Green velvet dreams

Mmmm green velvet… one spring I was at Woodbury Common, fell into Etro, and saw a very light-weight, silk velvet dress, flutter sleeves, faded paisley print, kind of 1930's silhouette… left it there because while I have a weakness for paisley on velvet, I need dark green, forest green, real green, with my velvet. And I just got off the Ralph Lauren site, lovely sale, lovely dark green velvet dress, v-neck, 30's skirt, started its life at $1200, came to me at $229. Just to be sure checked the UK site. If you ever wondered whether empire is dead! Yes, the UK site is running a sale, but the sale price is £ 297. That comes to $475 US. I did OK. Expecting dress tomorrow or the next day. And just told the computer to learn to spell Etro. Any company that can do summer-weight velvet needs more attention. Oh, and just so you know, the dress is even better without the stupid garrison belt. J.Crew has a lot to answer for.

As Alice Roosevelt Longworth said, if you've got anything bad to say, sit next to me! No, really, please remember to be kind, and don't say anything fred's mother would not approve of (Diner's mom didn't approve of anything. Including fred.)
