Blue Velvet

So, I have to confess that I actually got this boho inspired dress from SheIn to match the blue velvet booties I bought at Marshalls a couple weeks before. I know that's insane, but maybe not as insane as the fact that I also bought a Mary Jane version of these booties too! Yes, I am that in love with velvet and, more specifically, blue velvet. (On a side note, this title is also an allusion to the David Lynch movie by the same name for you movie buffs out there!)

Let me say that even though my impetus for buying this dress was to have something to match my boots, I really, really love this particular boho style dress. It's definitely something that's out of the realm of what I normally wear, but it's always fun to step out of your comfort zone. For under $20, which is what the dress costs, it's fun to take a fashion risk and try something new! Plus, I love the floral print of this dress too and it will look great with tights and maybe a denim jacket once the weather cools off a bit. It's one of those things that you can just throw on with a cute necklace and pair of boots and you're instantly chic!

A few thing about these boots: first they were only $36, so just like the dress, they were a great deal! Second, they enabled me to have what teachers like to refer as a "teachable moment" with the sales associate about different types of materials. When I went to check out, the sales associate asked me if the boots were suede or velvet. I said that they were velvet and tried to explain the differences between the two materials. She then said that she wasn't sure she would want to wear velvet shoes because she might get dog hair all over them. That's definitely I concern that I have too, although it turned out that dog slobber was a bigger issue, as William walked right up to them and pressed his nose directly against them!
