For as long as I can remember, velvet has always been a fabric that made me super uncomfortable. The texture of it is funky and I hated the way it felt when brushed up against my skin. When I saw this dress, I couldn't say no. The color seduced me, and the design reminded me of a Tibi skirt that I once coveted. So in opposition to my uncomfortable feelings towards velvet, I bought the dress and didn't look back!

One of the amazing qualities of this dress is also its downside - the rich color. Anything with heavy colors as such, in most cases it means lots of dyes were used to achieve the appearance. With that being said here's a personal story about this dress: I wore this dress for the first time while it was freezing and raining in Boston.

When we got back to our place, I changed into my comfy clothes which was a white long sleeve jumper and sweatpants . Later that evening I went to shower and when I took off the shirt, it was red. I wish I had captured the frightened look on my face on camera. I thought I was turning red! RED! I had never seen a red person before but I was sure, I was it!

So it's safe to say that as gorgeous as velvet may look, beware of the possibility that it might leave a bit of color on your skin. Apart from that, I will be adding a few more velvet bits and bobs into my wardrobe. What are you thoughts on velvet, do you love it or would you never consider it?
