2 mama said there'd be days like these

my mother likes to follow rules. one of these rules is that there are certain fabrics that can only be worn at certain times of day. velvet is one such fabric.

today i am wearing a velvet dress. and all day i have been acutely aware of the fact that if my mother saw me, she would purse her lips, shake her head, cluck her tongue and say, caroline, velvet is a fabric of the night.

So does your mother prefer that velvet be worn at night? or is she saying that velvet is the fabric of hookers?

it's unclear. probably a combination of both.
