{Silk Velvet Dress from Hong Kong Trip Fabric}

Of course we did get some up market shopping done at shopping centers on both sides of Hong Kong harbor when we were at the First International Conference on Mushroom Biology and Mushroom Products in Hong Kong. As a result I got this fabulous silk velvet fabric...
The Conferene got organized by the Department of Biology of the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the UNESCO Network for Microbial Resource Centers.
We did stay at the +Royal Park Hong Kong Hotel from 23-26 August, 1993. Yes, quite a while ago but such regal fabrics are timeless and I will keep my dress; if only for fond travel memories!
My seamstress in Indonesia, did turn it into this button down dress, pattern from the German Burda magazine.
Husband Pieter in matching gray silk sportscoat and silk tie from Bachrach
This silk velvet has a very nice and soft relief pattern. The dress has silk lining from Britex Fabrics in San Francisco where I frequently shopped, whenever we did some consulting work in California.
Pink pearls are from +Escada Outlet Store with matching earrings with a pink pearl, bought at a gift shop of the Camino Real hotel where we walked from our Hyatt Regency hotel stay, for 3 free nights after our consulting work of two weeks in Mexico.
Matching scrunchy, made to wear with pony tail...
That's the bonus if you keep your size for decades and it's a nice combination of treasures from several countries.

  3. Your dress is very lovely, Mariette!
    With pearl neckless and earrings, and matching scrunchy, you look very elegant and beautiful. I agree good fabrics are timeless. And you can wear them as you keep your size! Sigh, I've been struggling with my size lately.

    Have a lovely evening and great new week xoxo

      Thank you and yes I do love pearls as well... The matching scrunchy is always handy when wearing a pony tail. Such quality silk fabric will last for decades; provided I keep my size...!
      It can be tough at times, I even had some problems right after surgery when you are a lot less active.
      Enjoy your July week.
      Hugs,

  18. Mooie jurk..staat je goed, en zulke stof is inderdaad tijdloos....mooi zoals jullie alles op elkaar afstemmen...dat zie je niet veel meer..ik moet nog steeds het stuk krant opzoeken, maar heb er even niet zoveel tijd voor, komt nog wel...

    1. Beste Marian,
      Als iets niet al te wild is dan is zo'n stof inderdaad tijdloos.
      Hier in Georgia zijn ze gelukkig nog best conservatief en voor mij mag dat ook!
      Mask je been zorgen meid; wat in een vat zit verzuurt niet.
