Opulent Velvet Vest
Looks That Kill.
150 years ago, this color was all the rage—rich, brilliant, and signifying wealth and good taste. Also poisonous. The green that had them all envious was made with a special ingredient—arsenic. They even put it in wallpaper and rugs. Not good, but not to worry in this case.
In this, the only thing that kills is the look.
