Velvet Obsession by SecretlySimone

All my life I have had secret obsessions over lots of little things, things that other people find weird, but I mostly keep them to myself. On Saturday while at the Venus and Mars open house, I came across this amazing black crushed velvet blouse, with ruffles and a low neckline, victorian, mmm. Mackenzie thinks I'm crazy for my intense love affair with anything velveteen, but I can't help it. I'm just drawn to it. I guess it kind of reminds me of holiday parties as a child, dressed up in black or red velvet jumpers, velvet hair bows and headbands are a MUST, and any kind of velvet accents on shoes make me swoon. (PS going back to Venus and Mars briefly, my crush on Karen Elson might just reach stalker level, especially with her right across the street from me at any given moment. kidding...kind of....)
So since it is the holiday season, and while others are pulling out their sequins and glitz (although I have nothing against a nice sparkly new years dress!), I will be reverting back to my inner child and prancing around in a tiny velveteen dress, with some pretty tights, a hair bow, and maybe some mary-janes. OH how lovely.
