Lady-Like in Velvet Lace

(Skirt/Top/Necklace/Heels - Forever 21 | Clutch - Deux Lux)

Photos Taken by Rey T.
Edited by Me

Excited to kick off this new year with blogging about this outfit! After the New Year's Eve madness, all my friends and I decided to hibernate at home the day after. It wasn't till Monday morning that I lugged myself out of bed and had the chance to catch up with my friend Rey with brunch and a quick shoot. His work is amazing (link is above). This is another budget outfit, less than $70 including the heels. I love the feel of velvet, so when I got this skirt you can bet that I subconsciously felt my skirt the whole day. The fact that it is a hip-hugging bandage skirt somewhat elongated my petite frame and makes it seems like I have more legs than I really do. Paired it with this lace cropped tank, maroon mary-janes with the ankle cuffs, and accessorized with a chain-linked pearl necklace.  Result was a super feminine, lady-like look. Hope everyone had a great New Years!
