Velvet Dreams

Clicking on the name of the shop will take you to the item.
Dress - Urban Outfitters Jacket with Mesh Sleeves - Le Happy X Romwe Necklace - New Look (similar hereBoots - Topshop

This is an outfit that I wore to a party last weekend that I thought I would show you guys. Normally I would go for a shorter dress whilst deciding what to wear for a party but whilst browsing Urban Outfitters website (which has become quite an addiction) I spotted this velvet maxi and thought it would be a great alternative. So here it is. The dress is a slip style, which I think are a wardrobe essential as they are easy to style and often look amazing just on their own. The length gives the dress a more conservative feel but with the slit on the side to show a bit more skin and the velvet texture the formality is cancelled out. It is also the softest material and I probably spent most of the night trying to find ways not to look like a complete weirdo whilst stroking the fabric. Not weird, ok? Ok.

I teamed the dress with my leather jacket with mesh sleeves, I think mesh definitely adds an edge to this outfit and I love the idea of mesh with any outfit to add an extra texture. The statement necklace from New Look was such an affordable price and should definitely still be available in stores, even though I couldn't find it online. New Look are doing some amazing jewellery at the moment and I was finding it hard to just buy one item but eventually chose this due to the filigree style.

After looking for a darker shade of lipstick for a while I bought Beguiled from Topshop's range of makeup. Personally, I don't think it is as matte as it could be and tends to need reapplying more then I would like but overall it is a lovely shade and certainly very 'autumnal'. Still on the lookout for the perfect dark lipstick though.

Hope everyone is having a really great week,
Thanks for reading.
