I'll never be Christina Ricci


velvet skater dress skater collar dress black velvet dress white collar satchel bag
Dress: c/o Oh My Love
Bag: c/o Brand Village
Tights: Pretty Polly

Soz for being a bit too "c slash o" in this post, but the bag and the dress went so well together I couldn't resist. I actually love the fit of this oh my love dress, it's perfect for indoors-during-chilly-weather wear as the sleeves protect your arms without getting overbearingly hot in a chunky cardigan. I quite like the cut as well, it's rather slimming and flairs out at the leg chunk length. Plus it's velvet, which I'd be way more excited about if my cat wasn't ginger and if he didn't have a penchant for rubbing his face on everything. The bag is from brand village and satchels=love.

I've been to view a house today (another renter) and I'm confused. It's nice, it's a house, it has a garden BUT it'd mean either a 40 minute walk for me or shelling out for another car as Thomas works the other side of town. I'd like to mull it over for a while but my current contract has almost run out. Hmmm decisions decisions.

Also it looks like I've become something the me of three years ago detested, have a looky here to see why, ah I'm such a fickle character when it comes to clothes.

  4. The dress is perfect, and it looks perfect on you! I'm big on velvet, absolutely love it. If I was your cat I'd be all over it too [that sounded wrong but I love the feel of velvet..] x

  5. Lovely outfit, i love how it all just fits together easily.

  6. hahaha you gave in to the ole suspender tights... I must say tho you look allot better than the examples in your 'dont do it' post. I have a few pairs and Ive worn them out a coupla times. I think they are great for feeling dressy but still covered. Also because the dress your wearing them with here is high neck and long sleeves it gives the tights a much more sophisticated look. I love it x x

  7. Oh I love everything about this outfit! The tights look so cool with the dress, I always worry about wearing plain black tights with a black dress and really need to get some kind of patterned ones. The dress looks gorgeous on you and I love the bag :)

  18. You look absolutely amazing you gorgeous thing! I love this outfit, I caved and bought suspender tights to wear with denim shorts at a festival in September but they ripped on the studs in my shorts and I felt majorly self conscious I looked like a massive ho; ripped suspender tights are a step too far! xo

  21. I'm so jealous you're the owner of this little baby - I keep trying it on in Topshop and then looking at my bank card in despair. One day it'll be mine, and I'm sure my fat little cat will rub her face off of it too. Little shit, Alsoooo I can't watch your video cos my computer has no sound... WHAT IS MY LIFE x

  22. You look beautiful, the velvet looks great, welcome to the dark side ;)

  23. Forget your cat, I want a face rubbing on that velvet. Don't worry, I'll wait till your not wearing it though - I'm sure you're not still wearing this dress now... 24 hours later. But fair dos if you are - it is beautiful. I'll shut up now.
