It is true, I will aways love velvet! It is difficult to pair with anything, and it is difficult to take photos of & in, and don't get me STARTED on how difficult it is to sew and work with, fabricwise, but it has my heart <3 Whether it is something contemporary or something vintage velvet always holds a certain victorian charm! I purchased this paricular dress at Value Village, out of the children's section (it is always much easier to find cute dresses made from velvet in the children's department!) & it has a skater dress flair, adorable half-sleeves and full bodice-to-neck lace detail. I paired it with a suade pair of Steve Madden wedges & grey wool thigh-high socks - not entirely happy with the combination but, again, it was hard to accessorize green velvet.
I tried the bump pigtail that emily did a tutorial for, only mine doesn't have curls because I did it at the last minute!

I am working on of renaissance artwork & my humble first-attempt at a snood in an eco-friendly cotton. A bit snug, so it is more of a beret at this point, but you will see many more snoods at the weeks and posts pass!
