After seeing this fabric and color, dievca’s Camo Shawl Collared Coat might not make the cut anymore….
What do you think?
Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed, with a short dense pile, giving it a distinctive soft feel. By extension, the word velvety means “smooth like velvet.” Velvet can be made from either synthetic or natural fibers.
Velour or velours is a plush, knitted fabric or textile similar to velvet or velveteen. It is usually made from cotton, but can also be made from synthetic materials such as polyester. Velour is used in a wide variety of applications, including clothing and upholstery.

dievca keeps seeing that velvet is still in the works for this year.
She always thinks that it is a classic fabric which calls to mind very traditional pieces: Red Velvet Hunting Coat, Black Velvet Riding Helmet, Red Velvet Children’s Dress, Black Velvet 1980’s Power Dress.
Monse takes velvet in a different way:
Non-traditional colors, draping, interesting silhouettes.
dievca doesn’t have any plans for purchasing a Monse piece any time soon, but she is planning to wear a Velvet Dress she had made in London. The Designer offered dresses with interesting velvet colors – but dievca had to go with the one which was best for her coloring. Sadly, the Designer has stepped away from her business to pursue another project – if she comes back to Fashion, dievca will share her information with you. The Designer was an absolutely lovely person to work with. Beautiful inside and out.
dievca expects that Master will be interested in see His submissive after she attends the first Gala of the Year, in Velvet.
she’ll be adding:

dievca has been on a kick about Velvet for the Winter…Green is her color.
This gorgeous wrap top from Rick Owens kept popping up in her searches – but at $1349, its way beyond her reach. (and the fact that dievca has a heck of time wearing a wrap blouses. “No Ms. DVF, wrap dresses/blouses are NOT for everyone…”)
Tactile velvet and a flattering draped neckline form this fitted top
Petrol blue velvet, draped v neckline, tie at side
Fitted silhouette, draped
Then dievca ran into the same top with the Godet Skirt in black. They look gorgeous together. Perfect for presenting to your Sir/Master in a Ladylike, yet Downtown Chic way. The skirt is $699…why is the top double the price of the skirt?
Velvet vs. Viscose
Styled with godets for an incredible, voluminous drape, Rick Owens’ calf-grazing skirt is an ultra-modern take on tailoring. We love how its asymmetric hem looks paired with bare legs and sky-high heels
Black fabric, godet seating for an asymmetric drape, hidden closure
Modern tailored drape, asymmetric length
