Favourite New OOTD – Rose Sweater & Green Velvet ♥

I took these photos this week and I think it has to be one of my favourite new outfits! Both the jumper and the skirt are new, and I didn’t even think of putting them together until trying to find something to pair the jumper with for these photos. Duh.. the leafy green bits match my new green velvet skater skirt perfectly! And two things I love more than anything else in the fashion world.. florals and velvet! Although I also love Peter Pan collars, but I wear them often enough and I wouldn’t want to go OTT now would I?
So anyway, I won a £50 voucher from MissGuided on Twitter in November. Well I actually won some boots but they took so long arranging the prize they were then sold out so offered me a nice voucher instead! Which was good because then I could buy what I liked, and I decided on this deep green velvet skirt as one of the items. It’s a bargain at only £13.99 I think, and it’s also much better quality than my Chinese velvet skirts, and it’s also longer. I don’t own anything in green, so I fancied a change and bringing a new colour into my ever growing wardrobe. They also do it in gorgeous burgundy red too. I love velvet, it’s so luxurious and I think it’s a perfect fabric for winter as it’s so thick and warm. I also find it quite flattering as it’s not flimsy. My boyfriend hates the feeling of it though, and Merlins hair just seems to be attracted to it! Eugh.
The rose print jumper was sent to me from Chicnova, who are a Hong Kong based web fashion store, selling the latest trends worldwide at affordable prices. The jumper is one size only, but I think it fits really well and it could also be worn oversized or more fitted. It has a ripped hemline and sleeves, which I’m not personally a fan of, but I can just tuck it into my skirt. The jumper is finely knitted and has a few sparkly golden threads throughout. I love the rose print, it’s so pretty. It’s a nice lightweight jumper, not thick and wintery, but I wore it with a nude vest underneath and it kept me warm. It’s available for £25 from Chicnova and it includes free shipping. I love this outfit, what do you think?

    When I was at uni I had a friend who had a velvet phobia. He was terrified of it…

    Anyway. Love the jumper! xx

    I have such a thing for velvet!! Many dresses etc in velvet, and shoes, but surprisingly no skirts! This looks amazing on you and I think a decent velvet skirt will be my next purchase! xxx

    I love Velvet too! I think it just adds something a bit extra to an outfit I'm all for different textures and patterns too :). This jumper is lovely too been on the look out for one to be honest, but can't justify £25 at the moment!

    Hi Victoria 🙂 I firstly wanted to say thank you for how inspiring your blog is (i.e. I have compiled some post ideas and WILL finally start one for good in the next week!!)… and also thank you for having yet another giveaway!

    [email protected]

    For items under $30, I really like this bag, though my boyfriend would complain about the number of items I own with studs on!! http://www.chicnova.com/black-oversized-canvas-totes-with-rivets-enbellish.html

    I also love the jumper… though isn't it very similar to the rose jumper you got from rockwithu?! That isn't a criticism in the slightest, it's me asking myself whether I can justify buying this one when I already bought the rockwithu one after loving your post about it!!!
