As you may already know, here at Soma & Ulte our style often has an edge to it because we love a good twist. However we do have our moments when we just fully embrace one direction. This week, we are having some fun with copper and tapping into our femnine side for the #OOTD. Connie likes to call this my "Snow White" look and I have to say I may be just a few woodland creatures away from it! Honestly, looking this girly is such a refreshing change from my favorite ripped jeans, flip flops, and husband tshirt :)
First off, this dress is made by June and Hudson, which always makes Connie happy because her nephew's name is Hudson and it cracks me up that I would have a company with an adorable 3 year old. They're sold at Nordstrom, which is where the velvet caught my eye. We always love shooting it because (as you can see) the fabric has a metallic glow to it that makes it shine bright in the light. It's almost as sparkly as the copper stars on my tree! Although it is not as crazy of a trend as it was last year, velvet is back for winter and it's as luxurious as ever.
What makes this #OOTD particularly feminine and flirty are the ruffles down the front and back. The plunging lines create a bit of sex appeal as the dress does cover most of the body to about the bottom of the knee.
I particularly love how the ruffles cascade down, which creates a very romantic feel. My only gripe about it is if you have downward sloping shoulders like I do, you'll need to use double sided fashion tape to keep the shoulders from falling!
And as the icing on the cake, I found this (almost) perfectly matching chiffon headband from Anthroplogie. It's got a knot at the top, which make it look like it could be a bandana I threw on, but it's on a stable band. My slippery hair doesn't have time for those shenanigans! And, ya know, since I was just at Disneyland, I can definitely see now how having curly dark hair and a crown-like hair accessory could really give off princess vibes.
