HAPPY HALLOWEEN! This dress is stunning for nightclubbing. Spectacular in dark green velvet; I loved finding this one. Such an unusual style. It’s the only gown I have with long sleeves and bare shoulders – not often seen, but was a Thirties style at one time. Very dramatic with the high neckline. The only drawback of gorgeous velvet clothing, if you have crowded closets, is that they need room to hang or will become wrinkled (like many other fabrics). So, since I don’t trust my own steamer with some special materials and don’t want the considerable expense of frequent trips to the drycleaners, these archive photos are less than ideal.

However, that’s what understanding the true magnificence of these garments and having a good imagination is all about. Hanging overnight above a tub of hot water also works – (the dress, not you). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
