I am a huge Man Repeller fan and if you do not know what that is, go look it that before anything. You can thank me later! Great, so, guys there post stories like “I dresses as Kim K for a week”, “I dressed at Diane Keaton for a week” and other similar stories that I absolutely love. And while I was trying to figure ideas for the next blog story, I knew I wanted to do something similar but also different in way. Because, come on, this is my blog right? Anyway, that’s when it struck me. Velvet.
I chose velvet for 2 reasons:
- My never-ending love for the fabric. Now believe you me, I dearly hated it as a kid, mostly for how tacky it looked. Of course, now I can’t get enough.
- The second reason would be the skepticism about velvet among people. A lot of people I know still find it a little OTT, confusing or too hard to work with; which is absolutely untrue.
In fact, to come to think of it, velvet is one of the most easy fabrics to work with. So I decided to do a whole week’s lookbook, styling different outfits, all in- *drum roll*-velvet.
Doing Monday right, I tackled the blues in a beautiful velvet top with some fur detailing on the cuffs. I wore it with a pair of high-waisted trousers and strappy heels, finishing with a huge bag adding some more colour to my day!
Cracking a big business meeting in my black velvet slip dress worn over a not-so-basic white shirt, cinched the waist with a big, bold belt, and topped off with a blazer.
I actually wore this combination to work once and you guys loved the picture I shared so I thought why not! A velvet sweater I bought like 4 years back, when velvet wasn’t even a thing, and some high-waisted 70’s flared jeans. Don’t miss the Gucci inspired shoes, which are also my current favs!
Have you watched That ’70s Show? This is just out of that show and come on, even if you haven’t, you know this look is a total tribute to the ’70s. Velvet Pants? Check. Crop top? Check. Denim Jacket? Check. Choker? Check. Pearl studded vintage bag? Check.
Doing my Friday night in this crazy velvet romper with bell-sleeves and a plunging neckline. I wore a lacey bralette inside, because come on, we don’t wanna show too much! Haha. I finished the look with some nude tie-up sandals and a another one of my vintage velvet bag!
Going basic (or maybe not so much) with a simple slip dress and a velvet embossed shrug. I gave my waist some definition with a mustard tie-up and boots that I literally can’t do without!
Going for a fun Sunday brunch in my flirty velvet dress! The dress is super fun itself and the little cut-outs on the waist add just the right amount of drama. I took a jacket along because, let’s face it, a denim jacket makes it all alright. Don’t you forget to give a good look to my adorable pink velvet bag and well, of course, Chuck Taylors FTW!
Phew! This is it ladies. Please tell me what you think of the whole story, this new concept, anything at all actually. Honest opinions please?
Let me know which look was your favourite!! 😀
