VELVET CRUSH




I am a loud and proud fan of velvet, so much I was head-over-heels when I stumbled upon these incredible shimmery blue velvet Dr. Martens on eBay. I have not seen anything like it! Velvet in Dr. Martens form - mind-blowing really. I do however, recall these black, velvet Dr. Martens on Style Scrapbook and this red pair in which I assume are part of the same line. You can say my heart skipped a beat when I saw it came in blue though. In the description and photos, the blue velvet has an emerald green shimmer when caught in the light - too cool for school! Immediately I dashed for my wallet and decided to treat my standard black Docs to new, more eccentric friends. I have a feeling I will be on the edge of my seat until they come knocking at my door. Though, to keep me sane until they arrive, I have styled a head-to-toe like you normally do ;)

1. The star of the show - blue shimmery velvet Dr. Martens 2. Emerald green knit 3. Crisp, collared white shirt (worn underneath) 4. Leather skin-tight pants 5. Black, circle shades 6. Kick ass gemstone ring 7. Hot pink lipstick

Hope you are all enjoying the remainder of the weekend!

  3. I can't think of anyone else who would suit those delicious docs more Lauren! Okay maybe delicious is not the right word but when I saw this post all I could think was OMG! They are beautiful, and you are a true stylist putting those pieces together. Looks like the perfect outfit to me! If you don't mind me asking...what program do you use to make these collages? I think they're a good idea! x x x
