Items in my holiday dressy capsule may be worn once a year, so they stick around for a long time. I have 2 velvet T-shirts and 2 pairs of velvet pants (I don’t wear together because I think I’d feel like one of those flannel storyboards for kids), a velvet dress, two sparkly sleeveless dresses and a couple of sparkly tops. This jacket would go with all of them (pic 1). Unfortunately, to come into my price range, it would need to be 90% off. The find is the best option I own, and it isn't very good--it isn't very warm, and is only ok with dressiness.

Pic 2 is the dresses
3 shows just how long I’ve had the velvet paisley pants. Detail of fabric is in comments
4 shows the lower leg of the black velvet pants, which are about as old as the others. I need to figure out something other than a red sweater set to wear them with.
