Bustier-like top - Macy's sale rack for $5; Self-made skirt; Thrifted belt; Velvet wedges
Does the mere thought of velvet conjure a memory of your childhood, the days in which your mother dressed you and your sibling(s) in matching velvet ensembles to take pictures with the Santa Claus in your local mall? Does it do that for me? I shall never tell. Luckily, I will revel in the sweet success of finding a great pair of velvet wedges at a horrid mall store I worked at long ago. Please note, this store is the last place I'd ever expect to find a decent pair of affordable shoes. Lo and behold, I did. For $28, I couldn't not buy them. They vaguely remind me of those amazing Topshop Wisteria wedges. Perhaps a DIY is in order to turn these lovelies into a Wisteria-inspired piece.
