Under Velvet Covers

A velvet dress is my newest want (not like I have that many ha). The last time I wore that sort of material was at a Christmas assembly in grade 2 (I was 7 years old) where I dressed in an emerald green, long sleeve dress with a white peter-pan detail collar (similar to Alexa Chung's dress in photo 6). My hair was in a high bun on the top of my head with some synthetic mistletoe to accessorize. Looking back now, I'd say my style was pretty on point. Oh, how I wish I could have that dress to wear now - in my size of course.
