Velvet Trousers / Leather Lapels / White Pointed Collar


Hello all!
I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas & New Year! As you can tell (and I do apologise for my longer-than-usual absence) I took the last 12 days or so to celebrate and spend time with friends and family. 
I feel like I've returned from a truly happy 12 days with quite a depressing, despondent colour palette - so I'd like to make sure you all know I am not trying to reflect any repressed emotions with my recent monocrhomical (is that a word?) outfits - I'm still as jolly as ever, despite this being a pointy white collar that Wednesday Addams or Karl Lagerfeld would be proud of. 
In regards to this outfit, I'm definitely developing quite a fetish for mixing velvet with almost anything, so when I spotted these black, manishly-tapered velvet trousers in Zara on my birthday I was sure they would go with a multitude of my pre-existing outfits. 
Finally, please share some links with me to any outfits you have been wearing over the festive season, I would absolutely love to see! 
 (and if you laughed at the word 'fetish' I am ashamed of you but secretly I laughed too.)

White Shirt, Printed Top, Velvet Trousers & Jacket : ZARA. Necklace : Topshop. Ring : Granny's. Glasses : Dior.

  8. I love this outfit, your shirt(s) is (are) so cool! I've definitely been coveting velvet lately too, it's such a lovely fabric for the festive season, although technically I suppose that season has finished now :(

  27. Lovely outfit! I reeeeally wanted this top (and still do but have given up...) when I saw it, but I left it and went back to get it the next day, when it was gone! Forever vanished from my life. It's definitely 'the one that got away'.
    What I'm trying to say is I'm extremely jealous of you right now.
