Velvet Crush

Velvet Crush

I am starting to develop a slight crush on all things velvet. Every high-street store has some kind of velvet-element which makes me want to stand there and stroke it, which means I start to attract funny looks.

I think my obsession started when I came across House of Dagmar and these two particular outfits:

I think velvet can be extremely flattering and especially in the pale pink above, it looks so luxurious.

Since all of the winter wear hit the shops I have been scouring for the perfect velvet item to include in my wardrobe. Unfortunately I have had no such luck. Mainly I think this is due to the fact that what I really want is the above pink mini.

So far I haven’t spotted anything that I have fallen for. There was one deep turquoise dress in M&S but it didn’t match up….here a few others that took my fancy…

This play suit from Motel…

These velvet grey shorts from A.P.C Madras…

And finally this ruched skirt from ASOS…

But I am yet to make that special purchase.

    mmm, I know… I've been fussing over this velvet skirt from H&M, it seems like it would make any skirt-like outfit totally luxurious.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog– it totally made my day 🙂

    oh, i totally agree. that skirt is divine, and once you see something like that, it's hard to settle for something less.

    and i'm doing great, thanks! it's good to hear from you!

    I just love the velvet material… specially in this kind of dresses. I'm a fashion designer and this blog is one of the best in this category. Seriously… I think we need more ideas and initiatives like this one! by the way the ruched skirt was amazing! 23jj
