FOTD | with Limecrime Velvetines

I succumbed, I know. I succumbed to the gorgeousness that is the Limecrime Velvetines. From the moment I saw them online last year up till now, I am still in love with them, lol. When Funke of Gifty's Daughter announced on Instagram that they were now in stock, "they have to be mine", my heart screamed.
And mine they became. Well, just 2 out of the entire lot though - Black Velvet and Red Velvet. I'm not one for pink so convincing me to get Red Velvet instead of Pink velvet wasn't so hard.

I like to do either of these 2 extremes on a weekend - dress down (totally and completely up to flipflops) or dress up (from makeup to hair even to handbag). This particular weekend though, I decided to go for the latter. I had a couple of minutes to spare before heading out the door and these babies hadn't been properly swatched after my Instagram test-run with them so I gave them a go.
