It's no secret this season that everyone is going mad for velvet, myself included. So far the only velvet things I own are hair accessories & bags. I saw these gorgeous dresses by TBA at ASOS, with their huge collars & lovely colours. Unfortunately, as well as being out of my price range (£150 each), they only go up to a size 14:(
Collars, esp peter pan collars, are also one of my favourite things this season. I just bought this beaded one, also from ASOS. Then my mind started thinking about making my own velvet dress. I ended up buying 4 metres of dark green velvet off eBay, which I plan to turn into my very own lovely version of the dress above. I plan to wear it with my new collar, getting the statement look.
