Black Velvet For Under £1024.12.12
Leggings | Karma Clothing
All I could think of while putting this together was this tune - if you don't know it already, it's pretty darn snazzy right? I'm currently singing along - not very festive, but it does make me want to stand up and shimmy (I'll resist the urge).
Velvet isn't my favourite fabric, I'm not to sure about it. I think it's the texture... although I do feel like a bit of a velvet snob. I don't mind the more expensive velvet, but cheaper velvet in general tends to be velour (ie. a 2000's tracksuit) trying to disguise itself. But that's just personal preference! After the popularity of the Lavish Alice Red Velvet Shorts in my Christmas outfits on a budget post I had to make some sort of post dedicated to velvet.
Being the velvet snob that I am, I love the New Look clutch Ive featured here - it's really gorgeous and elegant I think! The peplum top is also something I'd totally wear if I had a job where this fit the bill (I finished on the 22nd! Plus, we couldn't wear sleeveless tops or dresses!). I think it looks far more expensive than £9.95, the baroque print is a nice dressy touch too.
Do share what you think of velvet!
Anyhow, I'd better let you all get back to your festivities! This isn't the most Christmassy of posts, but I hope you've still enjoyed it. Have a fantastic Christmas!
