Fall is around the corner (loud cry inside) and although I am a Summer baby, I have to come to truths that seasons change and I need a new pair of booties. There’s a few others on here that I’m craving once I was looking through “new arrivals” pages on brand’s sites, like the fluffy lamb flats and lamb printed pumps..theme? Any who, this season I need a good pair of black booties, looking at you Alexander Wang, and the rest is just dress-up!
Velvet is back this season, so says the entire fashion industry anyways, and I am into it. I bought this blazer at Zara like a million years ago and I’ve maybe worn in 5 times mostly to class presentations. I bought it because I have always had a slight obsession with velvet. It may be because when I was a kid I remember many of my favourite items I wore being velvet-this red dress I wore for christmas and class photos and this lilac gymnastics suit I continued to wear as a bathing suit well after I stopped going to gymnastics.
This blazer fit really well with all the cuts for the curves I do not have, and I figured was an easy throw-on piece for added structure. Sometimes as a more petite human adding structure to your outfit can be really helpful to shaping you and helping you look a little older even if you paired with boyfriend jeans and a baggy tee.
I love velvet because it’s such a rich texture that adds that extra note of cool to your outfit. Velvet is so underrated but now I’m seeing a huge welcoming to the fabric even in shoes this season. My fuzzy texture loving heart approves.
This is NOT a dress I would normally go for but the cut had me at H.E.L.L.O. Even the way it hung bodiless, motionless and messy on the hanger I knew it I had to try it on. The cut of this dress is cute and sexy at the same time with the longer tea-length skirt, a bit of mid drift, and the tie up bra style top, not to mention this dress is outrageously “easy access”; good for like the third date? I wish it came in a basic colour so I could wear it every day. Gingham isn’t an everyday vibe for me personally but more something I could see myself in if I had an event to go to that was a fashion forward yet a professional setting, or something like a casual wedding, baby/wedding shower or fancy brunch. It’s super light weight too as Summer is not giving up on us here in Toronto, so thrown on with a pair of comfy sandals you could easily stroll around town in this and I guarantee people would ask where it’s from.
