"BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM. I'M GONNA SHOT YOU RIGHT DOWN".

Listening to: Boom Boom- John Lee Hooker


Velvet play suit: Primark (but off eBay)
Tights; Primark
Plimsolls: Not sure
Necklace: Topshop
Bag: River Island
Jacket: DIY
Felt Bowler: H&M

I find it hard to wear play suits- not only because I get confused with taking the m on and off for the loo, but because I very rarely find a style that compliments my shape (having to buy one to fit over  my boobs will billow out everywhere else). They always end up sort of sack like unless they are perfectly shaped to go in at the waist. So picking up this beautiful velvet play suit was a bit of a surprise.

I love velvet and at least 3 times a week I search through eBay for the latest velvet listings- and stumbling upon this was a lovely surprise. I saw in in store a few years ago when it was being sold and I had to have it then- but the life of a student nurse had no time for pretty clothes (I didn't buy anything new for over 2 years!). But spotting it on eBay- I HAD to have it; and would have bidded far over its worth.

SO MUCH LOVE FOR ONE ITEM!!!!!

In my mind I can wear it thousands of ways- dressed up with heels, with flats and a pretty jacket to shop or slobbing round my boyfriends in an over sized knitted jumper (which was how the day ended). What do you guys think?

Its probably only fair to share with you all the other velvet items I am lusting over on eBay at present. The velvet leggings are almost a constant on my watch list yet I still have not yet got round to buying them- I'm still on the fence; and as of late i have been lusting over several skater skirts too, and as recently as yesterday- this beautiful velvet dress.

  8. oh my god, that's the exact same playsuit I have! haha! spooky :) I love it so much, it's the perfect fit for everyone.
    at the moment I'm lusting after a vintage black velvet dress with a big white lace collar.... or maybe navy blue. I have this picture of it in my head but can't find anything similar anywhere. Boo.
    Everytime I see your new tattoos in pics I get major tattoo envy!

  16. I am so close to going onto ebay and finding this in my size but I have issues with playsuits that are opposite to yours, in that my hips are too wide for the general size that fits the rest of me.
    It looks so good on you though!

    Good Morning Angel.
