black velvet






One of a kind Velvet dress, American Gold

ONEOFAKIND. I couldn’t believe my eyes when Suzanne from American Gold emailed me and told me that she had made three one of a kind versions of a dress from the fall 10 collection, and that one of them was for me! Last week my “sheer black velvet burnout dress with slight bell sleeves and a fringe hem” arrived and it couldn’t be more perfect!!
Just had to do a 60’s inspired make up to go with it;)

I can’t thank you enough Suzanne, I will wear it until it falls apart!
