Blushed velvet

10/28/11




Kimchi Blue velvet dress, Forever 21 sweater, H&M choker, Steve Madden wedges

In love with this velvety material and the blush color. The thing with LA weather, especially in the fall/"winter", is that you never know how you're gonna feel, I mean, consistently. You're cold one hour, and then you're feeling all sweaty the next. I thought it was perfectly convenient to pair this short velvet dress with black thigh highs... to you know, brace myself for the inconsistency that is California autumn.

Not that I don't wear boots any other time, but wearing MORE boots in the fall just seems as natural as pulling out your plaid shirts for the season. I'm particularly in love with these ones:

1. Jeffrey Campbell 'Northern Lights'
2. Rag & Bone 'Mid-Moto'
3. Jeffrey Campbell 'France Wrap'
4. B Brian Atwood 'Paramour'

First... how gorgeous is the wine color and little snakeskin detail on that Brian Atwood boot? Ugh. Most likely going to go with the first one (I wish I could afford the Rag & Bone pair). JC knocked the beautiful, studded Chloe boots to a capital T. Let's face it, I'll never, ever, spend $1,200 on any pair of shoes... these JC ones, at $1,000 cheaper, will suffice.

thereafterish said...

So jealous of how damn cute you are right now.
That's what I find so perfect about CA weather. It has enough cold to be just cold enough, so you can wear scarves and sweaters and long socks, but not so cold that you can't be cute in skirts and shorts and boots and tights.

BUT NO. I live in Detroit, where it's winter already (hello, 35F! >:T ), and then I'm moving to Hawaii, where it's summer ALLTHETIME....

No in between. A girl can't get no satisfaction.

The velvet dress is so beautiful, especially the pink color of it! Love how you paired it with the sweater, thigh highs, and boots. I agree, Cali Autumn is so unpredictable and it makes it really hard to dress appropriately for it! I'm loving those Rag & Bone booties, as well as the JC ones
