Happy March!

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.

  1. Terrific outfit, sweet dear. Is there any more gorgeous fabric that deep, soulful burgundy velvet? I could happily live in day in and day out.

  2. Love that color. Merlot is one of my favorites both in and out of the glass. ;)

  3. This dress is just amazing!

  4. I can see why you would want to incorporate this into your everyday wear; it is lovely. You look like the heroine of a story, somehow.

  5. Love the velvet and crochet combo!
