Mystery. Fantasy. Unpredictability. Beauty. Artistry. Subtlely.

The six words that form the title describes what I found In Noir Velvet.

The first picture I saw, that says “Sore eyes; have their unfair habits,” felt like a quaint door in a mysterious city of old.

The title Six Words Stories screams skillful artistry, for how could one write a story in six words? La fille in the Noir Velvet coat has done it a hundred and sixty-one times and counting.

Pictures after pictures ooze fantasy and beauty. However, I felt surprised and sometimes almost shocked at the unpredictability behind the photos. Look at this image of a hand that seems to be from a plastic mannequin. Or this pompous pink bouquet of roses. How about a pure white and delicate flower?

The subtle messages strangely tie in with the beautiful pictures and made me question myself time after time.

All of these combined were so powerful, gripping, and influencing that I immediate took to writing the descriptions in just six words for all the four blogs in Blogging 101 Day Eight: Be a Good Neighbour.

At the end of the day, I asked myself, “In Noir Velvet what?”  In Noir Velvet, I can find what I would never expect to find, like in a closet of unfamiliar clothes and mannequins.

    Hey Cocoa,

    This post is beautifully inspired and expressed.
    I visited Noir after seeing your recommendation yesterday and found it interesting.

    I have an easier time reading on your site now ( No need to use CTRL +F anymore)
    I hope it’s the case with others as well.
    Good night,
