Blue Velvet.





DRESS - New Look 
NECKLACE & CARDIGAN - Topshop
RING - h&m
BELT - Primark 
LIPSTICK - Rimmel Shake Up Pink 

I bought this dress last week, as you can tell I love anything velvet at the moment! This is one of those dresses that you either really love (which I do!) or really hate.
I'm planning on maybe sewing a lace collar on when I'm home in a couple of weeks, to make it look like the Topshop playsuit I want.

I started my blog a year ago this week, which is pretty exciting! I'm honestly so pleased with how far it's come, so thank you to all my readers and followers - you are amazing! Hopefully this next year will bring even more exciting things. Happy birthday gh0stparties.com <3
