VELVET DREAMS


I'M LITERALLY ALL OVER VELVET STYLE WISE AT THE MOMENT, ESPECIALLY WITH OUR SEASONAL WINTER CHILL CREEPING IN ON US, HERE IN LONDON. JUST A LOVELY SNUG ALTERNATIVE FABRIC THAT I’M REACHING MORE AND MORE FOR RECENTLY. 

DEEPLY WARM IN TEXTURE YET SCREAMS SOPHISTICATION AND GRACE WHEN WORN. I THINK IT HAS TO DO WITH THE WEIGHT OF THE FABRIC BEING SO LIGHT AND EFFORTLESS. I WAS LEFT FEELING QUITE LIKE A LADY WHILST PRANCING AROUND COVENT GARDEN, WEST END LAST WEEK. 

I STYLED UP MY NEW LOVE FOR THE VELVET FABRIC WITH A COMBO OF MY SEVENTIES BROWN CLASSIC FLARES AND A BEAUTIFUL WINE COLOURED BURGUNDY (MY COLOUR OF THE MOMENT) LONG SLEEVED TURTLE NECK TOP. ALONGSIDE MY £1 VINTAGE FRAMES (YES A QUID!) WHICH I FOUND AT A RECENT MARKET THAT I WAS SELLING AT. I’M STILL IN SHOCK THAT VINTAGE ORIGINAL FRAMES LIKE THESE BABIES, WERE ONLY ONE FRIGGING POUND! A POUND!!! (OK I’M CALMING DOWN BUT A POOOOOOOOUND!!! I’M ACTUALLY QUITE ADDICTED TO QUIRKY FRAMES AT THE MINUTE!). I THEN PIECED THE DREAMY VELVET MIX-MATCH CO-ORDS WITH (ANOTHER FAV) MY 'GRANNY CHIC' GOLD BIG BUCKLED COURT SHOES (HOW CUTE ARE THESE SHOES), AND MY NEW GRANNY BASKET!! 

NOW I HAVE NO IDEA WHY A BLEEDING WHITE GRANNY BASKET GIVES ME SO MUCH INNER JOY BUT IT SERIOUSLY DOES, (I KNOW I’M WEIRD AND NOT OF THIS TIME**COVERS FACE) I JUST LOVE THE TINY DETAILING ON THIS LITTLE BASKET BAG THING SO MUCH. I THINK IT'S BECAUSE MY MUM HAD A SIMILAR ONE IN BLACK THAT I USED TO DANCE AROUND THE HOUSE IN WHEN I WAS LITTLE. I DISTINCTLY REMEMBER HER BAG BEING REALLY OVERSIZED ON MY ARM AND DIFFERENT. (AHH THEM MEMORIES). I’M JUST A SUCKER FOR ANYTHING A BIT CRAZY AND I'M ALSO LOVING THE FACT THAT THE BASKET BAG COMES IN LOT'S OF DIFFERENT INJECTING QUIRKY BOLD COLOURS. 

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS BRIGHT AUTUMNAL LOOK AS MUCH AS I DID WEARING IT………
