Day 17: Velvet crush

I have a bit of a crush on velvet at the moment. Let me count the ways I love it so...
Its rich, opulent colours
Its sensual touch-me, feel-me texture
Its sophisticated, reassuringly expensive look
And add to that, the fact that it's a key trend this season, too

I think there's something rather decadent about wearing velvet during the day, so I've been searching for the perfect shift dress for ages. Need I say it would be the ideal day-to-night dress?

This one almost fits the bill - although I'd prefer a little bit more coverage on the top half for daytime. It's a close competitor for my Christmas dress though, which is why it makes day 17 of my Advent-calendar countdown. I adore the graceful fall and drape of the velvet - it's so flattering and forgiving, which makes this dress a blessing for all that Christmas feasting! And it's just £24.99 from H&M.
