the touch of velvet


Dress: I made it! Similar here for under $30! | Boots: similar | Clutch: similarOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you had to pick one trend as “the biggest trend of the season” it’s definitely velvet. So when I was digging through my closet the other day, feeling like I had nothing to wear, I found this cute little thing that I forgot about!

Do you do what I do: feel like you have nothing to wear and then dig a little and find all those hidden gems?!

I’ve had this dress for about 5 years now. I made it while I was back in grad school and I love how it flatters.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I also appreciate the detail I added on the neckline, but I forgot to get a close up of it. All I did was use extra fabric to create a design on the chest. You can see it a little in the first two pictures.


deep in thought, lol

If you’re on the hunt for OTK boots, the pair I linked above are a great price. I don’t have that exact pair, but mine are very similar looking (and also very comfortable in spite of having a pretty significant heel)! The dress I linked is the exact color as mine and is a very flattering fit for like every body type!

A dress like this is perfect for this time of year. You’ll get infinite wear out of it and you’ll be happy to pull it out again every year! I know I am!

What’s your favorite trend this season?
