Velvet has been a dreamy staple of mine this season, and although I didn’t rock a full Max Mara Velvet suit I did buy a few key pieces. Mainly from the accessories family and so rich in colour they look good enough to eat! My love started with the Self-Portrait Pink Shorts found in my previous post. Ive worn them several times, with and without tights and look forward to switching it up to a breezier summer top once the sun shows itself.
I wore this Misa Los Angeles Velvet wrap dress when I went to a charity lunch in Manchester organised by Julie Perry Events. I adore the colour and in every light it shows a slightly different shade of plum. I especially liked the ruching and plait detail across the waist. It was super comfortable even with the deep plunge at the front. When I wore this dress I received loads of compliments and I had an absolutely amazing day helping raise money for the Christie Charity.
This Gucci Dionysus mini bag was love at first sight, the jewelled tone, the touch of sparkle. However, I was slightly concerned that it would be more pretty than practical. I was right, it just fits my phone and credit card in but what else does a girl want on a night out right?
