In case you missed it: velvet is back. Seriously. Velvet is one of the biggest trends of Fall 2017 and I am loving it. I wore this LVD for the Create Cultivate speaker dinner in Seattle and it was perfect. But do you know what makes it even more perfect? That it’s now my go-to dress for date night this Fall! Because I don’t know about you, but these day’s I’m all about anything that’s comfy AND I feel like a million bucks in during a party for two haha!
This dress fits like a glove and is super figure flattering. It’s also super comfortable which is always a nice bonus in a “dressy dress.” I absolutely love the below the knee length and the full length zipper is everything-it’s like built in jewelry! Would you believe me if I told you this dress is under $100? Crazy right!? You could find a million reasons to wear this dress out on date night. To a nice anniversary or birthday celebration dinner, to the ballet or the symphony, so many options! And with that price tag you might need two!
(UPDATE: We just realized that the knit version of this dress was linked at first rather than the velvet version. I’m so sorry about that guys! You can grab the knit version here for UNDER $100 or the velvet version here for only $20 more which is totally worth it!)
Since this was an important event I wore a high-end bag and heels with this dress. This YSL is a splurge for sure, but I’m kind of in love. I’ve had my eye on this one for a couple years now so I was pretty excited to finally add it to my wardrobe, and I knew it would get plenty of use! If you’re looking to splurge on a high-end bag it’s always a good to spend your pennies on a neutral that you can wear over and over again to make the investment worth it. This bag is such a pretty nude that goes with everything. The size is perfect for all your essentials and I love that it can be worn as a cross body or shoulder bag or carried as a clutch.
I love this sandal. The Nudistsong is an insanely beautiful shoe that I’ve turned to a million times for important events. They are such a classic. I love that they’re so subtle and flattering that they kind of disappear into the outfit. They’re also surprisingly pretty comfortable, unlike their evil twin stepsister haha.
