Blue Crushed Velvet Dress, Leather Jacket, & Polka Dot Tights

Happy Monday everyone!
I re-discovered this blue crushed velvet dress packed away under my bed with other winter clothes. It fits a little big up top so I don't wear it as often as I could. I figured I better wear it this year or it isn't worth holding on to. I really like how it looked with my polka dot tights and a leather jacket. I actually went to see a roller derby bout in this outfit! If only I was cool enough (and had enough time and wasn't scared of getting elbowed in the face...) to try out roller derby!

Do you guys have any pieces in your wardrobe you don't wear very often but still hold on to? I'm sure you do! I have plenty. I'm getting to the point where I need to purge some stuff though. Particularly non-classic things that I haven't really worn and things I thrifted but never altered. I'll definitely do that over the summer! 

I hope you guys have a great Monday!

Polka dots and leather jacket (plus blue velvet) is a awesome combination! I don't have anything in velvet, but my sister has and I'm always tempted to borrow it! Her dress is burgundy with lace peter pan collar so I'm in love with it! Hope you have are having a wonderful start to the week! xxx

I love those polka dot tights, and the dress is really cute on you!

Oh yes, I have tons of clothes I don't wear. I'm always like: "why the hell did I even buy this"...Ah well... I do love your dress! I think it would look awesome with a belt, or with a sweater on top. The color is magic and the texture so cool looking!

I have so many pieces that I can't let go of. And I know I won't be wearing them much in the future...You make your dress work though! I can't really tell that it has an off fit.
The roller derby seems so badass but I can't even rollerskate so that's that.

Ooh, crushed velvet and crystal necklace! La-la-love. I definitely have items I never wear but hold onto anyway =/

I lurve that velvet color, Jamie! but I know what you mean-- I had a black velvet dress that was (opposite of yours) too small on the top. And after a few months of trying to make it work, I ended up giving it away. :(

I have WAY too many items that I hold onto even though I don't wear them often. This dress is awesome. I'm especially smitten with these polka dot tights and these booties.

Also, YES. Can we please be real life friends soon? Because I feel like we need to be.

Ah shoot, that dress is so cool! BLUE VELVET! That sounds like a fabuuu band name. I love that dress on you so much, though, especially with your polka dot tights.
