I’m so glad I bought this velvet top from Next as I love the lace detail against the velvet and it looks great for daytime or evening. The colour is unusual… somewhere between a dusky pink and light brownish… and it looks good with either black or cream.
It looks like the ‘lace detail’ is still popular moving into Spring, so I’ll be able to keep wearing this over the next few months.. (it washes beautifully – I wouldn’t want you to get the wrong impression!)
Although this velvet top is no longer showing on the NEXT website, there are lots of lovely alternative lace detail is still popular moving into the Spring as seen in this example from NEXT:
So maybe this lace detail t-shirt from Dorothy Perkins and available at Debenhams on Sale for just £9.60 may be better!
That lace on the sleeves adds a bit of glamour whilst also covering the dreaded batwings!! What do you think?
As for makeup, I’m going with the softer ‘dewy’ look for the Spring and toning down from the ‘red’ lips of winter to a softer rose pink. This particular lipstick is from Christian Dior (sorry – can’t read the colour as I’ve had it a while..). I’m sticking with the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation applied with a ‘stippling brush’ so it’s not quite so heavy and gives a softer look whilst still covering my ‘imperfections’! (Stippling brush – haha – hubby would tell you it’s a ‘trowel’!!)
And of course.. if we’re talking a ‘bit of fun’ – You can’t beat some soft gold shoes and what do you think of my beret! Not sure why my family laugh when I wear it!!!
Oh and talking of Makeup…. Is it Just Me?
