Red Velvet


I finally got my maroon-y wine platforms from H&M shipped out from back home and couldn’t wait to get them on my feetsies.
Truly, I have such a fond appreciation for platform shoes in all their forms. When I was younger my mom would let me wear this one pair of KILLER strappy sandals she had. Green velvet with a funky sort of glittery pattern and the most serious platform you’ve ever seen. She wore those shoes to her first Bowie concert. They don’t mess around. So when I encountered these wine sneakers, I was thrilled to be able to incorporate not only platforms but velvet into my casual daily outfits.
I thought it would be fitting to pair these sweet velvet babies with a well worn Velvet Underground tee for a look I wore to run errands and work at home. Even though I rocked those with some high rise vintage GAP shorts, I tossed one of the beau’s VANS button-ups on top to help fight any breezes.
All in all, this outfit was just enough grunge (I tossed on a gray beanie when I went out), and the right amount of vintage. Most of the day I tied the button-up around my waist and channeled my inner 90’s kid. It was comfy without compromising my look or leaving me having to carry anything – always a plus.
