Blue Crush

Issey Miyake prism tote

I felt like a right prat for wearing a scarf and jacket a few days ago. What an idiot. 

Black leather biker jacket
Bao Bao Issey Miyake
Stan Smith sneakers

Velvet dress + jacket: H&M. Look at this dress from Anthro. Shoes: Stan Smith. Bag: Issey Miyake. Shades: Ray-Ban foldables. Scarf: Love Quotes.  Necklace: PANDORA. Watch: Gucci
This was about two weeks ago ish before it got stupid cold (and it was a drive in thank God).  Why can’t more dresses be made from velvet?   It straddles the line between modern and vintage. 
ps.  A velvet trouser suit cut slim or oversized would be so badasss.

pps.  My fascination with metallics continues…

      I agree there are very few out there. I linked to one above that I LOVE. It’s not cheap though but by God I love it. Shame that they are few and far between

      ha ha! As was I when I first got it. I like that it’s hardly seen on the streets too.

    Do you wear these sneakers sockless as it looks like?

    Words out my mouth on scrolling down and seeing the dress in all it’s glory, “bl**dy ‘ell, that’s bl**dy gorgeous that is”, great look, and now on a serious hunt for blue velvet. Cheers Karen for sharing.

    Hi – this is such a great look on you! Is the jacket current? Is it leather? Wondering if I should check H&M for it.
