Velvet Skater Dress

Oh hi. I bought this dress for 2 euro in the monthly Think Twice sales when it was still an ankle length dowdiness-fest and I hemmed it to mini length and now it is divine.

dress: Think Twice vintage, altered
blazer, coat, faux fur collar, tights: H&M
shoes: Kimchi & Blue
ring: Alex Monroe
nailpolish: Catrice

A thoroughly sixties outfit today, centered around the very two things I am obsessed with right now, stylewise at least: velvet and faux fur. Luxurious, soft, rich fabrics I want to coat my LIFE with <3 Also, this blazer is one of the oldest things I still wear to this day. I think I bought it when I was 15, almost ten years ago, WHOA nelly! It has this awesome laced detail at the back but of course I forgot to take pictures of it. Use your imagination! Or not, whatevs. 

I'm going to watch some Sherlock now, enjoy your weekend!

  9. Super cute jurkje, prachtige kleur en stof! En ja, die blazer is echt al super oud!. Cool dat je dat nog gewoon hebt en draagt. Waarschijnlijk kan jij op je 40ste nog steeds in de kleren die je droeg toen je net in de puberteit kwam. :-D

  17. Hi! I'm so curious, I know. But what are your wearing underneath the dress? Or is it part of the dress? Is it something like a petticoat? Or just a ballerinalike skirt? Enough with the questions. Nice outfit! x

  18. Mary Janes? Petticoats? Fur trims? Three of my favourite fashion items! All beautiful.

  20. Ha, my friend and my sister both used to have that blazer in different colours (in fact, like you, still do have it). Totally loving the vibe of this outfit, LOVE the cheeky underskirt thingy, and also the white tights (very Yours Truly, haha). : )

  21. ah yes I love yours truly! BUT I got into wearing pale tights last winter so not ALL the credit goes to her! :D

  22. You look absolutely beautiful! Was this fabric difficult to hem?
    Really though, I love everything about this look; it is the perfect winter/Christmas dress. :)

  27. What a sweet velvet dress! I've seen a couple of maxi-velvets at my local thrift store (who wants that?!), and I didn't even think to shorten them!
