Cue velvet brocade pants
So in a follow up to my last diary entry, I bought those textured Cue pants (above). All velvet brocade and skinny legs. I had to wear them in over the weekend, the Easter Weekend at that so what were once skin tight Kramer jeans have kindly moulded to my Easter egg consuming body. While I love the way they look, the muted colours kindly complimenting/clashing wonderfully with pretty much every top I own, I love they way they feel more. I’ve caught myself stroking my back pocket a number of times so far. Not because I love my booty (it a’ight *click*), but I just can’t get enough of that soft, furry texture.
It got me thinking about my own style. Perusing my closet with thumb and forefinger I’ve come to realise that what brings my closet together is not a common style, but texture. There’s fur. Lots of fur. Too much fur for a girl living in Queensland. There’s lace. Sequins, beads, suede and velvet in a myriad of forms; crushed, devore, panne. Above are just a few of my favourites. You can look, but don’t touch.
