Pocket dress: American Apparel. All in One: Rachel Rachel Roy. Wedges: ACNE
Wide leg + drapey velvet = walking with schwing.
In the same way that we saw florals in summer used more exploratively, it’s cool to also see velvet pieces now available in ways a little less expected.

    I had black velvet overalls when I was like 13, lol.. I did feel like they felt rather luxurious. But I can’t imagine wearing them now. You manage to pull it off though!

    I love them idea of this but it’d be cuter in a more slimming cut. I’m bigger than you are – and something like this would have me looking like a bloated beach whale lol. You manage to pull it off quite nicely though, Karen

    Karen B HAPPY NEW YEAR! love xoxo

  29. Karen says:

    Thx everyone!!

    Allison – sorry I’m not sure where they are now. I got them a few months ago :-/

    Francheska – I bet you could!!!

    Fadetoblack – actually i can see you in these. You’d look fine.

    Anon 1 – thx for being your usual lovely self and gracing us with your words to live up to your ‘name’

    Anon 2 – hmmm it would be cool actually to see a slimmer cut version. those would be really interesting. For now, the wide leg cut of these will suffice : )

    Oh dear me – Happy New Year!!!!!!
