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)

Unconfined

striped wall in chicagoI consider myself to be unconfined in all aspects of my life. I like to be different and do my own thing. My blog and all my social media truly reflect my life. I’m having fun living the life I chose and trying to make the best out of every day even when I think things are going bad, I smile and think how lucky I am; this I wouldn’t change for anything. Of course I keep things private, but that’s just because I’m sure you don’t want to know everything about me – haha.

It’s good to have your own identity because sometimes in the blog world you forget the bigger picture and what is truly important. I have found that the excess noise is something that I don’t pay attention to and all it is is noise. The vast reality is being myself and doing what I want is very important to me. My voice is often silenced because of my profession, but trust me when I say I break through barriers and fight for great causes and for the well being of all behind the scenes. being unconfinedsmiling in a polka dot sheer shirtlooking to the sidewalking in chicagopurple bow handbag with chainlaughing and looking to the sidesmiling and looking to the sidesmirking in chicagobriskly struttingGap: Jacket (option)  // Gap Body: Bra (option) // Madden: Booties (option) // DVF: Shirt (option) // Loft: Sunglasses // DeJour (Australian): Jeans (option) // Zara (old): Handbag: (option) // DKNY (old): Belt
