Do You Believe in Miracles?

A national survey shows that 73% of women believe in miracles; the finery you see here should convince the rest.

Wear it, and a window table becomes available at the Rainbow Room, a Marcello Mastroianni type invites you for a weekend in Cortina, and you get the part of Amanda in an upcoming revival of Private Lives.

Skeptics might try to explain this away by pointing out the fascinating glow of the velvet blouse, the rustle and sweep of the long silk skirt; but as Sir James Jeans observed: “The universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.”

Prepare to become a believer.

If you only buy one item, buy this and fast!
Although it's not my habit to review purchases, the velvet weskit blouse deserves every positive adjective I can give it. I had read the previous review (thank you!) and decided to take a chance. Oh, my. This garment is magic, and I believe it will cast its spell on every figure. The velvet is Edwardian-indulgent soft, and the subtly nipped-in bodice flatters. In other words, the lightness and flowing nature of the garment, along with it's fulsome, luxuriously-cut sleeves make it suitable for, well, suit affects, jeans and that lovely black and white midi skirt it has been paired with in the catalog and here online. The nine or so, petite, round covered buttons are also a decidedly Edwardian touch, and they certain blend well and cascade adroitly down the center of the weskit. Also, the garment's versatility make it a go not only buttoned up and worn alone, but if you've a smashing tank or other shell statement, pop the weskit on over that...

Everything I hoped for!
This top is everything I wanted! It is closely fitted, and worked well for me (Size 10 on a 38 bust, 30 waist). The self-covered velvet buttons are a detail I seldom see anymore this was common in my childhood during the 1950's. Finally, gorgeous clothes that are made for an hour glass figure! Thank you, J. Peterman!
