Daily Looks: Fall 2017

Just some of my casual daily looks from fall 2017. Though fall weather didn’t kick in till about 3 weeks or so ago I did want to post some of my favorite looks from the past couple months. Outfit details will be listed below each outfit, though I will not be listing every item in each look. I will have info on the main item and provided links. However, if there is anything you are wondering you can always email me on here or leave a comment. You can also always send a message on any of my various social medias (Instagram/twitter – @thevelvetdress_ ) and I will always do my best to help 🙂

I also want to mention that this post was originally meant to go up about 10 days ago though we have unfortunately been impacted by the Thomas fire here in Southern California.…

Styling: Fall Fabrics

IMG 5123 zps7siekxwd Styling: Fall Fabrics

This fall season is all about cozy textures. When I saw this beautiful 70s style suede button up skirt I knew it would be perfect for endless outfits this season. If you know me you know I’m a total sucker for velvet, so I fell completely in love when I saw they also had a velvet romper.

Though the shop does feature a few items that aren’t black, it is their specialty shade, as they have one of the best collections of black clothing I’ve ever seen.…

But it’s true that the leopard print with the tortoise shell print can look a bit costume. Then earlier today I wore my long flowy black kimono and tall black boots.…

Styling: Statement Bags

1Y5A9140 zps2ccwrxup Styling: Statement Bags

Today’s look features a simple outfit with a statement bag. This beautiful handmade bucket style bag is from the lovely company Mochila Bag Addixion. Coming from a person who does not own a lot of bags, because most do not hold up their quality unless you buy designer, I can really say these bags are great quality and sturdy. I took it to the beach and it fit my towel, water, book, and shoes just fine and still held it’s silhouette perfectly. What I love the most about these bags are some designs are truly one of a kind, as the bags come in a large variety of prints and sizes and sell out quick.…
