Dark Velvet

Photos by Elizabeth Jane Ruben

Last week when I went to visit the H&M showroom, I was allowed to pick one item to incorporate it in a look for my blog and I went for this jacket. Everything about it is perfect - the material, the detailing, the shape.. It's definitely a statement piece which you can wear with so many things and it will instantly finish off the look. I've already worn it a few times and have at least one other outfit I'd love to post with this jacket in the near future :))) The shirt dress is from the new H&M collection as well, I borrowed it for these photos as I loved the way it looked together! I think that with the simple sandal heels and red lipstick this makes a great look for a nice event where you would want to dress up slightly. Both items will be available in stores worldwide from 5th September (so soon!) - the jacket will retail for 99 EUR (around 70 LVL / 85 GPB) and the shirt will retail for 40 EUR (around 34 GPB).
The heels I received a few weeks ago thanks to Boohoo - I was trying really hard not to cave into the Zara sandal heel obsession, but at some point I knew I wanted some lookalikes (obviously because Zara doesn't sell them anymore for over a year now). I would recommend you go a size down if you order this particular pair. They're just slightly too big on me but the ankle strap does work wonders!
