Black velvet coat for women

It was a light easy quick read but. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. What I mean is that Jill's optimism comes through in many scenes - there are always struggles, but the world is generally a positive place if your heart is open to wonder. The story has a reach plot, filled with plenty of detail to find yourself in the 1960's and then turning the page to find yourself in today's San Francisco. How large are the odds that two women from two different eras would connect through an article of clothing? Both I've been wanting to read this one since the first time I read the synopsis for it, and I'm happy to say that it was well worth the wait. .

What Goes With a Black Velvet Blazer?

Two women, separated by a half-century become connected through an abandoned velvet coat with a rhinestone pin and a mystery key in the pocket. Flashing back and forth from 1963 to the present, with a black velvet coat and rhinestone brooch as the connection. Throughout the book, we are treated to alternating points of view. Hall enchants her readers with two separate storylines — one from the 1960's, the other, present day. Very disappointing to see so much promise go to waste. Anne begins to research this woman's mysterious disappearance and one of my favorite parts of the book is how their stories interweave, both through coincidence, and through the artistic creations Sylvia's story inspires Anne to make.

Every woman should have a luxe formal velvet jacket in her party wardrobe. Hall has written a most amazing debut novel, and I can't wait to see what she offers us next. She finds an old key in the pocket and her creative mind goes into overdrive. Sylvia and Anne are both lovable and relatable characters, and I silently cheered for both of them to find their forever happy place. Alternating chapters between a struggling artist in present-day San Francisco and an heiress living in 1963, kept my interest long after bedtime.

The rest doesn't quite piece together in full circle for me to be entirely amazed, and some of the highlights of the story fell flat when I expectantly desired to explore more. I know this was probably meant to be enchanting, lighthearted, and inspiring, and at some points it does make you feel some of that magic, but not overall. Well, this was just fun. Anne McFarland is a struggling artist in San Francisco when she discovers the Dior black velvet coat in a thrift shop. I won't give anything away, but from trips to Tiffany's to the process of creating art based on a muse from the past, this book has something for everyone looking for a little magic. Make your velvet jacket stand out and wear it over a neutral sweater with dark and flat loafers.

The Black Velvet Coat by Jill G. Hall

A very well written story, told through Ann as well as Sylvia Van Dam, the original owner of the jacket and how things turned out to be. In 1963 we meet Sylvia Van Dam, a young heiress and socialite who is struggling with her role in life and society. The coat inspires Anne to look into Sylvia. The settings include San Francisco, Arizona, and New York, and the two time periods are the early 1960's and the present day. Anne is an struggling artist, hoping for her big break. A velvet jacket adds texture to a contemporary outfit such as a graphic-printed blouse and vivid-hue pants with pumps. She has interviewed some of the most famous people in the world and covered stories for Beyond Cinema, Hollywood.

I was with both characters along the way. She buys a black velvet coat at the thrift store. Giving this book 3 stars. What ties the two ladies together is a beautiful black velvet coat, originally owned by Sylvia and recently purchased by Anne from a thrift shop. I really want to love this book, however, the characters as well as plots did not develop fully for me. They both will learn valuable lessons about true love, searching for enlightenment and finding their true destiny. Both time periods were accurate and true to life even though we saw the glamorous side in 1963 and a more gritty side in the present day.
