Black Velvet ...

One of my going out essentials this year has been my black velvet bodycon skirt. I love how easy it is to style and how it can be dressed up or down! I'm very happy that it looks like velvet is here to stay this winter (seen on the catwalks of Burburry & Ralph Lauren). So here are 2 outfit posts showing ways I've worn this skirt recently!
Topshop pink tee (£14)
Topshop bodycon skirt (£20)
Dorothy Perkins heels (£22)
Vintage St Michael Body
Topshop Bodycon skirt (£20)
Dorothy Perkins heels (£22)

I found this printed body in our dressing up box a few months ago (Yes I still have a dressing up box..!) unfortunately it has an awkward piece of elastic around the middle which means it can only be worn with high waisted shorts/skirts! Still, I'm not complaining!

What do you think of velvet? How would you wear this skirt?

Lots of Love, Millie

P.s. These pictures were edited on picnik which I discovered after the lovely Jazzabelle of Jazzabelles Diary mentioned it on her latest blog post! It's one of my favourite blogs! Have a look!


  1. I have that vintage body in a vest. Like the print from St Michaels. It's so pretty ! I wish I had a body too. Can you not put a belt over the elastic to mask it? xo

  2. Haha I just re read that and it sounds like I jut have a head and limbs. I meant I wish I had the body too.
