She wore blue (green) velvet


Double outfit bonus post, yay! A couple of looks from last week featuring my beautiful 1970's green velvet coat. Honestly, it is a gorgeous deep green, however my camera would like you to believe it is a teal/blue colour. Metallic silver gloves and turban, a tassel rope belt and a lace blouse with a charming ruffled collar complete the ensemble. This outfit actually won me an amazing prize with the V&A as part of their Street Style Competition on Facebook. I was ridiculously excited to win as I adore the V&A Museum; thankyou to the fashion curators for choosing me. 







Bonus cat-picture. I'm a crazy cat lady who tries to befriend every feline within reach. This little guy recently moved in nearby and keeps following me home.

Outfit two is a pretty standard Winter Russian Princess look with a huge furry Cossack hat, lace dress and patent booties. A polo-neck for warmth, velvet gloves and an antique belt complete the look. I bought the hat at the start of winter and it has pretty much left all my other fur hats redundant due to its immense warmth, size and general awesomeness. 






The hat looks so good and fuzzy backlit

well done Ms HoH! glad to see your style appreciated; you certainly deserved to win the comp. Hope the prizes are lots of fun!
Your turban look is very striking,especially with the grey gloves; grey accessories are my holy grail - I've found my grey kid opera gloves, but my real dream is quality grey shoes/boots - I've been looking for years..
PS.Thought you might enjoy viewing this post on turbans I came across; (it includes a not-so-old pic of Catherine Baba, of whose style I am a total fan.)

Thank you for modeling self love and being gracefully powerful. I read somewhere that I should find someone who models those things in order that I could learn to embody them myself. I imagine a world where everyone had self love (the healthy, empowering kind, not a destructive false kind), and what a wonderful world it would be. Self love is the best kind of white magic! PS. also obvi: I love your style!
