Velvet Vampire

The day after Halloween I was still in the holiday spirit, so I pulled out this velvet dress and played up the gothic vampire vibe a bit with my combat boots and sexy tights. This sort of slightly punk-gothic-edgy look was totally my style in my mid teens so it feels nice to revisit that part of me now and then. Like dressing up to evoke my edgy, devil-may-care teen me! 

We took pictures before returning home from Antwerp at a monumental factory on the Schelde banks because it totally fit my aesthetic. Modern vampires always hang out at deserted factory grounds! But I don't sparkle.


dress: MIEOLS
tights, boots: Pimkie
boots: Boyfriend's
cardigan: Zara (5 years old and still flawless, it's a cashmere-silk mix)
sunglasses: Urban Outfitters


I got this dress as a present from Mais Il Est Où Le Soleil and I love it to bits, SUCH an amazing, luxurious yet wearable piece. I love all the little details that make it stand out.

I couldn't just let my gorgeous pumpkin be forgotten without being featured one last time, so here it is shining it's light on our hallway's wall. The dancing shadows made me feel like a kid again, excited about something ordinary looking like magic.

  1. Oooh zo'n mooie jurk! En mooie kousen! Prachtige outfit en ik vind de bruine cardigan erbij ook heel goed om het net een beetje zachter te maken.

  5. it's all in the colors: don't go for all black as it looks very costumey a lot of the times, work some unexpected but dark colors into the mix and you're good to go! thanks so much for your sweet words! :D

  19. I love it! The velvet dress is so pretty, and I love how edgy it is with your boots and tights. You'd make a great vampire. Hehe. It's funny, I'm writing a vampire fiction right now. I should base someone on you. Just for the fun of it.
