Did anyone else have a copious amount of velvet in their wardrobes in the 90’s?
I had a bunch – from velvet chokers to dresses to trousers and blazers I just couldn’t get enough of that soft, fluffy fabric! At the time my prized possession was an electric blue crushed velvet jacket, unfortunately it got lost during one of my international moves, fortunately velvet has reappeared on the runways and can easily be found on the racks at the thrift store!
