It’s that time of year for holiday parties, elegant happy hours and dressing up just because! I wanted to share one of my new favorite finds!

You guys, this dress. I got this dress during Loft’s incredible Black Friday sale this year – when I saw it online I thought it was so interesting and different! When it arrived, I was a little iffy – but then as soon as I put it on, I fell in love.

The fabric is thinner than it appears online, which means this dress drapes PERFECTLY and creates a gorgeous swingy silhouette. The velvet literally feels like a dream. I have to admit that when velvet first started appearing on the scene again, I was hesitant (I think I was still haunted by the velvet track suits my fifth grade self used to rock… yeesh), but now I am firmly on the bandwagon. I think my favorite thing about this dress is the stunning pattern and the colors that aren’t traditional Christmas-y colors but are at the same time perfect for standing out this time of year. All you ladies that want a dress for a holiday get-together that isn’t red or green, this is the one for you.

I hope everyone’s having a wonderful holiday season so far!
