Crushed Velvet

One of my favorite trends in the winter is velvet, especially velvet dresses. Below I am wearing a gorgeous crushed velvet dress in the color royal blue from the brand NBD. If you haven’t heard of them, you must check them out. They make amazing dresses. Anyways, what I love most about this dress is the POCKETS! I actually had no idea their were pockets on this dress until it arrived in the mail. It’s extremely comfy and can be paired with so many different kinds of heels like lace up heels, sock booties or thigh-high heels… the options are endless with this gorgeous dress. 23559641_10159490674410363_4990300197985138832_n.jpg23517449_10159490674405363_4616675354326049498_n.jpg

Thanksgiving Outfits

Since Thanksgiving is fast approaching I thought I would share some cute outfit ideas to wear on Thanksgiving! Since I live in Wisconsin, it has become much colder and will only get worse.. sigh. But my favorite part about the weather getting colder is all the fashion trends that come with season changes! Some of my absolute favorite winter trends right now are velvet and suede pieces. One of my favorite websites to get ideas for outfits and styles is http://www.Revolve.com if you haven’t been before, you must! As a fresh out of college grad I definitely cannot afford their clothing at the moment, (i.e. I resort to putting their items on my christmas list or saving my money for that one special item).

But, I absolutely adore this crushed red velvet skirt by BLANKNYC pictured below.8931049afec3f74dcc29962b7efb7cad

Here is the link to the skirt if you love it too… Velvet Skirt

Again similar cheaper crushed velvet skirts can be found here at Forever 21MissGuided and AKIRA Chicago

I love the idea of pairing this skirt with a distressed sweater and a cute pair of over the knee suede boots! The boots in the picture are the Highstreet Suede Boot by Stuart Weitzman which are priced at $798 (One of my absolute favorite designers but way out of my price range). You can find similar boots at Charlotte Russe, Forever 21 and AKIRA Chicago for a fraction of the price.

What do you guys love to wear on Thanksgiving?

Cheers!
