Red Velvet

Plus Size Velvet Dress
Holiday parties are still going strong and I had two this weekend and I literally wore velvet the whole weekend. To the more casual party, I went with just a velvet top on and black pants. I wore this dress to the dressier one. Even if you don't want to commit to doing a whole velvet look you can still include velvet by adding in a top or blazer. Adding a velvet blazer to dark denim can dress up a casual look for less dressier holiday parties. I love velvet blazers and they can turn a casual look into holiday festive in a matter of moments. Whatever look you come up with, just have fun. The holidays are reserved for wearing fun fabrics, sequins, and whatever glitter you can drum up. Personally, I plan to enjoy the season, because it doesn't last long and before you know it...it's over. 

Style Notes:  This dress is in a 3X and has stretch throughout.  The front lace is sheer, but the back is not. The bottom of the dress is double layers, so it makes the fabric to be more forgiving.  Find this dress at MonifC, use the coupon code: NYE40 to receive 40% off.
