These colours burgundy & black are a match made in heaven

A fabric like velvet has so much allure. How I love this deep red colour, it’s just perfect with black. In a dress like this I feel like magic, tempting in velvet. The right accessories make my look complete. I got this purse during the Paul’s Boutique Exclusive Style Bloggers Event and it was love at first sight. I’ve got a soft spot for lacquer, especially in burgundy & black. This Julia Aston in Burgundy is my new crush.


The low cut neckline, the fitted sleeves and the flared skirt are the perfect fit if you ask me. For each look it’s all about the styling and how to combine it. I was planning to go for a clean look, as such a dress doesn’t need much. When it came in and I tried it on I decided to take it one step further. It was a perfect match, the high collar and wide Victorian sleeves of this top went perfect with this dress.

velvet is elegant & chic

To add a little romance I went for the lace tights and high heels.


The dress is made from a dense jersey which makes it have a lovely drape. When I wear velvet it has to be the right fit, not too tight to avoid showing too many humps and bumps. I’m wearing a size 48 which is on the wide side, but fits me well with the top underneath. This is a size XL, and it goes with most dresses I have. The tights I got already last year and is the perfect addition to such a stylish dress. The purse can be bought online with Brandfield, you can find the link below. They have the perfect accessoires.
