Pearls and Velvet.




Dress: c/o Pink Clove. Necklace: Collectif. Clutch: Next. Coat: Marisota (old)

The lovely team over at Pink Clove offered me the chance to choose an item from the website to show you guys how I'd style it up and initally I was drawn to a lovely animal print number, which no doubt you'll be seeing shortly on here as I bought it for myself after dreaming about it (that's when I know I NEED something!) but I ended up deciding up on this beautiful sweetheart neckline bardot velvet dress. Now I don't know about you but I utterly adore velvet during Autmn/Winter. It's warm but most importantly feels luxorious and adds that little bit of glamour to your life.

I decided to go pretty vintage with this look as I thought it would work really well with the dress particularly the neckline. When ordering things lately I've been sizing up now I'm not sure if it's that I've gained weight or sizing but with Pink Clove I fit the size 20 in their dresses perfectly and vast majority also have stretch so they certainly have some breathing room, to boot it's also a very comfortable dress so I could be in it all night without it irritating me. I haven't worn the coat pictured for nearly a year but I think it works really well with the rich colour of the dress and as it's still freezing it was definitely needed! Under the dress I popped on a petticoat to add a little more defiinition and shape to the skirt, added my reproduction pearls and cute playing card clutch bag I picked up in the Next sale and it's almost good to go. I finished with my usual simple face of mascara and a red lip to pull the outfit all together.

Prior to this dress I hadn't tried anything from Pink Clove but I've been so impressed that since then I've added 2 more pieces (via ASOS)  to my ever goaning wardrobe.
What have you tried from Pink Clove and loved?

  3. LOVE it! When I got married (forever ago!) this was exactly what I wanted as a wedding dress for a winter civil wedding, but nobody had one! You always look beautiful, but I am a major sucker for some velvet!
