Velvet Joy

After a month full of nonstop work and holiday events I saved my favorite holiday look for Christmas Eve. I spent the day at church with the family which was followed by a late lunch by the East River before heading into Dyker Heights in Brooklyn to take in some of the gorgeous Christmas light displays.  It was a full day, but it was amazing because I got to spend it with my family. What made it even better was this Eloquii dress I purchased as a gift to myself.  This dress was everything that I could want for a holiday look — elegant, feminine and festive. 20161224_164529-420161224_164435-2This solid teal velvet piece accented on the shoulders with floral embroidery is absolutely gorgeous on its own so I kept it simple, only adding a thin gold belt to emphasize the fit and flare silhouette and jewel tone of the fabric.  I paired it with these stylish velvet Neo-Victorian booties; their tailored faux button sides and stitching details helped create an overall throwback look that’s fashion forward.20161224_164532-2
