Another integral part of kitsch - the black velvet painting.  Whether it be Elvis (i hope!), Jesus, a sad hobo clown, or a howling wolf, black velvet paintings rule.  So when I found this landscape velvet painting, I knew it had to become a dress.  Paired with 1970s silver metallic lurex!  It's my first cocktail dress in a while, what do you guys think?

Honestly I really dislike velvet paintings, but I am now of the firm believe that they should all become dresses because that is gorgeous. Well done
