Besides Pokemon Go and the new Harry Potter book, there’s a new kid all over the block that’s got me excited. That’s velvet. Yeah, it’s not exactly new since I’ve been craving a pink velvet dress ever since Twenty-Seven Names brought out one in their collection forever ago, but it’s back in a newer and cooler way. Slip dresses from Are You Am I, chunky boots from ASOS and chokers in pastel colours – what’s not to love? I’m on the hunt now for the perfect crushed velvet slip dress because it’s literally impossible to find
I’m currently sitting in a hostel in Brighton writing this, craving the heat. I’m not sure if this is a normal summer by UK standards but it’s pretty underwhelming. It’s amazing to me how you can hop on a plane for an hour and be in a completely different climate and culture though. You can’t even get from Auckland to home in that time – pretty bloody lucky.
I love velvet! In particular when its pink!
I absolutely love this mood board. The idea of creating one just for velvet was a great choice. You did great with coordinating this board down to the color palettes which I think complimented each other very well. Not only that, but the picture of Gilda Ambroisio at the bottom left is my favorite. She killed that look (and everything she puts on) by layering a velvet dress over her oversized top. Anyway, love this post you did a great job!
So much great inspiration!
