Velvet Dress with Layered Blouse


I’m head-over-heels in love with this glamorous velvet dress from Gianni Bini. The flowing velvet skirt is so lightweight and comfortable that ladies will have no problem dancing the night away. Pair the look with these cute vorana sandals  from Antonio Melani, they come in 2 colors! I wear them with everything!!! Below are some of my favorite gold dresses..

When I first saw this dress I couldn’t believe it was only $139! I almost thought it was too good to be true. It came in the mail within a week and it blew me away. This dress easily looks about $200-$300 with the beautiful details and vintage style. Shows the right curves at the right places. This dress is drop dead gorgeous! Honestly, I couldn’t be any happier. If you just want only the skirt you can get it (HERE). I’m off to Japan tomorrow. See you guys soon!

As always thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

    Your velvet dress looks gorgeous! I love how bold you look and everything is just well put. For $139, you got a really good deal! Glad you’re enjoying it and hope you’ll have a great time in Japan!

    This styling is impeccable Len! I adore the velvet dress and the top is so fab with it. For some reason, the dress reminds me of christmas or just the festive season in genera. You should probably style it again in a couple months. STUNNING!

    What an interesting way to layer with this dress. I always think to add on top of it, but not always under it!!
    You have such a creative mind, Len!!

    I love the sheer material of the blouse, and that velvet dress is gorgeous. The colour is lovely and you’re so right – it really would be perfect for dancing!
