THAT green velvet dress.

Ever since I discovered the long sleeved American Apparel bodycon mini dress, I have been getting myself into trouble. The lyra-to-cotton ratio clings perfectly to my curves and despite being washed hundreds of times, my collection of these babies has stayed in excellent condition. My friends know that I live in them and have almost every colour! Paired with boots and a chunky-knit cardigan in the winter. Leather jacket, heels and earrings for a night out. You can wear these dresses so casually and dress them up just as easily. Simple, sexy, understated.

 

Then… I discovered these dresses were available in heavenly stretchy velvet – check them out here. I have not stopped stroking my velvety arms ever since.

I’m not sure what’s best about this shot… the unapologetic roll of tummy flab or my inability to stand up without using two walls for support. PROOF that 25 is old folks.

oooh my poor back.

Oooh my poor back.

 

I have styled this dress with some gorgeous Miu Miu esque leopard print Pony hair heels  and Stella and Dot gold hoops.

 

My old friend and surrogate uncle Richard Pascoe is my photographer. Most of Rich’s career has been in the music industry – management and marketing for more A-list acts than I have had manicures, before returning back to his first love of photography. Always on hand with his wisdom, advice and love of good food. Thanks Rich x
