Red Velvet If You Please

You know how when you slip into certain items of clothing you feel like a million dollars? Well, this dress from Sweeties Vintage was one of those moments for me. I've raved about velvet before, but really how awesome are clothes made out of fabrics that are delicious to touch? The structure of the dress is dynamite as well and check out the little zippers in the sleeves.

I styled it two ways; the first is more of a "night time" look while the second is how I "toned down" the dress and wore it for day.

  2. I agree with Helen!

    This dress is very whimsical! I love the zipper detail ... You bring it to life. I'll definitely be checking out her etsy store. Such a great setting too, the trees are a lovely contrast to the red.

    xo!

  10. I really like the heavy texture of the velvet dress and I love, love the shoes! Ah! They're amazing.

    Also - I saw that you've listed Bansky in your inspirations. I just spent yesterday afternoon searching for some of his new pieces in San Francisco and I've got photos of them here if you're interested: http://ryours.blogspot.com/2010/05/art-hunting.html

  14. That red dress is breath taking! You just can't find the construction of vintage anymore, unless you buy designer which lord knows most of us can't!

  19. oh dear Ilove the colors of these photos!

  20. The shape of the dress is just beautiful. Does it have just bust darts or full length princess seams?

    I love the daytime look. I hate that velvet is usually for nighttime...I have a love affair with soft things and wish I was daring enough to wear velvet during the day!

  21. So pretty Rebecca! The dress was made for you, but I have to say that my favorite part of this outfit is the shoes, they are so fun.

  23. oh you're right, velvet is the most delicious fabric. so, so comfortable.

    what a fantastic dress!

    ReplyDelete
  24. This just may be one of my favorite outfits I've ever seen you in. What a perfect red dress... it looks very versatile as you demonstrated with the night look/day look. Of course, it looks fantastic with your hair color and red lipstick. The cut of your black jacket looks great against the red... and that necklace is somethin' else!

  31. Beautiful photos! They feel very whimsical, even though you've got strong color going on. I feel like I should be looking into the corners of those pictures for other fashion-forward pixies. Nice styling!

  32. Gorgeous photos! That dress is so amazing on you! I have a couple of velvet dresses, and I really love the old-timey vibe and sumptuousness of it, but ... I'm not really a sweaty girl, but damn if a velvet dress doesn't make me sweat like crazy! Perhaps I'll have to limit my consumption to things that do not cover my top half....

  33. Love these photos, the scenery was a great choice for the red dress, really makes you stand out.

    By the way, I thought you might be interested in this post because I know you said you loved old childhood photos. http://butterflycupcakesanddaffodils.blogspot.com/2010/05/hippy-child.html
