What I Wore: Velvet Playsuit

I have been in a lot of vintage shops in my time. A lot. If I’m ever in a new town or on a city break I find the vintage shops and have a good browse. My favourite ever vintage shop, coincidentally is the three storey vintage haven in Leicester made up of DollyMix Vintage and Pink Pidgeon. I don’t think I’ve ever been in there and not seen several things that I want, and the prices are very reasonable. I get bored with going into vintage shops that have rows and rows of denim jackets and floral dresses – if I wanted to dress the same as everyone else I wouldn’t be in a vintage shop! DollyMix and Pink Pidgeon are full of a variety of unique, interesting wearable pieces, and luckily for me they’re in my city! The most recent time I was there I picked up this velvet jumpsuit. It fits me really well. I love the cinched waist and it’s so warm – perfect for winter!

The only problem with this jumpsuit is that it’s tricky to wear things over the top! Hence why I’m wearing gloves to keep me warm instead. I know I wear these boots in almost all my outfit posts, but that’s because I wear them every day. I’m wearing them out and I need some new ones – does anyone have recommendations for somewhere I can buy good vegan winter boots?

Taking these photos in the golden afternoon sun was really fun, I’m trying to cherish the last of the autumn leaves. I hope you’ve had an excellent weekend!
