Trending: Lush Velvets

As the song goes! “She wore blue velvet, bluer than velvet was the night, softer than satin was the light from the stars”;)

Velvet is still going strong and trending right now! So I wanted to share my favourite velvet piece styled in an evening look, my Mom (LSB) made/designed this glamorous velvet number for me a few years ago, Isnt it so fab?!


I love this dress for many reasons; It’s a great colour for my skin tone and I love a BOLD blue. It has a sort of effortless retro luxury to it being cut in a shift dress style with a thick velvet so it hangs so nicely. It reminds me of something Liz Taylor would have worn, its flashy but simple in design. I added to this Liz-retro-glam vibe by making a point with my vintage jewels, some classic hosiery to show of my legs and a black patent shoe.

In this look I feel very luxurious, (the velvet feels so nice!) elegant, chic and confident all eyes are on me in such a royal blue.
