The Golden Afternoon Dress



My spring dress line for Red Velvet launches in just one week, on March 1st. Between now and then I'll be revealing a dress from the collection, here on my blog, every single day!

This dress is called Golden Afternoon. It's made of lush gold velvet and has a pretty peter pan collar. This design comes in black too. Stay tuned for '3 Ways To Wear It' later today!

  • Ah, what a wonderful dress! I’m a huge Lewis Carroll fan, so I have to ask if the name of the dress has anything to do with his poem “All In the Golden Afternoon”?

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I love those collars! I had a 70’s full-length black dress with the white collar – wore it to death 😉

  • Thanks for the information on your dress line regarding sizes…i really appreciate it! Maybe fitting into one of RVA’s creations is the motivation i need to lose some more weight…i can’t blame my baby forever can i? You have already inspired me to wear skirts and dresses again (or ever)! Thanks Elsie…you are pretty amazing!

  • hey! i really love vintage fashion and this gotta be the best spring outfit i’ve seen this year! i love your dress, the socks are really cute on you and you finish it off with a nice summery straw hat! i hope you enjoyed wearing this and got very good compliments! thanks for showing your style! 🙂

  • Will you be doing close-ups of the hem and the edges of the collar? It might just be the lighting but it looks like the velvet has been pulled a little bit.

  • In LOVE! Such a pretty dress & I’m in love with the 3 Ways To Wear It feature! <3

  • The dress is amazingly cute, even if I won’t be able to get one as I also would need an XL…

    Can you tell me what brand/model are the shoes she’s wearing? Looove them too

  • Meg, We did as many sizes as possible for this collection (considering our budget and time constraints, of course). There are three designs that are flattering on *all* figures, each is produced in Small-Large. We are also doing two T-Shirt Dress designs that come in Small-XL next week! I hope you can find a dress that’s perfect for you!

    Thanks for all the kind and positive comments!! They mean the world to me. Elsie
