I hope you are having a great week. You might notice something different about my hair. That’s right we went fully dark this time. I wanted the darker base color to be the more dominant color and then we’ll go back in with some mocha balayage for dimension. I love this base color so much I had to have it the one color just for fun. However, my family thinks my hair is black & won’t stop teasing. 🙂I have had this dress for awhile from Avenue. I have been meaning to blog about this dress, I actually wore it for this past Thanksgiving. I bought it after I saw Liz from With Wonder & Whimsy do a post about her jewel-toned purple velvet dress from their line. I wanted to buy that one, but then I ran across this dress & had to get it.
First off I love that the sleeves are long, flared, and have a lace black detailing. That is one of my favorite things in a dress or shirt. I must have fun sleeves! I also love that it is maroon & velvet, these photos almost don’t do the color justice. It is a velvet floral pattern with a black underlay. I really do love the fit and think it is comfortable. The only problem I have is it does make me look boxy, so by adding a vest and belt it gave me some shape!
I did add accessories from Francesca’s! I love this belt from them and the earrings are classic. I had ordered a statement necklace to go with this but they ran out, I do like this small pearl long necklace in its place.
Hope you enjoyed!
