Velvet Slip Dress

I’m riding the velvet wave with this velvet slip dress. It’s getting dangerous working at Topshop. There are always so many cute new items that it can be hard to control myself. And it’s my job to make them look good (I’m a visual merchandiser by day), so I pretty much fall victim to my own work.

I already wore the dress to Vancouver Fashion Week (maybe you saw it on Instagram?) but didn’t shoot it. I know, bad fashion blogger, but it was my boyfriend’s birthday and I didn’t want him to have to take photos. I was surprised enough that he actually wanted to go to Fashion Week for his birthday! Maybe we’re slowly turning into each other. They do say that you are essentially a combination of the 5 people you’re closest to.

Anyway, for today’s post I wanted to show it off in a more casual way, if that’s possible. I chose to wearย it 90s-style with an oversize cardigan and combat boots. I now have my own big black cardigan so I don’t always have toย steal from my boyfriend. I actually love how it looks this way and kind of prefer it to heels and a ‘nice’ jacket.

Is it actually casual enough to wear for walking the dog? Probably not. Especially since we shot inย a neighbourhood with mostly elderly people in sweatpants. I felt so fabulous I didn’t even care I was overdressed. And that is a great feeling.

Thanks for reading and cheers to the wonder fabric that is velvet! x

      Yes it is! Sometimes I feel uncomfortable or awkward, I guess it depends what I’m wearing and the situation. But this time it was fun! xx

    One of the things I definitely love about you my love, is how different and badass your style is. Really, I feel like seeing the same shit everyday and I am guilty of falling into it from time to time. But gosh, you babe are something else and I love how it glows on you! That dress was made for you and you look gorgeous and sexy! Love ya always babe <3

      Aw you are too sweet Neguine! Honestly I wear a lot of the same things for work and everyday life, but I do enjoy getting dressed up differently whenever I can. I like to make sure all my clothes see a bit of the light of day haha xx

      Thank you! Haha the struggle is real, especially when the deliveries are so often. But I’m trying to be careful and only buy the things that really amaze me.
