OOTN | Velvet


Velvet Top - Topshop (Old)
Leather Skirt - H&M
Velvet Boots - H&M
Pentagram Choker - eBay

I know that this leather skirt has been in my last two outfit posts, but I just can't stop wearing it.  It was definitely one of my better purchases.  This is pretty much what I wore out last Friday night.  I say 'pretty much', because technically, I wore my black docs.  I basically live in those things, day and night.  If I was feeling a tad less lazy, I would've gone for these velvet babies.

How cute are these little 90's buns?!  There's two things I hate right now: having my hair dangling all over my face, like go away hair.  And those two awkward front bits that used to be a fringe, but are half way through growing out - they just look awful on my hair.  These little buns sort both those issues out, and they are a bit more adventurous than my usual go to, half up top knot.

I also realize I went a bit cray cray on the whole editing thing, but I wanted to experiment with making the photos look all vintage-like.  This is the result.  Thoughts?

  8. These photos look amazing, I really like the vintage effect, makes them stand out but doesn't deter away from the outfit itself. Also loving the hair, when I am feeling more adventurous I will give it a go! x

  14. This entire look is so edgy - it really suits you! The style of the top is perfect, especially with the tassel detail around the hemline - funnily enough, I bought a velvet top just a couple of weeks ago, so I feel your appreciation of the material! :)

  30. I quite like the vintage sepia look happening here. It's something different compared to all the other outfit posts, you know. I also feel your pain about hairs. I have one of those fringes that has outgrown it's bangs and I've let it go out of control. I could have cut it myself but I've been lazy. Plus I'm getting my hairs done on Friday so until then they'll continue to p*** me off

  49. Gorgeous outfit :) love the skirt too. I wear my hair up in two little buns and have been for years - I love it it's so cute! I used to get teased for it but hey now it's cool I guess haha! I might try leaving half my hair down like you've done, my hair is so thick and long it rarely stays up in a bun for long :(

    I like the vintagey vibes with the editing, especially where you are sitting against the wall. The first two might have looked better as they were :) it's a cool new look, maybe mix it up a bit 'cos I like how your photos usually are too :)

  55. I think my favorite thing ever is having one piece in my wardrobe that I wear over and over without stopping (my beanie) so don't be ashamed of wearing that leather skirt in all your posts, it's so flattering.
