Here are some of our favorite responses from the Midnight Velvet Star of the Month Sweepstakes entry forms we collected in April 2015.

How do you define your personal sense of style?

  • Mine, all mine, relaxed and signature
  • I define my style as something I’ve referred to as “Amberifical Couture”, you see I’m not that once in a million kind of girl…. I am a once in a lifetime kind of woman! 
  • tasteful, dignified, classy 
  • glamour, classy and sexy
  • Personable, with a hint of Mystery
  • I just got to be me!
  • Exotic but tasteful
  • As a plus-size woman, I choose to set a standard in class and elegance that transcends size.
  • Traditional With Sleek and Stylish Updates
  • I consider myself to be very creative, so I create my own styles, using various color schemes.

How would you define your home decorating style?

  • Mixture of styles.
  • I like both Contemporary and traditional styles, I actually combine both. I buy items that express my unique taste and that compliment my space. 
  • Tranquility is the key.
  • Expensive, eclectic, exotic, exclusive, and exclusively discriminating. In addition, colorful, impeccable accentuation with a earth tone foundation. Including sculptured and double paneled room dividers embroidered on fabric with my favorite animals: Lion, Elephant, Giraffe, Black Bear, Brown Bear, horses, and the Polar Bear. All with the essence of nurturing nature including the sky, trees, birds flying in the firmament, and the seashore embraced with the sunset.
  • Comfortable yet classy. I like my home to be unique and looking like a million bucks but yet it is comfortable, so my family and guests feel right at home.
  • I would say my home decorating style is a little on the wild side. I love animal prints, gold and silver accents in my bedroom but tend to tone it down for the living room/den area.

I am allowed to make my selection with the comfort of knowing I have the options of shopping on line or ordering by phone 24 hours a day. Also having plus sizes available is a big advantage.
