{ STYLE } Red Velvetini


I've been on the hunt for some velvet-y pieces lately and this red velvet number immediately caught my eye. Not just because of its gorgeous wine red colour ( unfortunately all colours are sold out on OASAP - though you can sign up for an email notification when it does come back in stock :D ) but also because of its very simple design and cut. I'm always on the look-out for really basic pieces because it's so much easier to style and so much more versatile. You can leave it as plain as it is or dress it up- add layers, different prints etc.


With any free-flowing dress, I love to add a belt around my waist to create shape and so it doesn't make me look so frumpy. I've really been overusing this skinny belt decorated with spikes and studs! Super love it!!

I don't know about you but the combination of velvet and leopard print makes me happy! A basic dress like this can be transformed into an A-line skirt just by the addition of a top. You can seriously make so many outfits when you have the basics in your wardrobe!

Yep! Mixing silvers and golds!

I am dying over these babies!! These taupe mary janes embellished with bronze studs and sequins on the heels...LOVE!!

    2. i see, that's nice! what i noticed with these heels is that the material can be sometimes so rough and stiff... and this is what hurt my feet in the end, not the height =='

  6. Your heels are craaaaaazy. They look great on you but would probably to high for me. XD You look great in your dress though. I've also been quite fond of velvet lately for winter. :D
