The Wire.

cross print blouse and velvet skirt - Romwe
bowler hat - eBay
creepers - Underground via eBay

There are two types of people - those who are hat people and those who are not. Recently I seem to have fallen into the former camp having acquired a steady collection of headwear over the past month or so. This burgundy bowler is the latest addition with me wearing my black equivalent so much that I decided to expand and get this one. Now for me this is a pretty typical weekday outfit for me as my go to combination for school is a shirt, a fun skater skirt and some form of chunky footwear. Today I decided to really play with two colours that look perfect together inspired by constant playing of the Les Miserables soundtrack specifically "Red and Black". I've always liked the combination of burgundy and black  as there's a lot to experiment with texture wise and it makes a nice change from all black. You all know how much I love crushed velvet and nothing beats it in a good crimson, especially when the light hits it and it shimmers. *has fashion feels* This blouse is super cool as it's an unexpected twist on a classic with the crosses making it more goth than girly. Which I can always deal with.

  11. Velvet is my favorite fabric! Especially vintage velvet, 'cause it has that used and dusty look, and slightly faded. Yours is the perfect mix!
