Hello and Happiest of New Years again! I got the house to myself, and the first thing I did besides getting blog stuff done was CLEAN, CLEAN, AND CLEAN some more. Why? Well, when the whole family got sick It was what I had to do. The house fell apart with me being ill and the husband ill. SO, if this post is lateish, that is why. Things to get done. Got a lot of posts to do this week and I hope I can get them all done. It is a struggle. Playing Catch up.
ANd for playing catch around the house I wanted to wear something comfortable. Like this dress from ZAFUL Velvet and comfortable. The fabric is so soft and it is perfect for cool weather and it is at home in warm weather. Just ditch the boots. Add some sandals and there ya go! DONE. I wore a big statement necklace as well. And It think it ties the whole look together!
Velvet is such a huge trend this winter and it isn’t any wonder why. This fabric has been a fave for years, even beyond this one. During the Renaissance the wealthy wore this fabric as a status and back then there were not as many colors as now. It is truly a fabric trend that comes and goes but I hope it sticks around longer than Christmas time. There are so many ways to wear this lux fabric and so many great outfits have come out of it’s revival.
The Zaful velvet dress is so comfortable and I like the fit a lot I got it a bit baggy on purpose. I did go up a size or two to achieve this. SO, if you want to get a baggier look which can make for a more Casual feel for this dress, go up a size or two. The length is perfect. And it is a great green color! Very um(I’m so sorry) Legolas-ish. #sorrynotsorry
I was fighting with my boots today and with my state’s impeccable winter rainy weather. My hair as a result is like SCREW YOU I DO WHAT I WANT! Since being sick I lost a little weight and my boots are loose on the legs. Don’t worry friends, I will remedy that. I just wasn’t hungry during that awesome funk. Neither was my son or hubby. Anyways, these ALDO boots are my faves. They are true to form thigh high boots. And OH my gosh am I happy I got them when I did, because I find any excuse to wear these damn things!
I love this combination. A combo of green, black, and bling.
What do you like most about the velvet trend because I am having a velvet crush!
Steal my style!
