She’s a Velvet Lady

She's A Velvet Lady 3

Thrifted* Dress, Shanghai Eclipse Pendant c/o JewelMint,
Forever 21* Earrings and Necklace, Black Tights/Wedges (old)

This was such an eventful and fun weekend for me! On Friday, I was so pumped to go to these blogger events, starting off with Lulu’s NYFW Style Studio. Since I knew that I wouldn’t have a lot of time after work to get ready, I laid out my outfit the night before.  After trying on a couple of different things, I settled on this little velvet mini dress. I found it at Saver’s for a steal and I absolutely love it! Plus, on a cold New York night, I knew that the long sleeves and thick velvet fabric would keep me warm. I’m also wearing this awesome necklace from Jewelmint that I think makes such a statement! It paired perfectly with my dress- I love the combination of black and gold. :)

The lovely Alex took these pictures using a neat little photography trick- she took one of her business cards and used it to diffuse the flash. I love that with that simple trick these pictures don’t have the harshness that comes with flash!  We also hung out with Jamillah and Katy the whole night, who were a blast as usual :) Check back for more pictures and details of the event on Wednesday!
