Blue Velvet

Monday, December 10, 2012 120 0

Dress: Costa Blanca. Jacket: Club Monaco. Gloves: via Macy’s. Shoes: Nine West. Tights: Hue (similar). Handbag: Chanel. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I purchased this vibrant blue velvet dress many years ago on sale for only $5. . .yes, that’s right. . .$5!  I just love the soft, velvety fabric, the bright blue hue, and the polka dot mesh neckline.  This dress is definitely perfect for the holiday season.  So many people commented that I looked “very festive” when I wore it last week to work.  I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

    I love it – totally festive but not in an obvious way (i.e. red and green) such a nice change of pace!
