OOTD - Velvet Crush
Okay so i have a bit of a velvet crush i must admit, I'm thinking of starting a whole collection of it hehe, this dress is kinda vintage as it was passed down to me from my older sister, so its about 20 years old, nevertheless it's from Topshop and I think they have similar designs there at the moment. Autumn and winter are all about layering, as the temperature is slowly decreasing and we wave goodbye to shorts and bandeau's and hello to thick cardi's fair isle jumpers and scarves! I love fall just as much as i love spring, because it's when everything is subtly changing and i think it's so beautiful. Anyway, fall fashion is also another reason I love fall!
This look is fairly simple and I put it together in about 5 minutes, underneath my beloved velvet dress I have my vintage lace blouse from Paris, along with a collared necklace, Topshop. I threw on a navy cardi from men's newlook, and to make the look a bit more interesting I added a straw hat. Even though straw hats are more of a summer thing, I think you can get away with them in autumn!
