Molten Gold & Rain



A recent personal trend I've noticed: I seem to gravitate toward velvet on rainy days. So when I came to terms that my day off was to be a distinctly wet one, out came the velvet. The particular piece I chose was the Club Monaco amber velvet skirt I received for Christmas. It reminds me of molten gold. I paired it with two items I purchased last year in Halifax: my golden leaf necklace & grey shoulder cut-out top. I love the silkiness of the top, the unique shoulder detail, & the rich texture of the skirt. 


In terms of light & photo quality I'll be the first to admit that these are far from my favourites. But I promised you an outfit photo, & unfortunately this is all the rain allowed for! I've been wanting to share more outfits with you but between time conflicts & weather mishaps it just hasn't been a possibility as of late. Rather than simply hope for improvements I've been thinking about getting a wireless remote so I'll be able to take my own photos. Not sure how it'll work out but it's certainly worth a try! Do any of you take your photos this way? I'd love some feedback/suggestions :)




I was wearing:
Grey cut-out top - Lush (via Envy)
Amber velvet skirt - Club Monaco
Gold Leaf Necklace - Girly Peepshow Boutique
Hammered Ring - Forever 21
Paloma wedges - Dolce Vita

  1. I think that velvet is lovely to wear on cold and rainy days, because it's a warmish material. I need to get a velvet skirt, it's been on my shopping list for a while now but I just can't find one anywhere - I'm considering just going thrifting and finding one that way! The colour of your skirt is gorgeous, it goes with the grey top perfectly. xo
