Friday the 13th in Velvet



After I got home from work on Friday (the 13th!) I decided to slip into this lush velvet dress along with some pointy boots as Derek and I were going to go out for a nice meal. I went to the tattoo shop only to see that Derek and all the guys were slammed as they were having a 'first come, first serve' Friday the 13th themed tattoo special. So, I jumped in to lend a hand and by the time Derek was done it was 10:45pm and too late for eating out. Can't complain and it's always great when the shop is busy!




I had snapped a few camera pics with my phone as I really liked what I was wearing and finally realized I could layer this dress with a blouse underneath. Now I have more styling options and will be wearing the dress more often as winter is the perfect time to wear velvet!




Wearing; velvet dress (Hot Topic), sheer blouse (thrift), boots (eBay), bat necklace (Alchemy Gothic via Kate's Clothing), pewter bone hoops (Martha Rotten)

I love the hem line on this dress!!!

Thank you for reading, until next time!

  1. A Hot Topic dress? Well, so it's apparently true that a person with an eye for outfits can shop their garments in any shady shop and still look dashing :D But no, this dress looks surprisingly nice, it seems so so soft and I'd love to see it with a mid-calf tulle skirt underneath <3

    1. It is shockingly nice! I still can't believe it's fully lined, has a nice weight to it and has a fantastic style over all. I shopped at Hot Topic in the 90s and had some beautiful garments (before they turned into what they are now) that I loved to death.

      Great styling suggestion and thank you for the compliment ;)

  2. I'm in absolutely envy of that outfit it's a gorgeous combination with the lace velvet dress and the Victorian high neck blouse. It's defiantly not something I would ever been creative of enough to put together. It looks amazing.

  4. I learned in the synth community (can you even call it that in Texas? It's like 10 people) that having a bunch of synths is called having "stacks on stacks". Well, dear - you should be the stacks on stacks Velvet Queen! I am so envious of your collection! Gorgeous pairing with the boots and jewelry.
