My Dreamy Velvet Dress, Henry Holland Style

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…

Want it on Wednesday: Fearne Cotton Velvet Swing Dress

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.

Fearne Cotton’s Velvet Swing Dress

I’ve always wanted a velvet dress but haven’t found the right one to buy. I don’t do ‘figure-hugging’. Instead I opt for skater style or even better, swing dresses. Kerching. Here it is.
It’s a beautiful deep-purple, crushed-velvet, Peter-Pan collared beaut of a dress. I want it and I want it NOW.
