How to do Crushed Velvet

forever 21 dress


I wore this little getup to my show at Rockwood on Saturday (awesome time!!) Simple, yet effective. I was going for a rocker-grunge-chick thing, with the crushed velvet and all. However, the hat is coming off very late-80's Debbie Gibson to me. Either way, I love the look. Isn't it awesome the way the light bounces off the fabric?

The coolest thing about these photos is the shadow that the tree cast on the building as we were taking them. Do you see the shadow?

  11. Yes yes yes! <3 The textures and reflective properties make this dress utterly perfect! I love that it's not maroon. Everyone seems to opt for that color with the velvet dresses, I guess because it's super retro. Honestly, I'd probably get the maroon too. Haha. But you went against the grain and now I feel like I want a black version, too. :D
