Seasons They Conspire

If I were to adopt a uniform this fall and winter it would pretty much consist of this dress. Only knowing that the variety in my closet would be a waste if I didn't use it keeps me wearing other pieces. Still on days when I barely want to leave the bed, it's nice to slip into this little piece of velvet wonder. This whole outfit is built from pieces I return to time and again; things I think I will be wearing for many years to come (as long as I don't accidentally destroy them!). Essentials for me don't really come down to quality; I have a number of pieces I've owned for years that are from high street brands or bought secondhand. It's more about pieces that fit well and make me feel good, which is a rather nebulous thing since feeling good isn't a purely physical characteristic...

Outfit details:
Gryphon trench coat
Ferragamo flats

It's funny - I wouldn't imagine velvet as being that comfy. But maybe I've just had really bad experiences with velvet. :p Either way, it looks really cute! Especially with the colored tights.

I would rock a pixie cut but I just can't--looks supercute on you though. I loooove anything velvet, especially in the wintertime--so soft and comfy! Your bag is awesome too!

Not that you care what randar stranger thinks, but your hair IS SO CUTE. Extremely flattering. I always think everyone looks cuter with short hair, but it really does change your whole look. Many people think this, but I agree that girls hide behind long hair. No hiding for you!!! You look so pretty!

That dress is gorgeous and so easy to combine with everything. I have a similar one (in terms of use) which is also black from H&M and it's always there. It's nice to have clothes you can always rely on :)
