Greetings, everyone!

 My name is Zoey and I'm a 27 year old living in Southern California. I had been wanting to start a blog for many years now and finally took the plunge last year. Having great interests in fashion and photography, I thought it was a great way to mix the two elements together into something I currently thoroughly enjoy. My blog name, "The Velvet Panoply", came from the idea that my clothes (in the sense of style) are a part of me just as an armor is part of a knight. It's my way of self expression and I do it through the display of these photos.

If you've followed me long enough, you'll know that my style varies as I like to experiment with different looks.  As for inspiration, I'm greatly influenced by the 60s-90s. I really do adore anything dreamy, romantic and bursting with florals. I mainly purchase my clothes online but I do my fair share of thrifting through Etsy or thrift stores. I've been thrifting for years but only just started to fully explore it. I absolutely enjoy taking my sweet time perusing through all the racks, which can take hours at a time. I do go alone because not everyone is as enthusiastic as I am about thrifting and plus I can take as long as I want.

Although I don't take my own  photos - aside from the occasional shots that don't include me - I do go through all the selection and editing myself. I use only Lightroom as I don't particularly care about altering appearances and whatnot. Photos are currently taken with a Nikon D3200 and 35mm 1.8 lens, which I've had for years when I was more interested in street photography. Portrait style has since claimed my heart.

And there we have it! Thank you dearly for visiting. Have a lovely day!

Wishing you all the best,
