Having been friends forever, when one of us is in the midst of a fashion obsession, the other one automatically also goes on high alert .
So needless to say I have been burning the midnight oil, on the lookout for a red velvet dress for ages now. Of course the fashion universe is one very contrary place, so I keep coming across dresses that have elements of what we are looking for, but never all the elements together.
Velvet yes but in blue not red. Red dresses sure but not in velvet.
Three Floor Fashion is one such contrary site. Full of lovely little features but none of them combining to make one perfect dress. I've featured their dresses on here many times, despite the fact that even in my younger thinner days I would never have worn, yet somehow every collection calls to me in a way that I don't really understand.
Loving the mesh, midnight blue velvet and brocade in this 'Blue Steel' dress...
Or how about the 'Lady in Waiting' ( such an apt name) in mesh and red, just sadly no velvet!
Or given Queen Michelle's love of all things medieval, how perfect are the sleeves and neckline on this 'Instant Spark' top and dress . Loving this...
Having said I would never wear TFF, I can happily imagine finding a little corner of my wardrobe for this 'Infinity' skirt.
But I'm guessing at this point the search for the elusive red velvet dress ( at an affordable cost) is an infinite quest...
