Outfit|Styling a Velvet Pleated Maxi Skirt

Velvet has made a major comeback into the fashion scene and I knew I just had to get a velvet item in my wardrobe. I decided to go for this velvet maxi skirt with pleats because it incorporates two of the trends on my wishlist.

Do you guys remember in my post where I talked about Trends I would like to rock soon, Pleats were my number one on the list and thanks to the guys at Zaful, I got a chance to rock it.


When the guys at Zaful contacted me, I was a bit skeptical due to the fact that it was a Chinese company and I went online to search for reviews and the reviews were just a bit meh, some good and some bad. I decided to give them a listening ear and ordered this maxi pleated skirt and the tote bag.The bell sleeve top I also ordered seemed of great quality but they were not true to size, way too large.

I can say that I am very satisfied with the skirt and the tote bag as they actually looked like what was advertised on the website.

In this outfit, I also followed the three color rule to dressing chic. (I talked about it more extensively in this post). I am actually wearing just two colors, the ‘rose-goldey’ metallic color and the blue on my shoes and then the rest are mainly neutral colors.



Who else is working this week with giant strides like mine?

Also, I’m feeling very happy about how comfortable I am getting in front of the camera. It might take a little more time but I know I’m getting there lol. Who else practices poses in front of the mirror before shooting?
