Velvet Vixen

"Happiness is not determined by what’s happening around you, but rather what’s happening inside you. Most people depend on others to gain happiness, but the truth is, it always comes from within."

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! What is everyone's plans for New Year's Eve? I've had this vintage long sleeve green velvet dress a while back at a local vintage shop in Florida. I enjoy mixing vintage and modern pieces the most in fashion. The only problem with blogging about vintage items is that the items aren't available to purchase any longer. To make it easier for you guys, I'm going to search similar items and post them. One of my favorite pieces of jewelry is this 'N' brooch. Been spending all day watching Robert Dinero movies. Pretty sure you guys don't know how infatuated I am with him. Finally got to test out my new camera lens. Here are the first pictures captured by it. Love how crisp the pictures come out.

wearing: vintage green long sleeve velvet dress (similar); ankle strap peep toe heels (similar); vintage fur

  16. NO YOU DIDN'T JUST THROW THAT ANIMAL OVER YOUR SHOULDER!! I LOVE IT!!! It made me smile. This is soooooo giving me like 40's attitude. All you need is that long cigarette holder! I love it. Cheeky, sexy, and a nod to the old school. You better do the damn thing Nadia. I love you for it.

  18. Absolutely love! I had a crushed velvet dress when I was younger, it was definitely on of my favorites... I should re-add one to my collection.
