Velvet - Holiday 2017


Velvet Crush





"The velvet of her paws, Her coat that with tortoise vies, Her ears jet and emerald eyes, She saw; and purred with applause. " - Thomas Gray



Velvet is everywhere once again in 2017.  The soft, rich and sublime fabric is forefront and center setting standards high.   Jeans, tops, handbags, accessories and so much more are being lavished in a bit of vibrant velvet.  Velvet has always made a statement throughout history donned by royalty and wealthy families and of course anyone who wants a little luxury in daily living.  In the 1920's, evening gowns and shawls were designed in velvet and worn to impress.  Yesterday classics still ring true for the holiday season.

What is top of mind this jolly ole season?  Here are a few pieces that will provide the royal treatment.  Get ready to walk the red carpet, hear the bells rings with merriment all the while draped in magnificent velvet concoctions.
