What an amazing weekend including a super fun birthday and a masquerade soiree night full of arts, and of course some shopping. I was wearing my new velvet dress from H&M and was dying to debut it... especially, since it was my first time wearing velvet.
As I always do before trying something new, I turn to the "go-to"site... style.com to seek some inspiration. Here are some of my favorite picks:
I adore my new silver velvet dress from H&M, it is very soft and the color is beautiful... but my favorite part is the open back. I loved the little details that give the dress an evening feel. Velvet is perfect for fall and winter - warm and with deep hues. I would love to get a pair of velvet trousers, similar to the ones seen at Moschino ( the last picture above).
I considered wearing an opaque pair of gray or black tights, but both overwhelmed the look. So I settled for sheer. Above, I wore my favorite Mackage leather jacket, Kors booties and my new leopard scarf :) The outfit was perfect for a friend's birthday party and most important is that I felt great in it and stayed warm during the cold and rainy evening!
I am wearing:
H&M Velvet Dress
Michael Kors booties
Coach Patent Leather Wristlet
Donna Karan panty hose
