Luxurious Velvet With Pink Clove

Autumn is definitely coming and my 10 week long travel is coming to an end. What an amazing experience it has been and the memories both Mike and I are left with are all so great.
But before we are heading back to everyday life we are going to Norway for a week and I will need warmer clothes out there than I've needed in Spain.
One of the things I've been looking forward to with coming back to UK is to wear warmer clothes as it's a lot of fun mixing up textures, layering and wearing boots and darker colours.

When I was asked by Pink Clove if I wanted to review one of their new items I chose to go for an item that is very much combining two trends that are very strong at the moment. Velvet and cold shoulder. This beautiful Bright red Chrissy velvet dress with cold shoulders *is such a statement piece for the colder months, either on its own or teamed with a leather jacket. A perfect dress for a that special party where you want to be sexy and still be elegant. Velvet brings me straight back to my youth in the 90s where I was very much embracing this style with my favourite item of clothing being which was a blue tight fitting velvet dress, not unlike the one I'm wearing here. Fashion trends come and go, and I have to admit that velvet is definitely one my favourite trends as I love this luxurious fabric so much.

I'm wearing a size 26 in this dress as this body-con style is very figure hugging and I like a bit of extra room in body-con dresses. I love the length of this dress as it reaches me just below my knees. I would say that 26 in this dress is a teeny bit on the tight side of the scale, especially over the tummy. It's not uncomfortable and it flows nicely over my bumps, but if you're between sizes I would size up if I was you. 

 Beautiful dress for a party or Christmas. Or whenever you just want to feel a bit more glam!

I love mixing textures, so I chose to wear my patent wedges as a nice edgy contrast to the femininity and fluidity of the velvet dress. I think that works so well and looks really cool and sexy. Velvet is a material that screams for attention on its own, so I've chosen to keep the accessories at a minimum. I chose a red necklace with gold accents as red and gold is stunning together.  

  I love the long sleeves and the cold shoulder detail adds even more sexiness to the dress. The neckline is gorgeous as I like my dresses and clothes to be a bit more booby. It feels better when the girls aren't squashed up to your neck! 

I have several pieces of velvet in my wardrobe that I will be using a lot in the winter. Taking these photo in over 30 degrees heat in Spain proved difficult as I was so hot. I was very happy that the photos turned out so we as they did cause I was thinking I looked like a hot mess.

Would you wear velvet? How would you style it?
