OOTD | She wore blue velvet...

Blue Velvet Dress with Lace Collar


Blue Velvet Dress with Lace Collar
Jeffrey Campbell Thomb Boot


To be honest, I don't even like Lana Del Rey, I just couldn't stop thinking of this song whilst taking these photos. I honestly need a better background to feature in my outfit posts, my bedroom wall is totally 'unprofessional' of me. My apologies. Two major things on my wish-list are a better camera and a tripod! If anyone's selling any - please email me & let me know! Anyway, due to me trying not to spend too much on clothes and beauty products, I've been rooting through my mass of clothes that I've hoarded over the years and am trying to get some wear out of typically 'older' clothes. This little dress being one of them. It's a cosy little number that fits beautifully, I don't think I'll ever be able to part with it. Cue a silly picture...

Velvet Dress - ASOS // Jeffrey Campbell Thomb Boots - Karmaloop // Tights - Primark // Assorted Rings - Topshop

This dress is so easy to wear. A pair of tights & boots like above and you've got a casual outfit; Whip off your tights and add some killer heels and boom, your off the the pub for drinks! Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I'll be showing you some more 'oldie but goldie' items that are stashed in my wardrobe. Let me know what type of outfit posts you'd like to see and don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin, thanks for reading.

  19. Blue Velvet is actually a really old song, Lana Del Rey just covered it. I can't make up my mind if I like her or can't stand her. Anyways you look lovely and the dress is adorable. I love velvet and that's a very pretty shade of blue.

  41. You're not the only one taking pics in front of a blank wall--it's too cold here for outdoor photos, so I'll probably be utilizing the back of a white door for my 'backdrop' this week!
