The Vintage Velvet Dress | LittleEllieMae


Hello everybody! 

'Tis I- I have returned from my hiatus. I was merely overwhelmed with starting Year 13 (my last year at school- eek!) and so blogging had to take the back seat for a few weeks. I missed it a lot and so here I am again! 

Last week I visited Miss Ivy's Vintage Fair which is an event that I always look forward to! I adore being surrounded by hoards of vintage gems and amazingly eccentric and interesting people. 

My favourite purchase from the vintage fair was this GORGEOUS velvet dress. 



The label says the brand is 'Canda' for 'C&A'- thinking its originally from the 80s. 



I love the metallic bodice of the dress, the high neckline and beautiful velvet skirt. I really like velvet for this time of year so it will be perfect to wear in the upcoming months!



There's also a slit in the back which I think is a really unique and cool feature! I love how flattering this dress is- it hugs the figure without being too clingy, just perfect. 

For just £15, it is of such amazing quality and being a vintage piece, it has great personality. (and no-one else will have it!!)

As I said, I'm sure I'll be wearing this dress to death throughout the next few months! Gotta love a bit of metallic and velvet. 

What do you think of it? Let me know by tweeting me @LittleEllieMae or commenting below :) 

Have a great day!
