Velvet Crush, Part 2

Linnea White

We've already discussed our love of this sultry, regal fabric, but the pieces keep coming in, week after week, and we can't get enough of our Velvet Crush. (Seriously, though, expect a Part 3 soon, and counting.)

This Betsey Johnson dress is sugar and spice and everything nice. The velvet fabric is patterned with rich floral greens and plums, and an empire waist that gives it a vintage flare. Add a pair of classic structured heels by Seychelles and a leather choker, another Fall trend we can't get enough of at the shop, and this outfit is a chic little Fall ensemble, filled with whimsy and charisma.

Can't wait to show you Part 3 of this little Velvet Crush series! What do you think it will be?
