Velvet Crush #FVontheRoad

Velvet Crush #FVontheRoad

This color, this texture, this cut!! This Satlwater Luxe crushed velvet dress is just everything my fall velvet dreams are made of.  I recently found out about this brand after I stumbled into a local boutique (Mimi and Red)  and I loved their cute boho dresses.
John and I read about this epic ghost town on the border of Arizona. Naturally we packed up all our camping gear into the car (including my overflowing messy closet and way more shoes than I needed on a roadtrip) and headed out to check it out. I always love being alone on the road with him.  Some of my best memories are from being in the middle of a long stretch of road listening to nostalgic music. What we ended up finding in Arizona was a weird time warp wild west ghost town that was made into a museum. Complete with rooms, jails, banks, shops, bars, a hotel and a school. It was surprisingly big and there was NO ONE there when us crazies showed up… probably because it was almost 100 degrees out! To say I was melting in this velvet dress is an understatement! But how could I resist a backdrop like this?
You might have caught glimpses of our adventure wandering through this ghost town on my snapchat (@francescafelix) from earlier last month. We took so many photos I still haven’t even gone through them. Promise to share soon! xx
Wearing: Saltwater Luxe crushed velvet dress, Sunday Somewhere sunglasses, Indigo Road boots.

    This looks like such a fun spot to explore – and sounds like you enjoyed it too despite the heat! You look incredible in that velvet (quite possibly my favorite material on you) and I love your boots!

    Ok, seriously babe, that place sounds too good to be true!!! I definitely need to go there as I love places like that and I don’t care if it’s a 120 degrees, but you’ve got to show it to me, haha 😀
    Apart from that your outfit is amazing and fits well into the somewhat scary location as well.
    Have a great weekend!

    You look so stunning in this velvet dress babe! I actually really love styling velvet materials since I think it’s so unique and it’s always been hard for me to find velvet material clothing out there (especially in LA).
