Transparency is freedom, so I commit to sharing my story with you.
I think I mentioned in a previous post how much I loved velvet (especially wine colored velvet). It’s such a sultry feel and touch to any outfit, whether it’s a dress, leggings, or in this case, a turtleneck. That evening, I was readying myself to go out to dinner with a couple of friends and since LA weather decided to dip back into the 60s again, I told myself, “Why the hell not?”
So here we go.
Velvet Turtleneck: Thrifted
Floral skirt: Thrifted
Skinny Belt: Target
It’s a pretty simple outfit, I think what makes it interesting is the play on textures and patterns. So you have velvet matched together with a classic floral skirt. Of course, I had to wear my cut-out boots. I’m pretty sure I’m going to wear them out to the point where I’d have to buy another pair. They just go with everything.
Below: Leather studded jacket. Again, play on textures. I just really enjoy the way a feminine look can be toughened up.
Special thanks to all my friends who generously give up their time to help me take photos of myself. LOL, but until I have the dough to hire my own personal photographer, ya’ll going to be doing that charity work. <33 We had to walk around for a bit until we found the perfect location, then I had to awkwardly pretend that I didn’t care that cars were driving by me wondering what the heck is this girl doing. Oh the things I do for this blog.
