Velvet Crush








Dress + Belt - Charity Shop
Necklace - Vintage from eBay

Hello lovelies!


Apologies for the lack of blogging - University work got in the way for a while and I have had very little time to myself, let alone time to blog! Anyways, semester one is well and truly out the way - very scary to think I only have one semester of uni left... Roll on graduation in May! Eeeek! 

I took these photos a while back during the Christmas holidays. Now, it simply isn't Christmas without a spot of Velvet here and there, am I right? I've had this dress for a few years now, it was a maxi dress that I shortened and now provides me with the perfect festive party dress. I love the colour and the crushed velvet effect is a classic textile for this time of year.. even though it's now January.. 

Hope you all enjoy my new Instagram bar at the top there... Follow me to see all my snaps here!!  :)

More soon, 

Helen

  14. Hi Helen,
    you look very pretty. I like your hair so much and the dress suits you well.
    I can completely understand the point with the hard study. For me it is the same. Learn, learn and again learn ...
    Feels like a never ending story.
    Enjoy the last period of study anyway!
