Velvet on a cold, stormy night....

A 1930's Velvet Gown

Velvet accessories


Does anybody apart from me find these pictures absolutely breathtaking? I love velvet: the feel, the shine, the dark, rich colours. some of those dresses are just amazing.
At the moment i really want a velvet blazer. that would be amazing. Probably in a dark purple *sigh*
Yesterday my mum and i found a beautiful antique velvet dress- it is floor length and has the top part (from the neckline to just under the boobs, and the sleeves) velvet, with gorgeous roping in the same colour. The sleeves are all droopy, and it really feels like a dress straight out of Romeo and Juliet or something. And to make it an even better buy, it was only $8. so exciting!
Sorry about the lack of posts- my laptop is broken, so i am having trouble doing anything at the moment. I just came back from melbourne, where i used to live, and i went over with my laptop, my camera, my ipod and my phone. I returned only with my ipod. I am going to DIE without my technology. My phone was stolen when i was shopping, my laptop broke and i forgot my camera. What to do, what to do.
Anyway i hope my lovelies are having a good time doing whatever it is they're doing, and now im off to write a draft of my next post so i wont be so boring all the time!
Love and live light!

I feel exactly the same way about velvet. I think its the most luxurious textile. It exudes beauty and old-fashioned glamour. I would live in velvet if I could :) And agreed, I would love a great jewel toned velvet blazer for fall! <3 great blog (with a perfect title I may add :)
