IMHO one of the best fashion quotes is “never say never in fashion, because you’ll be wearing never in two years time” (Alexa Chung). Unless you’ve got a strict uniform, it’s true. Once upon a time I wouldn’t consider wearing a hoodie outside of a gym, but here I am wearing one of my new favourite outfits: a leather jacket, lace-up pants & velvet hoodie.
I’ve always had a thing for lace-up; these aren’t my first lace-up pants. I bought a pair of back lace-up leggings when I was about 15 (sale Adidas by Stella McCartney, woo!). They’re still my go-to workout bottoms. I always wanted a non-sporty pair but never saw any until this year.
I’m seriously impressed with these ones from SheIn. The fit is absolutely perfect which is so rare for buying pants online. They start right at my natural waist and end just above my ankles. Petite girls know what a big deal that is. The shipping was also pretty fast because SheIn has a distribution centre in Alberta (that’s where the from address was on the package). Great news for my fellow Canadians.
The hoodie is proof that if it’s velvet, I probably want it. That, and I was starting to feel a bit guilty about always borrowing Kirill’s hoodies (*wears his hoodie while typing this*). I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers have stopped wearing velvet but the obsession is still strong with me. It’s everything I want in a fabric: shiny, nice to touch, and comfortable. It’s known as a winter fabric, but I think it’s spring/summer appropriate when done in lighter colours. I’ve picked up a few pieces that can testify. Everything looks better in velvet, doesn’t it?
Do you have any fashion ‘nevers’ that you started wearing?
