National Velvet


I have recently fallen back in love with velvet. You can’t really avoid it right now – it’s pretty much EVERYWHERE. You do have to be careful though – it can all go a bit ‘Hampstead Bazaar’ if you’re not careful. I’ve been wearing my Gap black velvet slip dress a lot (with either a cashmere sweater or a grey sweatshirt and chelsea boots) all the time, and the latest addition to my wardrobe is a pair of black velvet ankle boots from Penelope Chilvers. I even wore a black velvet shirt-dress to The White Company shopping event last Thursday (sorry it not long appears to be on the website, but there are still some in store). I’d actually really like a velvet suit, but not entirely convinced I can pull it off? Hmmm. Let’s see.
So I thought I would share an edit of my favourite velvet pieces around – from a cool trouser suits to Catherine Deneuve style hair accessories to mini-bags…
I’m liking my velvet mixed up with denim,  cool tees (love this and this one too), and Converse...

ps: LOVE this printed velvet dress. Very Preen. And loving it with Converse too.
