I know that velvet is having a moment but this dress found in North Carolina (over Thanksgiving) was too good to pass on.   You can see more of it on my Instagram (karenbritchick) worn over jeans.

I feel like mixing textures in the same color is an excuse to pile on matching pieces but that slit is just begging for a flash of cobweb.    I haven’t worn these tights in about five years but everything comes back – cobweb tights included.

.   .   .

Bag: Chloe Faye.  Or get a Chloe Faye for less via Selfridges (ships in a week to US customs included). Knit:  Forever21 or try Shopbop. Velvet dress worn as skirt: Goodwill Thrifting.  This Topshop velvet skirt though.   Shoes: Adidas.  Glasses: Asos
