Instagram, this is all your fault! Here in Australia we’re coming into spring, not autumn, so the chance of wearing these incredible red velvet goodies is diminishing daily, but my Instagram feed is so full of red velvet!
And no, I’m not talking cake, or anything remotely edible, I’m talking FASHION! Jackets, dresses, pants, shoes, bags and, my personal favourite – boots! I’m not saying that red velvet footwear is necessarily the most practical item in the wardrobe, but by golly, they’re just gorgeous!
Red velvet has always been one of my favourites ever since having a gorgeous dark red velvet Christmas dress when I was around 4 or 5 years old. Since I’ve been all grown up, a red velvet fitted blazer has been on my wish list for as long as I can remember, but I’ve never quite managed to get hold of one. I will. One day.
There’s just something about the rich, soft look of velvet, and how the colour and texture changes in different lights. From jackets to shoes to bags, there are so many fabulous products out there.
Here are just a few items I’ve been drooling over. I guess I’ll have to wait for next winter, and I don’t care if red isn’t the colour of the season next year, I’m doing it anyway!
While I love all of the items below, on a more practical level, I think the flats on the left of the 2nd row down would be my fave. What about you?
