So funny story, I was out with my parents at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this past weekend and when I showed them this dress they thought I was crazy! the look on their faces was priceless, one I’ll never forget! Even funnier, when I got home and pulled the dress out of the neatly packaged garment bag, my boyfriend said: “Oh, wow babe I love the robe”. I am chuckling now while writing this.
The minute I put the dress on, Kenny (my boyfriend) said it was a lot prettier on than sitting on the hanger and he loved it. Once I shared these photos with my mom she said the exact same thing. So, never judge a book by its cover. It is truly how you style things and if you love and feel confident in it, you will pull it off.
This dress stole my heart the minute I saw it.Velvet for me is one of those timeless, classic, luxurious fabrics that you can do so much with. It’s an easy way to make a look more sophisticated and sleek. As hard as it is to think about Fall/Winter I am slowing starting to incorporate fall pieces into my wardrobe and taking advantage of the #nsale prices while I can. I love this dress for its beautiful color and vintage vibes. I dressed it up here with my favorite black pumps and envision pairing it with a light jacket for fall and pairing it with black tights and boots for winter.
