Ankle boot season is here and this fills me with more joy than it probably should. I adore Autumn. The crisp, sunny mornings. Orange leaves. Hot chocolate. Coat weather. Being able to wear all my boots again. Wahoo!
Sound the klaxon, we’re getting into party season people! Strictly’s gracing our screens, the supermarkets are stocking tins of Quality Streets and the stores are full of sequins. All this means one thing, bedazzled, embellished-to-the-max shoes of dreams, ready to get their groove on.
I have forever been obsessed with velvet. I’m all about the texture and the way it feels when you smooth it down with your hands. I love the luxurious nature and the opulence and glamour it suggests, hence today’s Want it on Wednesday.
You know that feeling of wanting something so badly but never finding the item that lives up to your expectations. I had that with velvet dresses. I’ve wanted one forever but it just hasn’t worked out. Until now.
A couple of weekends ago, I popped into my local Debenhams with my mum and instantly laid eyes on this deep blue H! by Henry Holland number. Boom. It was love at first sight.The fitted top is covered with red and silver sequin hearts and stars before flaring into a skater skirt – major shocker I know. It couldn’t fit me any better and was exactly what I’d always dreamt of. What really made this was the fact that it was heavily discounted so I picked it up for just over £10. Which, let’s be honest, is ridiculously cheap.
Obviously I had to pair it with my red glitter boots and a bold red lip. Nothing else would have done the dress justice.
Now excuse me while I go back to stroking it…
Velvet and check, together. Dreamy.
Look at the way these ASOS trousers in check velvet (it feels good to type that again) sit. I want them slightly big at top with them gradually becoming more tailored by the ankles. I love the high waist, the big pockets and the masculine vibe they have going on.
I need me some velvet in my life kids.
I feel like today’s item has been a long time coming. I am a massive Fearne Cotton fan, so it’s no surprise that I love her collection for Very.
I already have one of her dresses, which you can see here. It’s a beautiful cream dress with a Peter Pan collar. I love it. Anyway, it’s about time I added another to my wardrobe, and here it is.
