Plus Sized OOTD | Blue Velvet

This outfit was one of my choices for New Years Eve, I did end up picking something else which you can see here, but I loved this dress and necklace combo so much I just had to show you. Sorry that I don't have a face in any of these pictures, I was having a make up free day and I managed to pull some very unattractive faces lol.

Blue Velvet Dress
Blue Velvet Skater Dress: New Look
Lace Shrug: Matalan
Necklace: ASOS
Tights: Primark

I got this dress a while ago (it still had the tags on, oops) and I had never got around to wearing it. Despite that it's velvet, not a fabric renowned for being very flattering, I think it's quite slimming. Not to mention the colour is one of my all time favourites. I picked up the necklace about a month ago, it reminds me of the House Of Harlow necklaces, but obviously it was a tenth of the price. I'm really loving mixing fabrics at the moment and this lace shrug happened to go with this dress pretty well, I think anyway.

I honestly never thought I would be a fan of velvet (again), my mum used to dress me in it all the time when I was younger, but then I never thought I would wear leggings again either, boy how times change.

What do you think of mixing fabrics, are you a velvet fan?
