Velvet Crush :: Lace love & Mirror clutch

by wendy

Happy Friday everyone!

Sunset in Florence is absolutely breathtaking.  The way the light bounces from the ground and ricochets off of the buildings creates a beautiful golden hue that is heaven sent.  Another reason why we should move to Italy =)

I wore this dress to dinner, and afterwards to a fashion show yesterday.  Truth be told, I’m very hesitant about wearing velvet in general.  Personally, I fear that velvet ages me, so I tend to stay far away from it.  This dress calmed my reservations.  The lace panel and length gives it a youthful aura, while the lush texture adds a timeless elegance to the piece.  It really motivated me to play with velvet more.

Thank you so much for reading and have a great weekend!
