Velvet Crush

Good morning, everyone! Today, I wanted to share a previously unpublished look I shot in NYC, which just happens to include yet another one of my favorite trends as of late—velvet! Velvet dresses, tops, boots, bags, I mean I love it all! I definitely loved wearing blush toned velvet pieces over the summer, but as we are transitioning to fall, I simply can’t get enough of darker and richer shades of velvet.

I know that we’re just half way through October, but I can’t help and think about my wardrobe for the holiday season. I think velvet dresses with interesting details are going to be a hit! I’m absolutely obsessed with the one I’m wearing in today’s post. It’s a perfect cocktail dress for the evening, but also such a good Holiday piece; I can’t wait to wear it again! The embellishments throughout the piece really dress it up and bring it to the next level.

 

Since I wanted to keep the focus on the dress, I decided to go with black accessories. Instead of going for the usual sandal or pump, I opted to wear a pair of thigh high boots. I love how the boots are just about meeting the dress and there’s not much leg showing, I think that’s key when wearing thigh high boots with a cocktail dress. For the bag, I decided to go with velvet to match the dress. I’m absolutely obsessed with this one! It’s so versatile and works so well as an evening bag but also perfect with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
