The shape of this dress reminds me of the sleeveless nude
Here again is black velvet. I love love LOVE black velvet! Can you just please take a moment to imagine yourself wearing this dress with a pair of tall black suede boots…A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
This velvet block shift dress I think is very pre-wedding Kate…very 2007/2008 Kate. We’ve seen her wear a few dresses like this way back then. In fact, the style of this particular dress reminds me of another Topshop dress Kate wore back in 2007:
If I didn’t already own a million black dresses and hadn’t just purchased a pair of Kate’s Rumba Aquatalia boots, this gorgeous dress would already have been bought by yours truly and on its way to my place right now via the mail man!
I know what your thinking….another black dress? While many of us have too many black dresses to count (myself included!) can a girl really have too many black dresses? Short black dresses are the staple of elegant and classic lady-like dressing. I think this dress is beautiful and very Kate inspired not because I’ve seen Kate wearing something that looks like this…but because the dress is very simple, yet elegant. The detail around the collar bone is what really makes the dress special. And I think this is something Kate herself lives by: simple details make the outfit! I love this dress because the shape accentuates the womanly figure, it cuts just above the knees, and the small simple tuck neck detail near the shoulders at the top of the dress draws attention to the neckline and makes a very classic fashion statement.
Be sure to check out Topshop’s website at least once a week. They have new stuff added every week…and might I add some really nice stuff!
P.S. Fellow Canadians, be sure to check out your local Hudson Bay Company store or the Bay’s online store. They carry a decent selection of Topshop merchandise!
