Flower Crown: Prairie Charms
It has been so long since I last sat down to do an outfit post that I have no idea how to begin one. I suppose I'll start with an apology for the mirror pics. My tripod seems to be a casualty of moving, sadly, I haven't seen it for months. Hoping it's in one of the boxes I am yet to get back from my ex, but we will see.
These photos were actually taken nearly two months ago now, eek! I'm not one to let things go to waste though and it's still an outfit I adore, so why not share?
This lovely pale pink velvet dress was one of the last cheeky purchases I made and it was so definitely worth it. I'm not sure when I started liking velvet. I remember when it first became popular again a few years ago; me, my stepmum and sisters would go into Leeds and proclaim "ewwww" everytime we saw it. Funny how things change, especially considering this is just one of two velvet dresses I bought on the same occasion.
As I feel velvet tends to do enough talking on its own, accessorising was simple. The block colour of the dress called for a pretty statement necklace and my favourite one is this Primark number my lovely sister got me for Christmas. I most likely had earrings as well, but you can never tell underneath my hair. Because it was a special occasion, out came the flower crown too.
Despite being in May, it was actually freezing so tights and the coat were totally necessary. I adore pastel and unusually coloured tights, so when I saw this white pair with teeny tiny heart detailing on, I couldn't resist. In fact, I ordered five more pairs in various colours and patterns. Sadly, they weren't the best quality and I've demolished most pairs. Thanfully my gorgeous (childrens) coat is a lot sturdier. It's so pretty don't you think? Fitting into kids stuff is definitely a perk of being small.
So, as the title suggests, this is the outfit I wore when I went to see Courtney Love. Hopefully, you'll be hearing a little more about that later on this week!
Are you a velvet fan?
