Velvet Worn My Way

This look is the outcome of my compulsion to shop the January sales. Velvet has definitely been a missing factor in my life and this outfit finally balances out my wardrobe. The moment I saw these high-waisted shorts, I fell head over heels with them! They're vintage yet current and not to mention pretty beyond belief. The lace underlined detail is a match made in heaven against the red/pink velvet.

This velvet-meets-mesh crop top with a sweetheart neckline adds that additional velvet touch and brings this outfit together. I love it! As you can see, this look is rather glamorous which is rather ironic as I put my black Dr Martens on without even a second thought - it makes this outfit more casual and more me. Plus I was walking through the woods so they actually came in handy too!

The icing on the cake for me is my fur leather jacket. It just so happens that it goes incredibly well with the colour of the shorts, it was definitely meant to be. I literally can't get enough of velvet right now but not just any velvet, red velvet! I hope you like this look try it out in your own way.
