Vintage velvet jacket

VINTAGE TREASURE! It really just took me a few stitches to make this beautiful uniform jacket fit my shoulders. It’s an original from the 80′s so of course it has shoulder pads (but they were different back then)! Paired with my favourite pair of slashed skinnies and the new killer-heels it is likely to become one of my favorite fall outfits.

Wine red velvet

BTW I found this little treasure on a pile of costumes in our basement. I guess it is one of the very few pieces that my mom never threw away – God knows why! She hates everything 80′s-looking.

Velvet jacket and suede shoes

I am totally in love with these shoes! The backside of the heel is ruched – soo beautiful! I would wear them day and night (if I could actually walk in them for longer than 5-10 minutes…).
