Crinkled Velvet

For as long as I can remember I've loved clothes. Dresses have always been a personal favorite and for a year or two in elementary school (around first grade) they were the only thing I would wear. My mom said I was so strong on my refusal to wear pants that she didn't but me any for over a year. 

There are a few outfits from childhood that I can remember in particular. One was a blue crushed velvet dress my mom bought me to wear for Christmas Mass. It was a deep dark navy and so soft! I felt beyond glamorous in the shift dress. I can remember wearing it with tights and mary jane flats at Christmas. Every chance I got I would want to wear it again. I can remember my mom telling me several times that I wasn't allowed to wear it when I went to play outside or ride my bike.

As soon as I saw this dress online I had an instant wave of nostalgia. I was 8 again and wearing the blue velvet dress my mom had picked out for me! It felt very meant to be when I tried this dress on. It's the modern version of my Christmas dress! 

Even if you aren't reliving your childhood, like yours truly, this dress is a great addition for anyone's closet! The crinkled velvet adds even more texture to the dress. I've styled it here how I wore it out for a fun and casual night out in Austin. The shape is flattering but I still had room for all the Mexican food and margaritas we had! (#priorities) Since it isn't too cool yet, black booties were sufficient for an evening. When it cools off my over the knee boots and leather jacket will add edge to the dress!

Probably the best part about this crinkled velvet dress is that it is on sale this weekend! Use code WinWin for 20% off it and all dresses at Anthropologie! I love this velvet shirtdress too!
