We were rather taken with the Jean Shrimpton inspired outfits taking centre stage in the BBC TV drama, We’ll Take Manhattan. Did you see it? Well take note if you did because we’ve got a dress that fans of Doctor Who star Karen Gillan will be sure to take to! 
You’ll do a double take when you see how similar it is to the pea green shift dress that Karen can be seen wearing in the publicity shots taken for the programme. If you’d like to take advantage of this marvellous opportunity, there are a VERY limited amount available to buy NOW on our eBay page!
We’ve also taken the liberty of creating some colour and fabric variations on the theme so you may wish to take a chance and take two… or even three!
Take a look right now! And don’t take too long to take your choice… there’s only a few dresses available and they’re sure to be taken in next to no time!
Take it easy with Velvet Cave!

Christmas day is pretty exciting but when it comes to festive spirit, not much can compete with The Velvet Cave Buy it Now Bonanza!

At around 8pm tonight (GMT), we’ll be listing a sackful of sensational seasonal dresses on eBay. There’s luxurious scarlet and green velvets, sparkling silver and gold, cute collars and cuffs and even some fabulous fancy boots that any pixie would be proud of!

Since the glorious day is approaching rapidly, we thought we’d make your life simpler by listing everything as BUY IT NOW! The Velvet Cave elves have been working flat out to ensure that you won’t have to wait for any pesky auctions to finish. We’ll be loading up Santa’s sleigh as fast as we can and getting these precious gifts en route to the foot of your tree!

If you’re in the UK and buy something before the 22nd December then we can guarantee that you’ll have it by Christmas Day (with Special Delivery). If you’re outside the UK, you can look forward to receiving your parcel shortly after and what better way to see in the New Year than dressed up to the nines in a beautiful and inspirational Velvet Cave party dress?

You can see a selection of the dizzying array of seasonal delights that are on offer in the pictures above but be sure and check our eBay page as there’s plenty more to peruse!

Seasons Greetings from all in the Velvet Cave! x

Become a ’60s Style Icon this Christmas (without breaking the bank)!
In December of 2009, we visited London’s Pall Mall to view a collection of beautiful dresses that had belonged to the late Audrey Hepburn. These were being auctioned by Kerry Taylor Auctions and we knew that the prices were likely to sky-rocket! A particular favourite was Lot 309: a Rose Bertin scarlet velvet cocktail dress from 1967 (above, right).
As the festive season gets underway, why not take a leaf from Audrey’s book and get glammed up in a vintage red velvet cocktail dress? The gorgeous party frock that’s currently listed on the Velvet Cave eBay shop (above, left) is finished with a marabou feather trim and would positively sizzle at any Christmas or New Year shindig! It’s strikingly similar to Audrey’s choice but in order to own this one, you won’t need to steal a million!
