Velveteen Dreams

I was digging around in my old clothes bin for some recycled inspiration and found this magenta velvet top from 2 years ago. It was an impulse buy at the time, and as much as I secretly liked it, I didn't feel comfortable wearing it because my friend said she didn't like it very much.

Looking at it now with new eyes, I love everything about it. I think the best part is that it's got a bit of a vintage feel even though it's from the least vintage-y store ever (Express).
