Violet Velvet

Over the weekend I grabbed a bargain with this beautiful purple velvet Jigsaw dress, from my local Oxfam shop.  It is slightly big for me and missing a ribbon belt, but at £2 for the dress I can’t really complain (and these things can easily be remedied by a trip to the dressmaker)!  The dress has short ruched sleeves with a low straight neckline, a ribbon detail at the corner of the neckline and reaches down to calf length with a beaded frill.

The dress is evocative of sunny woodlands and fairy-tales and so it would go really well with rose gold accessories such as my delicate dipped leaf necklace from Bloom Boutique and Accessorize sequinned handbag, and a brown leather plaited belt.  Paired with dark grey or even dark green tights and metallic shoes, this would be perfect for a glitzy winter party!
