I love velvet, in fact I’d happily live in a world filled with the stuff its perfect for chairs, sofas, cushions, bedding you name it. Where it gets a bad rep is when its used in fashion you soon get visions of Blossom’s floppy hat, Gothic long black Frock coats or bad stretch trousers from your Gran. But when its used well – think Christopher Kane, it can be one of the most striking fabrics plus everyone will want to hug you… that could go either way I guess. Anyway my point is that it shouldn’t work on a pair of Converse but it does, really, really well! I’m utterly obsessed with these and when they match the décor of your local pub that’s even better right? RIGHT? I’ve been eyeing up the Con’s in the sale and am tempted with the leopard print ones, you know I can’t resist an animal print!
