Blue Velvet

I have so much to tell you; I think I should number my points.
If you follow me on Instagram @Kay_Sherrie, then you’ve seen pictures of this dress, and you know that I thrifted it for $6.99. I love velvet, and I knew that I could find plenty of it at the thrift store. I was right. I love the cold-shoulder detail, and there are ruffles on the other shoulder.
You can get the dress here.
I made these shoes, but not in their entirety. I’m not that crafty yet. I had these Jessica Simpson heels that I never wore, and I had been seeing these ankle-tie heels all over Instagram. You know me; I got to thinking. I went to Walmart and bought a spool of ribbon. I cut two strips and laced one through the ankle strap of each shoe. That’s how I “made” my own ankle-tie heels.
This is my third time shooting photos in this look. It was cold all three times, and my hair and makeup were different all three times. I was starting to think I wouldn’t ever be able to do a post for this look, but I did. I even found some blue velvet dresses and linked them for you. I hope you enjoy!
