Velvet and Tassels

Velvet Maxi: Charity shop then DIYed
Boots: Ash
Belt: Vintage

I'm in love with this dress. I've had it in the wardrobe for about a year and never worn it, there was always something 'not quite right' about the way it looked and I could never put my finger on what it was. However, the other day I had a total brainwave to add the front splits ala THIS perfect for Love and Lemons dress I've been lusting after (but too pricey), and now it's one is my new fave. 

I treated myself to these beautiful black suede boots from Ash via UO  with a cheeky discount code a few weeks ago as an early Christmas present and they haven't left my feet since. They're the perfect little everyday boot and they go with everything. And of course had to keep this beautiful shawl I found when vintage handpicking for my store the other week, I've been hunting for the perfect oversized crochet tassle cardigan (which doesn't seem to exist) and this is the perfect substitute.
