Black Velvet

laughing in a black velvet wrap dress in front of palm muralIf you’re looking to fill the black velvet dress void in your life, ladies, then you’ve waited just long enough to score this dress for $17! Yes, you read that correctly. I love how versatile this dress is. First of all, it’s a wrap dress with tassel ties – how unique. I layered the dress with a striped turtleneck because I wanted a more casual/fancy day look into night look AND because it’s still cold out. The pink accessories add just the right amount of color and contrast and my mom’s earrings add a touch of vintage.

I also wore this dress to my friend’s holiday party, without the shirt, with a sequin jacket and silver heels. Don’t let me mislead you into thinking it’s warmer than it really is because I’m not wearing tights, but it has been more bearable being outside. There are so many ways to wear and layer this dress that it would be a shame if it wasn’t in your closet. Plus, it gives me major 90s nostalgia wearing it and that’s truly what I’m grateful for today.black velvet wrap dress in front of palm mural smiling in black velvet wrap dress with pink purse in front of palm mural portrait wearing black deep v velvet dress with black and white stripe shirt black velvet wrap dress with black and white stripe turtleneck and pink accessories in front of palm mural black velvet wrap dress in front of palm mural at eden chicagoWho What Wear: Dress // ZARA: Shoes (option) // Club Monaco: Clutch (option) // Old Navy: Shirt (option) // LOFT: Sunglasses // Earrings: Vintage from my mom (option)

Paris Is Burning

Based on the last couple of posts and my clear obsession with crop tops, let’s just say this is one of my favorite tops. It is a bit riskier than Monday’s top, but like I said, when you feel comfortable about a crop then go all out. With a statement top like this, I kept the rest of the look basic black, but definitely kept the party going with both arm and neck soirées.
