Dress: Rachel Rachel Roy. Shoes: Marni. Necklace: LF. Shades: Ray Ban. Jacket: H&M
I’m going through old pics while watching Jay Leno, and completely forgot to post this slouchy velvet dress I wore during the summer when out for an evening! So being it’s utter crap right now outside, I thought I’d give the weather the finger and post them now.
The dress is from the Rachel Rachel Roy collection, more pics here (click on ‘watch video’ where it was a blast to be involved).
Currently, velvet is mostly shown in form fitting body con shapes like this Topshop number, but it’s nice to have the looser silhouette option. I’ll probably do a post wearing it soon layered over wool tights etc.

    That’s a beautiful dress. I usually don’t like velvet because of the ill shaping, as you stated, but this I could wear.

    Amazing how some certain clothing items work for one person and not for the other! I remember looking at those shoes in one of the boutiques here that past summer and thinking what kind of a girl would be able to pull them off. In all honesty, I thought the shoes were a little ugly. But now I see you wearing them and wow, it’s totally YOU. They look perfectly beautiful to me now, even. Funny how it works, eh? 🙂

    Hey Karen, great outfit…just curious, what size is the rachel roy dress? it looks a little bit longer than the one on the rachel roy website does. i was just curious to see if you went up a size or something…i like how yours fits waaay better than the models
