Velvet and Ponies








Outfit Details:
velvet dress - forever 21
tights - we love colors
shoes - courtesy of LuLu*s
belt - my mom's store
Rebecca Minkoff Studded Tart - courtesy of Rebecca Minkoff (crazy sale going on right now)
lace jacket - thrifted


When I was in fourth grade, all I wanted was this velvet bodysuit that had long, belled sleeves and went off the shoulders. Every trend I was fond of was a component of this one little bodysuit and I just had to have it. When my friend came to class in a similar top that was not an actual bodysuit, I made sure to remind her that come the new year, I would have its superior counterpart. We had matching bubble necklaces; it was only natural that we should also match our outfits, too.

Well, I never did get that velvet bodysuit or anything remotely similar, but this dress is a close second. I didn't dare lament about it; once you've received a pony as a Christmas gift, you really can't complain about anything. Ever.




p.s. I have a bad habit of forgetting to close my bags...it has a cute little studded strap that goes over the flap.

  2. Yes a pony will make up for an awful lot! Not a huge fan of crushed velvet in general, but this is very pretty - in particular with the cute lace cover up.

  5. This feels like a Christmas party outfit. Crushed velvet always reminds me of the 90's (good, bad, whatever).

  12. I saw that dress at F21 this morning, 1 AM to be exact :) and wanted what I believe was a navy blue or black color... I love velvet for the winter, your outfit is gorgeous as usual! The emerald color on that tart is beautiful.

  31. i've been fascinated with velvet lately and you, my dear, pull it off without a flaw! It looks absolutely gorgeous with the dark lace and tights. That raspberry color truly pops out! And the green studded bag totally sets it off. Beautiful! xxA, thelaughslut.blogspot.com

  33. velvet is definitely making a come back. a friend of mine had a velvet cape with a hood, which i wouldn't advise, but otherwise velvet is hot!

  43. Oh ma gaaad I'm IN LOVE with your bag. And this post is making me regret big time that I didn't buy a similar lace shirt I saw at the thrift store yesterday. Oh well! I'll find a better one someday...

    And I'm really glad that velour and velvet are back! Tacky as they might be, that is some cozy shit. It makes me feel all fancy and snuggly all at once :P

  49. Well , the view of the passage is totally correct ,your details is really reasonable and you guy give us valuable informative post.let’s introduce something interesting about superb Michael Jordan's performance and his weapon nike air max 2011.Jordan has repeatedly said: "The shoes air jordan 2010 are my clothes for a department, a department of my personality. " We can use the "Michael Jordan jordan retro shoes and new jordan shoes 2010 "to refer to Michael Jordan, or call his shoes such as nike shox torch.
