MANCHESTER: VELVET AND BRICKS
Hi there! First post of 2017, yay!
As I lived in Manchester during one semester, it would have been a shame not to shoot a look in the city. So here it is. We chose a spot which would represent the mood of the city, with the unmissable red bricks. These are basically everywhere.
I bought this dress during my first time ever in Manchester last Summer in an amazing vintage shop with bargain prices: The Thrift Shop. I just love skater dresses in general and I completely fell for this deep blue velvet dress with its delicate lace collar.
Regarding the parka, it's been an investment that is worth it! I actually bought it in a mountain shop, so it's a waterproof and high-quality jacket, which turns out to be quite fashionable as well.
For me, this look represented quite well the mood of Manchester: urban, practical, a hint of old an a touch of modern. A mix-up of many influences. Manchester is home to so many cool bands such as The Stones Roses, The Smiths, Oasis, The Buzzcocks and so many more. It's a city that has a long and passionating history and you kind of feel the weight of history when walking down these streets.
