Rose Gold Velvet Dress

You ever have moments where you feel like nothing is going the way you want it to?  I have had those moments one too many times this past month and when my dress for my friends wedding did not arrive at all, that was just the topping on the cake.  This day was special to me and I wanted to look special for it.  After trying on what felt like a million dresses, I just felt like giving up. I will not torture you with too many details but just know that searching for the dress the night before the wedding was not fun. As I was about to walk to my car, I decided to try one more place: Express.  I walked in, picked two dresses off the rack, and walked straight to the register.  I didn't even try them on, I was that done.  I actually didn't try on the dresses till the next day...

Two hours before the wedding and BAM - I made my choice.  Lucky is all I can say.  This velvet dress is pure magic.  Very 90's Kate Moss, don't you think?  When I picked this off the hanger I didn't think in a million years that it would look this good.  That's right, I said it.  I looked good and most importantly felt good.  I slipped it on and fell in love.  It is simple but packs a punch in this beautiful rose gold velvet. Clingy in all the right places, I felt like a total bombshell.  For the record, the second dress (here in navy, I bought it in red) was just as beautiful but not as flattering.  Rose gold earrings and silver shoes finished off the look.  I loved how the rose gold and silver looked together, the perfect "mixed metal" ensemble.

Now, let us talk about my hair and make-up.  I met Rachell at the wedding I went to in Fort Lauderdale.  We clicked right away once we realized we were both bloggers and shared the same love of fashion and beauty.  I immediately thought of her when it came to my hair and make-up.  She exceeded my expectations and I'm so happy that she came through for me.  Thanks, girl!

Before I go, I'm curious to know how you feel about mixing metals?  What do you think or what would you have done differently?  I would love to hear your ideas on how you would have worn it.  I already have a few ideas on how I can wear it again and again.  Like I said, this dress is pure magic.
