I wrote about the Velvet style trend in August (see here) and it appears there is no slowing down. Many style forecasts for winter 2017 are still showing lots of velvet. Let’s dub velvet the “fabric of the year”!

Catherine’s Long Velvet Coat
Now I want to show you something that I have treasured for years.
This long velvet coat was my mother’s coat. I’m not sure how old the coat is. My mother passed away in 1953 when she was 35. I imagine she had this coat in her 20s so I guess it might be 75-80 years old. I know the coat originally had a fur collar which was removed before it was given to me. The first time I wore it was for my high school prom which was 50 years ago! This is the only personal item I have that was Catherine Rose’s. I am saving this for Lolo, my granddaughter.
Velvet, for me, just brings out the memories and I become very sentimental. Does velvet stir any emotions in you or is it only me?!!
LOOK GREAT | FEEL GREAT | DO GREAT!
