High, Medium & Low Priced Dresses!

I consider myself to be a bit of a deal finder.  Whenever my girlfriends are looking for a specific item they want, I take great pride in being able to search it out and find it for them at a smoking deal!  I definitely own some investment pieces, and have so much appreciation for good quality and luxury items, but I am also a sucker for a bargain!  I have been obsessed with velvet this year and am making a conscious effort not to go overboard with this particular trend.  I had been seeing these gorgeous velvet wrap dresses everywhere and after losing the internal struggle with the more practical version of myself, I came to the conclusion that I needed one hanging in my closet… LOL!  I decided to shop around to see if I could find an option I liked at a lower price point.  Well, it was a successful mission so I decided I should share some of my various priced finds with you guys 🙂

Fall Trends: Velvet

I have to confess, I have been slow to get on board with the velvet trend.  In fact, I flat-out ignored it last year and secretly hoped it would go away… lol!  I don’t know what it is about this Fall, but I am finding myself totally drawn to it now.  Do I dare say I’m “crushing” on velvet?!? (Ha ha, see what I did there?)  My first velvet purchase this year was a simple black dress to subtly try out the trend.  I am completely hooked… I love it all now!  Velvet booties, clutches and all of the beautiful colours and styles it is available in!  I just even recently purchased my six-year-old the cutest little velvet dress to match me… lol!
