Velvet can crawl back into the hole from whence it came.

I really started loving velvet in november, but I think it was over done in the alexander wang show!

^ love that white velvet dress.. it looks very soft and less stiff to wear.
it kind of reminds me of those MJ did for his SS04 collection.

yes! definitely... the last dress i posted from this year's MJ collection also reminded me of some of his previous work... must have been that same collection.

i don't know if i could pull of something like that myself but in theory i love the look it

So much velvet!!! I can't say that i like this material but i associate velvet with vintage style and some vintage things are very chic sometimes.

^ that last dress is incredible!
A rather difficult color and material to pull off but it just looks wonderful.. I'm thinking the best way to go with velvet dresses is with that draped/20s shape, it adds a more natural volume. Also love the idea of a velvet scarf :p, but more in black, like those Ann Demeulemeester did a few seasons ago (for her menswear show, I believe).

i think the nanette lepore dresses are quite beautiful as well.. the way the light plays on that deep mossy green with the drapes and folds is really lovely

and i agree about those 20s shapes and silhouettes.. i think that's why the light colored MJ look and that last anna sui look is so successful and well done
