Blue Velvet

In Fashion, Look of the Day by Wicked Ying


Look of the Day — Today’s look is inspired by Lana del Rey’s song Blue Velvet. Needless to say, I made it my title for this particular post. I’ve only used this blazer once and it was at the time when I’m perpetually blogging the 365 looks project. After 2 years or so, I’m taking it out for another #ootd. One of the many reasons why I can’t seem to let some of my clothes go is because apart from its (sentimental?) value, I find ways to use them again. After all, I think style isn’t solely about trends, what’s hot and whatnot. It is about identity; finding who you are through the clothes you wear.


Tank top, Forever 21. Metallic shorts, The Second Shop. Belt, For Me. Blue velvet blazer, PINKaholic. Shoes, Memorata by CLN. Watch, Parfois.


“I wore Blue Velvet
Bluer than velvet was the night
Softer than satin was the light
From the stars

I wore Blue Velvet
Bluer than velvet were my eyes
Warmer than May my tender sighs
Love was ours

Ours the love I held tightly
Feelings the rapture grow
Like a flame burning brightly
But when he left
Gone was the glow of Blue Velvet…”



Now that the cold season is slowly bidding goodbye, we are transitioning from thick sweaters to layering something lightweight. Blazers seem to be the weapon of choice because they can be spring-y with the help of prints and color whilst providing unmatched comfort. What do you think?


Velvet x Metallic — I hope the combination works here. If it isn’t good enough for your liking, please spare me from the harsh judgment. Teehee! 😆


I’ve worn this blazer once HERE.



I went matchy-matchy with the shoes too. They’re the new ones Memorata sent me! What a coincidence that they opted to send me something in purple, my favorite color (just in case you didn’t know).



Stay wicked!
