Shirt: H&M
Dress: Vero Moda
Cardigan: Topshop
Chain: H&M
Boots: Topshop
Lip: MAC 'Amorous'

Hello! As my lovely readers will already know,  I'm a huge fan of texture, so I've been loving the influx of velvet on the high street recently! It inspired me to pull out this Vero Moda dress which I got, almost a year ago now, to wear for my 19th birthday. It has such a beautiful velvet finish, and open detail on the back, so I had to pull it out of the wardrobe. 

It was only a day-time job though so I layered my pale pink shear shirt underneath, and some black tights to help me through the arctic conditions that are creeping up on us at the moment!
And then, of course, I grabbed my big chunky cardigan from Topshop, which I've had for YEARS now, and it's still one of my key winter pieces- what an investment hey!

I wanted to tribute to the stereotypical black velvet thing a little, so I opted for a dark plum coloured lip with my mac 'amorous' which I LOVE!

Blogging to you guys is keeping me sane at the moment with all my coursework deadlines popping up next week, I will be breathing a giant sigh of relief next friday when everything is done, and I will be 'driving home for christmas'....
