Since the beginning of fall, I have had it in my head that I needed a velvet dress for the holidays. I have always been a fan of velvet and was so excited to see that it was going to be trendy for fall and winter. There is something about a black velvet dress and the holiday season that I can’t get enough of.

Black Velvet Dress
I think my love for black velvet dresses started when I was four and was the flower girl in my aunt and uncle’s December wedding. I wore a gorgeous black velvet dress and still remember it to this day. Fast forward nearly 26 years and I still love a black velvet dress this time of the year. I spotted this dress a few months ago and originally planned to wear it for my 30th birthday celebration. The weather was still pretty warm so I decided to hold off until the holidays.
There are so many things to love about this dress besides the gorgeous velvet: the bell sleeves, ruffle hem and of course the exposed buttons on the back. However, I was a little surprised about the length of this dress. I am wearing a medium, but probably should have sized up because it is a little short for me! I am 5’8 for reference. With the exception of the length, the dress is true to size.
I’ve been dying to wear these cute polka dot tights that I picked up a few weeks ago and knew that this velvet dress would pair perfectly with them. I have such bad luck with tights — I am constantly finding snags — so I always opt for the budget friendly tights because I know I wont’ get many wears out of them!
Have you added any velvet to your closet yet for the holidays? I would love to hear in the comments section below! I hope you all have a great weekend! Any fun plans? Ella is going to visit Santa on Saturday and then we are taking our Christmas pictures so it will be a busy day for us! Thanks so much for reading and see you back here on Monday, friends!
