the versatility of even the most distinctive items and this video is a candid preview of three upcoming posts showcasing the velvet blazer worn around town, for cocktail hour, and to a black tie event. When it comes to style—and life, for that matter—it is always infinitely more rewarding and fulfilling to be open to possibilities, rather than simply seeing things in black and white. Enjoy.
