I got my new tripod on Saturday, and it feels SO good to finally share an outfit post again! I’ve missed blogging and have felt very odd not posting the last few weeks (aside from my weekly recaps, of course—but I don’t really count those).

When the theme ‘velvet’ was announced for this month’s Thrifty Six collaboration, I knew right away I wanted to style this blue, fish-like dress. I don’t wear velvet very often, let alone secondhand velvet. But I quickly remembered I brought this blue dress to school this quarter—with the highly unlikely hope that I would have a reason to wear it—and the velvet leopard print overlay fit the theme perfectly.
