Card Couture

Back in April I was asked to share my thoughts on the link between greeting cards and couture for the magazine 'Progressive Greetings'. I had to answer some questions and submit a photo of my favorite fashion item which is my hand beaded Noa Noa silk velvet coat.





I found this stunning coat about four years ago now hidden in the corner of a Noa Noa store and it was the last one left and a lot less then half price. I loved the colour and sparkles instantly and just knew I had to own it. I had a great excuse to purchase it as the following week I had treated Faye to tickets for red carpet opening night of The Lion Witch and the Wardrobe which was a royal premier at the Royal Albert Hall.

Also in the same magazine we were nominated for Card sweep stake..............!

This coat looks stunning and what a great idea for a magazine feature too.
