The Firecracker Dress is the hot older sister of The Golden Afternoon Dress. It's made of lush black crushed velvet with the same super cute peter pan collar. I love wearing it. It's very flattering on girls with a natural hour glass shape. It's no secret that I have a huge velvet crush this season, so these dresses make me so happy!
note: I never thought I would say this, but I feel like I'm blogging too much. So, I'm squeezing three posts into one to minimize a little bit! Thanks so much for being a part of my never-ending-dress-line-posting this week.♥
Here's 3 Ways To Wear It….
Look One is a great day to evening look. The cardigan and glasses keep it casual, but the the bangles and heels dress it up just enough! The Moorea Seal necklace is the perfect pop of color.♥
Look Two is nineties inspired! We paired a cute Guess denim vest with an oversized vintage turquoise cross. The knee highs and heels channel a tiny bit of Clueless inspiration (my favorite guilty pleasure movie of all time). "Carpe Diem, you looked hot in it!"
For Look Three Sarah is looking grown up with pulled back hair, a huge pennant necklace and a belted cardigan. Super pretty and classy. I love the texture that velvet adds to layers.
The Blue Velvet Dress was the original color that I wanted to use for the velvet mini dresses. Unfortunately the fabric was discontinued and we weren't able to produce it in this color. I love baby blue velvet and kept the name 'Blue Velvet' in honor of my David Lynch loving fiance. It's a little sad when fabric doesn't work out. I could write a whole post about it. We drove six hours to get fabric for the Wedding Cake Dress. Oh my…. what a story.
I didn't shoot three ways to wear this Blue Velvet Dress, but take a peek at the gold velvet stylings.
Ok, I'm off to stalk the bookstores for new magazines. XO, elsie
