What I'm Wearing: Vintage Velvet

Ahhh velvet. A fabric that seems to fall in and out of fashion favor each year. I personally love this fabric because it really delivers a dose of drama. It's a beautiful, rich way to wear fall color. I bought this vintage dress at Salvation Army a year or so ago and didn't even wear it until today. With the ruched sleeves and beautiful color, I knew I had to have it and eventually would take it for a spin. I received a ton of compliments on this outfit, perhaps velvet really is back!

Velvet Dress: $3.99 from Salvation Army, Chandelier Earrings: $1.99 from Charlotte Russe, Vintage Gold Belt: $12 from Le Dominique Consignment, Rampage Faux Snake Pumps: I don't remember, I've had them a long time, Vintage Handbag: $5 from an Antique Shop

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
