I quite like the fact that velvet is back in fashion, although I’m yet to find my perfect piece of velvet attire!
I really like this dress, but the cut out back puts me off because it just makes underwear an issue!
How gorgeous is this body?! I love it, and if I had the figure I think i’d definitely buy it!
