Do not be alarmed by that first image. Yes it is velvet. Yes it is purple velvet, Yes it is a purple velvet dress with shoulder pads. Now that we’ve gotten past that, I think there’s just something so rich about jewel tones, and I think the color is just absolutely magical! So let’s get down to the outfit. This is the second look of the Fall LookBook I mentioned in my last post. The dress is from a thrift store. I spotted it on the rack and immediately fell in love, but then I picked it up and saw it was a size 24. If you can’t tell, I’m not a size 24. Nonetheless, I bought it, pinned it up, took the seams in, hiked up the slit (Yes I live for clothing drama), and voila. The belt is also thrifted, shoes are from torrid, and the lips are Rebel by MAC. Hope you all enjoy this look, and I’ll see you soon!
