VELVET LUXURY

VELVET, is my favorite fabric. Let me explain why...


As a child I used to play dress up in all my mother's clothes. The most standout piece was her matching blue velvet skirt and corset, one she had custom made for her 50th millennium New Years Eve birthday party and I will always remember her in it...

Similar to this one pictured above, the skirt was my favorite, because it hit me knee-length, and billowed out as I walked around, singing to "Blue Velvet" by Tony Bennet, on my tape cassette. Music devices may have changed but the chicness of velvet certainly has not...

Velvet has a timeless feel, it never looks modern, which is why it adds so much to any modern or contemporary space..especially velvet sofas

Kim Kardashian's living room (shown below), gets an added touch of glamour with these crushed velvety couches, without which the room would be too contemporary for my taste...

Of the many chic elements I love about the show Mad Men, the headboard in the Draper's bedroom is perhaps the best. What could be more plush then a tufted velvet headboard?

Um, wearing it! 

Fashion loves velvet, but only when done right!

It gives a whole new meaning to "living in luxury," and of course the expert, and goddess of style, Rachel Zoe, knows how to rock a mustard yellow Marc Jacobs velvet gown

I would take this couch in any color, but something about this mossy, green shade just makes me feel like jumping in and taking a long afternoon nap...

So chic for fall! I would love this to go with a bright colored tank leftover from summer and a warm neutral pashmina! Such casual elegance!

If you have to hold it all night it should be soft and silky, right?

  2. Hello! I found it on http://www.treadwaygallery.com/ONLINECATALOGS/MARCH2006/1101-END.html, it was from 2006 on an auction site, I believe it has probably been sold but you could check out their site and see if they still have it, or perhaps know where you can find something similar. It's absolutely beautiful!
