25 Reasons Why this is the Perfect Holiday Long Sleeve Dress

November 11, 2017

Holiday long sleeve dresses are nothing new. If you saw velvet and cringed, stay with me! I was a non-believer but I will convince you with 25 reasons why this is the perfect Holiday  Long Sleeve Dress.

I have been seeing an array of velvet dresses make the rounds the last few holiday seasons. It has been as predictable as glittery dresses on New Years Eve, ugh, but I am finally convinced that there is nothing better than THIS velvet dress for the holidays!

I actually prepared this post as soon as I bought this gorgeous Betsey Johnson dress a couple of months ago and since then I have seen velvet everywhere!

    I love this so much because not two weeks I bought myself a long sleeved black velvet dress for a ton of the exact same reasons. And I wore it out last night and totally confirmed that my reasoning was 100% correct.
