Amphorae were pottery vessels created to hold and transport goods in the Greek and Roman world; some were even highly decorative and given as prizes, or used to hold the ashes of the dead. Join me as I delve into the vessels of history...

Favorites- Cocoon Coats
It's not hard to see where they got their name, and with those slinky dresses of the late nineteen-teens through the thirties not hard to see why cocoon coats stayed in fashion for so long either.
Whether it's an original or a modern take on the classic, like this blue velvet version, they are just stunning in their simple, sumptuous lines.
I have an emerald-green evening gown, and was inspired by this picture to get some teal-green and gold burn-out velvet to make a similar coat to wear with the dress.
