Cherry Velvet “Natalie” Dress
I have always admired this vintage cut but have never worn a dress in this style. May I say WOWZERZ?! This dress came in at least one size too large and STILL had me looking like a siren. I implemented a hot pink belt to help a little on the fit – excuse the loose belt look as I wasn’t feeling very well and forgot to tighten it before the shoot.
This dress in comfortable to wear and giving on the size. The color combination of blue and a minty blue/green is a great eye catcher and fun to play with. Since my shoe gave isn’t up to par as of yet I went ahead and popped the style with a contrasting Hot Pink! I tied the color in with my belt and platform heels but you can do so on other accessories like the necklace and/or bracelet and earrings.
I can see myself wearing this dress to work or just about any occasion. I can guarantee you will be given many compliments when you wear it. I liked it enough to add it to my cyber closet with Gwynnie Bee in the smaller size to see how I look in it fitted. Ha!
I attempted to do the beautiful retro Victory Rolls but I FAILED miserably. BUT my hair looks amazing after curling and pinning it for at least an hour. *Rolls Eyes*
Makeup was the simple natural look with the rose cheeks and retro red matte lips. I believe it worked great with this look.

I’m wearing size 3X but believe the 2X will fit much better. This dress is currently available on line in Size XS-3X at the following link: Cherry Velvet Natalie Dress Link
