VELVET OBSESSION | October Wish List

Oops, I have been absent from the blog for what feels like ages (about a month) due to some exciting developments! I started an internship at Temperley London in September, which kept me pretty busy (and exhausted). It was an amazing opportunity, which took me to London Fashion Week and Paris and I learnt a lot. I won't go into much detail as I hope to put together a post on it soon! The internship ran into the first week of uni, so I moved all my stuff back to Winchester over the weekend and have been thrown into third year. 

Explanations over, let's move onto why you're here... the fashion. Velvet is a HUGE trend this season and one that I plan to wholeheartedly throw myself into. Luckily the shops have my back so I've put together a selection of velvet bits that I'm lusting for.

First up are these embroidered culottes from Zara. As an enthusiastic culottes wearer, I want a pair in every colour and style. So naturally I fell for this velvet pair as soon as I saw them. Plus they're embroidered (also super on-trend) which gives a Gucci vibe (which I am forever after).

Next is this First & I slip dress, which is a beautiful navy shade. As we know, I love slip dresses especially with a bit of lace. I'd wear this dress over a long sleeved top and fishnets in the day, then remove the top and add a bold lip for night.

Onto a bit of lingerie... I love this velvet bralet from New Look. I think the style is simple enough to have on show beneath a sheer top, or shirt unbuttoned lower than normal. It's a beautiful burgundy, which screams autumn just as much as velvet does.

My favourite colour of this wish list has to go to these gorgeous pale pink heels. I also love the style of the shoe - the almond toe and ankle strap are so pretty! While the chunky heel ensures steady footing. Now, can someone point me in the direction of a matching crop top please?

On the way to my internship, I'd pass the New Bond Street Miu Miu store every morning, and I'd have to stop myself from drooling in front of their windows all day. As well as these pink kitten heels that I need, I also fell head over heels for their velvet shoulder bag. I love the combination of the quilted black velvet with the silver chain and it's the perfect size. It would also go with everything, and look so chic worn crossbody over a jacket.

The final piece is this lace-edged crop top from New Look. I have so many black crop tops in my closet but I wouldn't hesitate to buy more, because I wear them all the time and find them so easy to style! I'd wear this one with a leather skirt or a pair of culottes, then throw on an oversized jacket worn undone to show off the velvet.

Let me know if you'll be wearing velvet this season, and what is your favourite piece?

Gosh, all this velvet makes me want more pairs of fishnets... I think they're a match made in heaven.
