Velvet...










Dress: Banana Republic, similar & similar, Tights: Target, Pumps: Madden Girl, Necklace: J.Crew, similar & similar, Bracelets: Francesca's Collections, similar & similar      

Sometimes it just feels good to get dressed up! I had the best time last week with Justin at the Old Capitol Museum snapping photos and taking in all the sights. The building is so breathtaking and is full of history, it felt only natural to be a little more formally dressed in such a beautiful place. 

I love a good LDB. My velvet dress from Banana Republic is a staple in my closet, and I may or may not have worn this dress two years in a row for Christmas Eve mass! When shopping for an LBD, look for quality stitching, fabrics and thickness. I always run my hands through the material to really make sure it's not too sheer or see-through. Black is surprisingly sheer in almost all materials, so keep that in mind when shopping! This dress is definitely my winter LBD given that it's velvet, but it's one of two LBD's that I own, and I wear both of them on repeat because they are quality, timeless pieces.

Thanks for reading! See you Monday :)
