black velvet

 
dress: topshop
kimono: topshop
item: prettybowpeep*
nails: opi sparrow me the drama

Lazy day today, making the most of the bad weather outside and getting stuff done. Which of course includes a couple of outfit posts as I'm back at uni now! Got this black velvet skater dress in the sale a few weeks ago, it's a size 6 and therefore it's also now a 'fat day' dress that will automatically help me to feel better when I don't feel so good! Paired it with my third crochet kimono (I got this one on eBay!) so I wasn't being too goffik in all black as always.

Was sent this cute arty-inspired ring last week. I love it but it seems to make my finger go purple. My fault for having sausage fingers I guess. Seriously why does it look so tight even though it doesn't feel it? Troll finger. Now time to go cry into some pudding with full fat custard. Or something. Zzzzz.

Sarah posted a feature/illustration over on her blog. Thanks so much Sarah, I love it! Take a look!

PS. 100th episode of Gossip Girl next week! The sooner Chair get married and have babies the better. Le sigh.

  12. This dress is gorgeous, but i HATE the feel of velvet! And the rings gorgeous, your finger is purple. You don't have sausage hands and no way are you 'fat' so stop putting yourself down! Your gorgeous!

  43. Ahh I missed that Kimono ! I think I prefer this more than the black ! It'll be perfect for near the beach as I basically live on an Island, with beaches all round ! Need it in my life ! If I can find it via ebay again and hopefully the price doesn't go too much up ! Bargain-ista FTW !

  50. I'm spending my lazy day in a massive jumper and leggings with copious amounts of tea and cookie crumble galaxy chocolate to keep me slugging on through my uni work (by uni work I mean spending all day on pinterest....). Your lazy day outfit is pretty nice, especially the YSL-esque ring. Might have to go internet shopping for that now. xxx
