OOTD: Blue Velvet


Kimono: Topshop Sale, £25 // Vest: Topshop Sale, £10 // Triangle Necklace: eBay, 99 pennies // Hat: Vintage via Beatnik Emporium, £23 // Tights: Primark, £2 // Socks: Primark, £1 (2 pack) // Doc Marten's: An old friend, £30

For the first time in a long while, not one single Urban Outfitters piece features in this outfit! Shock, horror! This velvet kimono literally turned up this morning and I threw it straight on with what I was wearing already. I absolutely adore it! As you may know I have a constant love affair with velvet, in particular royal blue velvet. I don't think I ever plan to take it off again, I'm in love! Also, my lovely black leather heeled sandals also turned up. Hopefully the weather will perk up soon though so I can actually wear them!

This vest was also another Topshop purchase. I'm not usually a fan of graphic prints from Topshop as they always seem a bit immature and remind me of something a 15 year old girl would wear. At 21 years old that's not really the look I'm aiming for! However, the shape of this vest drew me in as it's dipped at the back and the print isn't too bad! I've now got the rest of the week off of work so I plan to throw myself quite literally into the massive pile of uni work that awaits me! Wish me luck.

  1. This is amazing! Aah the kimono, velvet + royal blue = perf. Love the two patterned lace of the tights and socks over one another and the Docs pull it all in cos they match the ends of your hair! Your new fringe is also fabbbbb.
