The Velvet Underground: 5 Glamorous Winter Blankets

October 23, 2013

Whenever I spot velvet, be it as upholstery or a skirt, I replay one of my favorite Seinfeld quotes in my head–as George Costanza once said, “I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable.” Couldn’t agree more. Is there anything more glamorous than velvet? Here, a crop of blankets to drape yourself in this winter:
