For the Love of Crushed Velvet

Crushed velvet is my favorite trend of the season. It's so fun and brings back found memories of the 1990s. I went full in with the dress, the bag and the shoes and I loved every minute of it and got loads of compliments. I wore this look out for a double date in Old Town Alexandria where we hit up Blackwater Hitch for dinner with some old friends. They have their own oyster farm and they were really tasty. Then we walked up to Magnolia's on King for some excellent cocktails. It was such a fun evening. It's warmed up a bit so I was able to go stockingless and enjoy the weather. I also had a new Rocksbox with some really fun jewelry that topped off this outfit perfectly. Check out the look and the details.

Charlotte Russe Velvet Bodycon Dress $19
I was super excited that this dress fit and looked good. It's super soft and a tad on the short side but really fun. I'm wearing a large and I'm around a size 6.

My Nordstrom bag is sold out but this one from Rebecca Minkoff is the same color and has the same chain details. This is such a fun style to accent all your fall/winter looks. ASOS has a similar look bag for just $46 if you're looking for a deal.

These shoes are maybe my favorite pair of shoes ever! They're so fun and comfortable. I walked all over Old Town and they felt great. Plus you can dress them up or down.

This necklace is so beautiful and fun. I love the art deco feel to it. Get this and two other pieces for just $19 a month with Rocksbox. You can try it for free with the code amandabbff1130.


I love this brand and Rocksbox has lots of their wrap bracelets. I may just keep this one it's so much fun.
