When I first tried on this blue velvet dress my initial thought was to pair it with metallic accessories. Then I saw Anna Kendrick wearing two different blue velvet dresses on the red carpet with black heels and was immediately inspired. While I thought the strappy black shoes Anna wore with her Marc Jacobs dress were perfect for the mini length, my dress had more of a minimalist vibe, like the Gabriella Hearst dress the actress wore to Elle‘s Women in Hollywood Awards. So I went with a simple ankle strap sandal. I just got these black tassel earrings, which I felt added the perfect touch of holiday spirit to the look.
