wearing: red sweater coat and velvet boots

There's so many things I love about this outfit. It's probably my favorite outfit I've put together in a long while. Let's start with this sweater/coat/thing. I found it at a thrift store in Green Bay last week aaaaand it's amazing. It long like a coat and drape-y kind of like a dress at the bottom. Also, it's warm like a sweater should be, and the length makes tiny skirts like this one more appropriate in the chilly weather (however, the lack of pockets is definitely disturbing). I kind of want to wear it all the time. Doesn't it look like this furry collar was made for it? It works. Moving on. This hat is pretty much the quintessential fedora. It's classic. It works with everything. And, finally, please give it up for these velvet boots. Yes, velvet. Velvet boots. I can't tell you how many times I've passed up Doc Marten-esque boots, even if they were really neat, because they weren't quite right. But when I saw these bad boys I knew that the reason I hadn't bought any before was because I was meant to have these (I mean, I do have a little thing for velvet). Oh, and dark lips, too. I've been wearing lipstick a lot more these past few months and I really like it. I've finally found a red that suits me (has a blue undertone rather than an orange one), it's Revlon's Wine With Everything.

I totally thought about getting those velvet boots! Man! Now I wish I would've bought them. Oh well....maybe my H&M still has them.
Note to self: Go look for velvet boots.
