Daily Dose: Velvet Underground

 It's been a while since my last post, and I apologize sincerely for that!  This has been a transition time for me in terms of school, and it's been a little bit crazy.  I've had this post half done for a long while, but just couldn't find the time to finish it up.  This illustration is not my best work; that's part of why there's been such a lag on publishing this post.   

This blazer is actually made of velvet, and I found it at a Goodwill in Hollywood for $5.  It's been a good addition to my wardrobe and surprisingly versatile, considering it's 1) purple and 2) velvet.  The shirt I'm wearing underneath is something I believe is now being referred to as a 'cold shoulder' top, where the shoulders are cut out.  It's cool, but I find that it's sometimes hard not to look too 80's with it.  The shorts are a kind of silky material and are pretty short, but I love them with tights.  I think I've become addicted to shorts and tights to be honest.  I find it a very fresh look, and it's pretty easy to put together.

I bought this necklace for my mom, and got her a matching bracelet and ring, and of course I promptly borrowed it for this outfit.  It's a cool statement necklace, but since I bought it, I've seen it in a billion versions in a bunch of different stores!  I'm a bit put out by that. xD  And lastly, the shoes.  I've bought two giant blocky platform wedge heels lately, and I don't know why.  I don't know why I'm so drawn to weird items of clothing lately.  My theory is that my closet is basically where it should be now, more or less-- I have a good variety of clothing and want for nothing, so to speak.  The problem is that I still want things-- crazy things.  Anyways, these are super-cool red suede wedges that I think add an edge to any outfit.
