This dress is a combination of three of my favorite things - velour, long sleeves, and a Merlot color. When I swept it up at the thrift store I thought it might be a 90s dress, but after doing some research on the brand it appears to have been made in the last few years. Not surprising, the way trends cycle.
I used to think of velvet and velour clothing as formal choices (unless it was a track suit :-P), but I've been incorporating it more into my everyday wardrobe in the last few years. It's great to have a wide range of textures to choose from, and velour adds a little bit of rock 'n roll to any outfit.
