Hi, everyone! It's Sammi from The Soubrette Brunette, and today I'm wearing an in-demand swap from the beautiful Jenna of Smitten. I'd been impatiently waiting for this deep red velvet number (with its gorgeous low back!) to arrive, and I finally got the chance to wear it for a night out at the theatre. I went to see the touring production of Rock of Ages when it came to Rochester (a college friend was in the cast) and then out for a friend's birthday, so I thought this ensemble would work nicely for the occasion. It has more of a grunge-bohemian feel than I normally go for, but I really loved this slight deviation from my ultra-girly style. I even got a chance to wear my Steve Madden combat boots, which often sit in my closet for months on end (even though I love them)!
Red velvet dress: swap from Jenna

Belt: from another dress

I just realized that I'm not the only one who opted for a slouchy hat/boots combination with this dress! Jessi took a similar approach, and I love her floral print boots with it! Ashley dressed this number down in a beautiful fashion, too. I loved Marisa's floral crown and bright peacock feather tights, and of course, Jenna's faux fur collar is divine!
Thanks so much to Jenna for allowing me to wear this luxe little number! It was the perfect dress for my evening out, and it's ideal for February! And speaking of February, I just celebrated my 1-year blogiversary over at The Soubrette Brunette, and I'm holding a great big giveaway to celebrate! You can get all the details and enter to win (prizes include a gift certificate to ModCloth and a bunch of other goodies!) here. Sorry for the personal plug, and have a terrific Tuesday! :)
