When all else fails…

We all have one of those pieces in our wardrobe, the thing when the rest of your clothes are lying unloved and rejected on the floor after a manic “I have nothing to wear” session that we reach for time and time again. Be this in the form of a massive fluffy jumper, an old pair of Levis which have probably seen a few world wars in their time or a classic little black dress, we all have them tucked away somewhere.

Despite all of these being very much on my panic dressing hit list the one item which has reigned above all since its purchase has been this lovely vintage black velvet dress. It may be cheesy to say it but  with it being black, a shirt dress and vintage its pretty much me in velvety goodness dress form.  The £9 price tag also makes it all that bit sweeter with the cost per wear probably now being less than a tin of beans (and I don’t even mean fancy old Heinz).

With any completely black outfit I always try and throw in a splash of colour somewhere and this beautiful suede bag did just the trick. All my thrifting powers were put to good use with this look with managing to pic this bag up for a couple of pounds in a charity ship. With its angular hexagon shape (seems I learnt something in GCSE Maths) it adds a geometric edge to a pretty piece and adds another spot of interest.
