As someone who was born after the 80's and has no horrific memories of velvet at its cheesy best i have thrown myself into the resurgence of the velvet as 1. its ridiculously warm and 2. it makes colours look beautiful and rich and therefore has something distinctively festive about it. this particular playsuit is from topshop and worn with some ollllllld H&m lace top i got in the sales once and a necklace twisted to serve as a belt.

i only recently began to truly appreciate urban outfitters. the first few times i went into the one on oxford street i didnt immediatly "identify" with the kinda layed back American style that dominates but on the about fifth occasion i went there i started finding some seriously good pieces with the major plus point being that you are less likely to bump into people wearing the same clothes as you compared to topshop. i really like their quilted bags and also recently bought a lovely pair of loafers from there. this particular dress is from the urban renewal range which i think is a great idea in itself. each dress is made out of vintage material which is then redesigned by young fashion students, making it a unique piece of fashion that also promotes young talent!

This skirt is from Topshop and made from real ostrich feathers. I got it on one of my regular trips to the Oxford Circus brand and bought it even though the zipper is broken. It's a really delicate colour and loses some of its feathers after a while but is a beautiful piece of design thatworks particularly well with this beaded and sequined top from Topshop.
