The Perfect Velvet Valentine's Day Dress


When I was pregnant with Winter, I bought this amazing velvet green dress at Goodwill. I never ended up wearing it and wish so badly I would have gotten a picture of my bump in it. When I bought it, velvet was nowhere to be found in stores, but just a few short years later, velvet seems to be the new (old?) latest trend. And I am all for it!

This swift dress from Nordstrom is the perfect mix of retro and elegance. I like how it's not too formal, and I can't get enough of the hints of romance with the open back and bishop sleeves. It is a wee bit short when you put your arms up, so I think it would look great with some black tights and ankle boots.

If you are looking for the perfect dress for Valentine's day, then look no further. This dress gets five stars from me. It comes in pink, too!


**As of February 8th this dress is 40% off! Hurry! It won't last long.
