Just A Touch Of Purple

If you haven't seen the Natalie dress I offer in my shop www.chubbycartwheels.com then let me fix that for you now.  It first came about by the lovely body positive warrior and fat fashion babe, Natalie Hage, who posted on Facebook that she was in the market for a dark green velvet dress.  I immediately PMed her and said I would love to help make that for her.  I even happened to have the perfect dark green velvet already in stock for my shop so it was meant to be.  The dress she wanted was a shortened skater skirt and a fitted top with short sleeve.  I love customizing pieces for people so I was excited to make this.  I sent it to her and shortly after she received it I got a message in my PM box with some stunning photos of her in it.  As she started posting the pictures around on her social media I noticed it was getting a very positive reaction.  So I decided to add it to my shop for others to be able to get without having to make ordering the custom piece too difficult.  It has now become my best selling item in the 3 years I have been open.  Thank you Natalie. :)

A major perk of making all the clothes in the shop myself I was able to make my own Natalie dress in a color I have wanted a dress in for a while now.  This gorgeous silver/grey velvet.  But it needed a bit more to make it really pop so I pulled a little inspiration from Clueless by wearing a white collared button down blouse under the dress paired with some purple tights for a plash of color.  I love this look because it's casual enough with my green purse but take away the under shirt and pair it with some fun flats and a clutch it can become a dressier piece for an evening out.  I love clothing that has versatility.  It's eco friendly and spares me from constantly buying new pieces all the time when I can just add or take away with this dress to create different looks.  Especially when you get this dress in black.  The possibilities are endless.

  3. ooooh, I can't decide which colour I like better!! I really love the velvet, it looks so beautiful, soft and luxurious, but the cut it so trendy/edgy! It's just all around awesome!
