Velvet… The most romantic fabric of all is ruling the blogosphere this season. It is both chic and sultry, and longs to be touched. What better choice for date night and the upcoming holiday season?! Summer’s off-the-shoulder trend continues into fall and winter with this deep wine-red party dress fit for royalty. There’s just something about the richness of it all.

For a festive event or wedding, wear your hair up to show off your shoulders and accent with warm, golden accessories like this gilded leaf crown (Shhh! It’s only $7 and I listed my favorites at the bottom!). The braids that I do so often are truly simple with a small amount of practice. See my braid crown tutorial HERE. You are guaranteed to be the fairest in the room!
