Velvet is everything right now. So, for my birthday festivities this year, I couldn’t miss the opportunity to wear one of the biggest trends this season (along with a few others, of course).
As you guys know, slip dresses
have been everywhere since last spring and with colder temps, I can’t think of anything more perfect than a velvet slip dress
for nights out this fall/winter. In preparation for my birthday, I bought a super sexy midi slip dress in navy crushed velvet.
When was the last time you owned anything crushed velvet, right? But, with its sleek midi silhouette, this beauty is a modern take on a 90’s classic. To keep things edgy and interesting, I paired the dress with black suede ankle boots
and the perfect black leather motorcycle jacket
that Sis fortuitously bought me as a birthday gift this year (I was just thinking it was time for a motorcycle jacket update
since I’ve had mine for at least 5 years …thankfully, great pieces just don’t go out of style).
For accessories, I layered two gold choker necklaces,
a thin gold shimmery choker and a thick gold chain choker, both of which I picked up on my last trip to San Francisco while shopping around The Haight ,and my favorite thick gold cuff from Nandel Paris.
Finally, I carried my cobalt blue Prada camera bag
(that Bugsy bought me for my birthday last year) to compliment the color of the dress.
