crushed pink velvet dress, military coat, cross body bag: Zara - thigh high boots: & Other Stories - western double buckle belt: ASOS - choker: H&M
Told you I was riding the velvet wave (damn boy, that sounds so sexual)! Also, again, pink. I guess pink + velvet is basically the apex of my style obsessions. My outfit is glamrock as hell, and I'm loving it! I don't generally wear a belt low like this over a dress, but I felt like it worked for this particular look. Definitely retro, but that's rarely a negative thing for me.
I'm so happy I got these boots last year, I doubted my purchase for a while because they weren't exactly cheap, but I wear them all the time and they're beautiful, warm and super comfortable, so I have zero regrets. I can't recommend & Other Stories' thigh high boots enough as a more affordable alternative to the popular Stuart Weitzmans. My own boots seem to be back in stock as well, get them here! These are gorgeous as well. I love how they offer boots with a stylish mid height heel, such an underserved subcategory.
I'll be presenting my research at a conference at the Flemish parlement this Friday and I'm quite excited for that, so cross your fingers I'll rock it! Probably won't wear my thigh highs, though. Keeping it on the sartorially safe side.
