“What is this, Velvet?”


Any 80’s babies and comedy lovers will get this title, but even if you don’t, the message remains the same.

Velvet, velvet, velvet. It’s still here and by the looks of it, it ain’t going no where hunty. Last year, I was super in love with it. This year, nothing has changed. The colors of this season are bold with ultra feminine styles. Y’all know I love me a good date night dress. This past week, we shot looks that represented my love for this special fabric.

Look #1   Forever 21 Plus

I decided to style this with a Fantasie Lingerie Bra to give this look more of a vintage bustier style.  Best part is this dress? It was less than $20! Mustard is so poppin’ right now.



Look #2 Forever 21 Plus

I love how soft and romantic this brown-mauve shade is. It’s flattering for almost every skin tone. Shoes are from, and you can always use my code JULZ50 to save 50% off your entire order.


Look #3 is Also From Forever 21 Plus

I had to get these pants! I’m from Texas and these totally channel my inner Selena. They are really comfy and stretchy. Pairing a body suit and a fancy bra really kicked it up a notch. You can score the body suit from F21, too. Hooray for natural lighting giving me that glow up look!


Look #4 AMI Clubwear

This off the shoulder, long sleeve dress with attached choker was giving me all kinds of Cher from Clueless vibes.


Look #5 Fashion Nova Curve

Okuuurrrr, can we say selfie worthy Boss Babe? I actually received this dress early 2017 but it may be up on their website still. Wrap style and ruching all together!


Look #6 Fashion Nova Curve

When I saw this dress on the website, immediately I knew I needed it and wanted to shoot it. This deep emerald color is so holiday party worthy. Shoot, I may even wear this to a wedding celebration coming up. I can’t tell you how pretty this dress is.  Definitely one of my faves for 2017! Shoes for this looks and the previous look are AMI Clubwear.


To wrap up my love for velvet post, just remember to wear what makes you feel beautiful, sexy, empowered and fierce.
