So you are all probably aware of my YouTube OOTD. (If you are not, check out my video here) I am still getting used to YouTube, I am unsure whether or not my readers prefer a video or picture format for Outfit posts. Nonetheless, do tell me what you are all thinking, at the moment I am thinking of doing a combination of them both.
I am a huge fan velvet. Especially velvet on shoes! Velveteen garments are great, but velveteen shoes are greater! In my AW12 collection, I included plenty of velvet on shoes, I think it's a staple and a trend that shouldn't be left out.
In this post I am wearing a velvet maxi skirt, which I must admit, I haven't worn often. Although it is stunning, I honestly do find it often impractical at times. The chilly weather, albeit, is not an excuse to not wear this velvet maxi skirt! I'll let you in on a little secret, just slip on a pair of leggings underneath your maxi skirt and voila! No problems with the bitter breeze outside your window. And in the unlikely case of a tempest blowing your skirt up, then you won't need to worry about that either; because you'll have a trusty pair of leggings on underneath.
I am addicted to glitter. It has become almost mandatory for me to mention that in every post, don't you think? The sequinned top from H&M looked like it was made for me! It is sparkly indeed, but it has a clever matte finish, which really tones the outfit down. Another clever thing about the sequinned top is that it is lined with comfy cotton, so no itchy sequins either.
You have probably seen my boots cropping up in many outfit posts. Well you honestly can't blame me, the boots are perfect. They are lined with faux fur on the inside, you can fold them over as well as keep your feet warm, and they come in an array of staple colours. If you are interested in a pair, then feel free to contact me for an order. (NB: Prices non-negotiable)
