All Things Velvet

Hello friends! I hope you guys are having a great week!

Now that thanksgiving is over we can start seriously shopping for all of the holiday things. That includes outfits for any holiday parties you might have coming up.

Red Satin Suit

Jacket: Leith // Pants: Leith // Bag: Celine // Heels(similar): Sam Edelman

Hello my lovely readers! Today I wanted to share this Red Satin Suit with you guys. This was really out of my fashion comfort zone but once I tried it on I was in love! It’s so perfect for those upcoming holiday parties you’ll be attending. Did I mention it’s on sale making the set under 80!? #score

Now onto my bag, how many of you love high end designer bags but not the price tag? I know that’s how I feel! Trendlee is a website that sells gently used designer handbags for a fraction of the price. They carry brands like Chanel, Gucci, Hermès, Chloe and Celine. The bag I’m carrying in these photos is a Celine Phantom from Trendlee, isn’t it so chic!?

Blue Velvet Wrap Dress

Dress: Tularosa // Boots: Steve Madden // Necklace: David Yurman // Ring: David Yurman // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

Hello and happy Sunday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is this week already, which means Christmas is quickly approahing. That being said, I thought I’d get started on sharing some holiday dressing inspiration!

My go-to this season for holiday parties is velvet dresses. There’s something about them that always looks so chic and sophisticated, while still being festive. I ordered this Tularosa dress from Nordstrom and I am in love! The velevet feels super expensive but the dress is under 160. I’m usually not a navy gal but this color is even more beautiful and rich in person than online! I paired the dress with my black Steve Madden over the knee boots and my velvet Rebecca Minkoff bag. Because you can never have too much velvet, right!?
