Velvet Crush


Skirt - ASOS / Top - Topshop / Necklace - Miss Selfridge / Shoes - Jeffrey Campbell

I bought this skirt right after Christmas in the January sale, it was one of those jump with joy excited purchases..I couldn't believe what a bargain it was. Navy blue velvet = heaven to me, and then the slit down the side well it just makes it the perfect skirt. I was originally planning on wearing this skirt as a casual outfit but at 5ft2 this skirt unfortunately just doesn't work for me without heels...so it sat in my wardrobe for a while until I had an occasion to wear it. Teamed simply with my Topshop crop and my beautiful bargain sale necklace from Miss Selfridge it was perfect to wear for civilised cocktails with the girls. 

I'm in a bit of a bad way today, I woke up and have fainted twice, nothing to do with alcohol for once. I've been having numerous hospital appointments for these crazy allergic reactions I've been getting far too regularly at the minute so I'm thinking it could be to do with that...but a day in bed is needed all the same, I just seem to be drained of all energy. 

Hope you're all feeling better than me and have had a fab weekend x
