1940s Holiday Gown
Woman in Velvet.
Why is a woman in velvet always fascinating?
I think she is like the sea.
Not any sea. Not a sunny sea or a stormy sea, but one with long waves coming in on a smooth beach under a full moon.
The first time I noticed it, the pale fire rippling along the edges of the waves as they curl and break progressively down the shore, and the fire on the sea swells further out, the sight took my breath away. I must have watched for an hour.
A woman in velvet is like that, especially by candlelight. The light makes the folds of the velvet glow, and the glow changes with each move she makes.
Fascinating. Although the fact that she’s a woman may have something to do with it, too.
