With velvet being all the rage at the moment, I was per-retty happy when I spotted this dress amongst the Oxfam rails. This dress has been homemade which is something I love finding whilst mooching around the second-hand shops. There’s something about knowing someone has put the time and effort into sitting down and making a piece unique for them which I find a little special. After well and truly catching the velvet bug I got on the Oxfam website and began scouting out a few more velvet favourites. By ‘scouting out’ I mean typing ‘velvet’ into the search bar and lusting after everything that was returned in the search – online shopping is just a little too easy for my bank balance. A few favourites returned in the search include a velvet deep red dress (festive, eh?), velvet tartan shorts and a crimson, velvet, slouchy t-shirt which I think would be perfect for December with a matching lip-stick – better get tweeting Candice, she’ll be able to help on that front!
