I’m so, so in love with this top and skirt, which I bought with holiday money from my grandparents.
The shirt is baggier than I’d like–I’m in between two sizes on Pink Clove’s size chart, so I ordered up, and it’s definitely on the big side. The material is also surprisingly un-soft for velvet. It’s comfortable on the inside, but the outside, which brushes against my arms when I walk, is rough and a bit itchy. That said, I love it anyway, because it’s just so fabulous. And wearing my (also fabulous) sequined cardigan solves the itchy-arm problem.
While taking outfit pictures, I came across one of my feline friends, Vancouver. He’s such a sweet kitty. 🙂
I wore this outfit to a holiday caroling party, where it was quite well-received. And the party was wonderful: good friends, good food, the pure joy of raising our voices in song together.
Not to mention getting to hang out with Loki, the host family’s adorable Australian shepherd, and their two kitties. And at one of the houses where we stopped to sing songs, two very friendly, very fluffy golden retrievers came running out to greet us! 😀
