blue velvet / the reformation

If you've been following my blog for any extended amount of time I'm sure you're familiar with my Reformation obsession. So when I was in NY this past weekend I totes-obvi-duh had to pop into the soho ref store. Uggggggh SO MUCH GOOD STUFF. I was finally able to try on a handful of the dresses that have been sitting in my virtual shopping cart for months now. Anyone with a slight online virtual window shopping addiction can agree that more often than not, pieces look super fab online (thanks to model babes, styling, photography, perfect lighting, etc.) and then lack the same magic in person. Let me just say this. Ref pieces look just as amazeballs, if not more amazeballs, in person as on their instagram. Amongst my fitting room stack was this backless blue velvet dress. Velvet? Blue?? Dress??? Yes. For some reason I love that it's reminiscent of a figure skater's competition garb, blame my twelve years of intense ballet training if you will. The "charm dress" lives up to its name and is perfect for a night out (hello, new year's eve!!) or for the day under a baggy sweatshirt. Although it's not available online in the blue, grab it in black or maroon to be a total #refbabe and solve your holiday dress dilemma all at once.

  2. I love that dress on you! And I totally agree--a big problem with holiday dress shopping is that what you see online is often not what you actually get. Will have to check out Reformation for sure.
