A stunning one-shoulder velvet maxi dress for the holidays and new year!
Hello, most stunning dress ever. You know I LOVE velvet. We have an almost New Year’s wedding to attend (December 30th), and it is black tie. I wanted something gorgeous and lux. And because it is winter, a velvet fabric was at the top of my list. So, when I found this one shoulder velvet maxi dress, I was in love. Sometimes I have ideas in my head of a clothing piece I want, but it doesn’t actually exist. Fortunately for me, this dress was better than I was imagining. Of course, it look a lot of searching, but my efforts paid off.
Something about navy is elegant and classic, and I love how stunning it looks in velvet. The one shoulder is comfy and provides just the right amount of coverage for a formal wedding. But, the back has an unexpected slit that makes the dress feel edgy. The silver shoes are fun and festive, and a sparkle clutch adds the perfect touch.
We will be traveling out of town for this wedding, and it will be the first time I’ve ever spent the night away from Lincoln. He will be nine months old by this time, and I’m not sure I’m ready! Although I know it will be good to get away with just Neil, I am sad to leave my little buddy behind. Neil is a groomsman in the wedding, too, so that means we will be away for two nights. Cue emotional breakdown. Any tips from moms out there?! Leaving your baby is never easy, and the first time is always the worst!
