She wore blue velvet

"Bluer than velvet was the night-
softer than satin was the light".

One of my most favourite wardrobe pieces is this beautiful, rich velvet blue jacket. I bought it a few years ago from a vintage shop in Camden where I was told that being made in '73, it had lived through the disco days! The jacket smartens up any outfit with velvet being the ultimate symbol of luxury. I love to wear it with black jeans or trousers and a crisp white shirt. It goes beautifully with my platinum bowery bag and leather ankle boots, or for more glam- metallic silver loafers. 
Velvet jackets are definatley having a moment right now- there are some beautiful ones in Mango and Zara (don't rule out mens!). However for a unique one-off piece at a fraction of the price, I would definitely recommend digging through vintage!
