I couldn't resist this little crushed velvet number when I spotted it at Salvation Army last week. I am a sucker for anything short and babydoll cut. Also, I have developed a weird obsession with velvet recently. Maybe it's the dramatic new climate I am living in- because not much goes together better in my mind than snow and velvet!

I got a Velvet dress at a thrift shop near me awhile ago,
And have yet to wear it.
I think that you and Verionika have inspired me to wear my velvet digs finally!!

Happy New Year.
As well as good luck with your new house!!

This dress is gorgeous! There are so many cheap velvet dresses in the shops over here at the moment, but they're all itchy and too tight whereas this is lovely.

I am totally with you, and the velvet obsession. It just seems so rich, and lovely. My grandmother used to always tell me redheads can't wear red, I am one too, and this picture completely tears that idea to shreds.
