Velvet Noir!



Black dress & Boots

Hello beautiful!

I hope you had a great start to your week. It has been crazy busy… and very cold around here. You have to agree with me that the hardest and of course bravest thing to do in the Winter is to take outdoor photos. As much as I would like to share my cute coats and jackets with you guys, it’s just too much to brave the oh-so-cold weather here in the Twin Cities. That been said, bear with me with my indoor pics.

This was my New Year’s Eve look. My first instinct was to pair this velvet bell sleeve dress from WHBM with red pumps for a sleek look, but instead, I decided to go with these over the knee boots for a more new year’s eve bam look and all black everything ensemble. The all silver accessories were my choice of the night as I was ready to welcome  and toast to the New Year with family and friends! I love this dress, and it will probably make another appearance on the blog with a different take in style, and I will make sure to take pictures of the back which has a cute cut with a bow detail!


Coucou! J’espère que vous avez commencé la semaine en beauté. Ce fut hyper occupé ici et ne parlons même pas du froid! Brrrrr!!! Autant que j’aimerais vous montrer des looks avec de mignons manteaux et tout et tout 😀 , c’est presqu’impossible de prendre des photos en ce fou temps d’hiver ici! Il faut bien être brave! Cette tenue fut mon style de la St Sylvestre. Ma première idée était de porter des chaussures fermées couleur rouge sur cette robe en velours, mais j’avais finalement opté pour ces bottes à mi-cuisses! C’est donc avec cet ensemble tout noir avec bijoux argentés que j’ai accueilli et toaster pour la nouvelle année… Au dos de la robe, se trouve une jolie petite bande en soie sertie d’un nœud que je n’ai pas eu l’occasion de capturer ici. Je suis certaine que la robe fera d’autres apparitions sur le blog et je ne manquerai de vous le montrer.
