Fashion: Kate Towers Dress & secrets

August 31, 2012


Finally!
More pictures than you can shake a Gucci stick at
of me in a Kate Towers Go Ask Alice gown in its
fairytalelovely and marigoldlicious glory.
I have never heard of a Gucci stick, and yet...I want one.



It is a comfy comfy cotton with 
amazing raw, formed by hand
ruffles that sing.



(4-minute photo shoot by my husband.)







I imagined a shoot of the dress in a meadow
or the forest behind our home, but this
vintage romantic girl in the city
schtick has its charms too.



And this is the part where I tell you secrets:
Had to photoshop tragic wrinkly neck stuff and did it miserably!
I'm sure I'll get used to this turkey-ish skin.
Oy. Not today.

Peace to you right where you are.

  4. GAAAHHHH! I love the dress, i love what you said, and i love you! You look freakin gorgeous in that good lord almighty marigold masterpeice! And it's even cotton!!!?? I think you need to take a ride out of the city and run around in a meadow in that dress, barefoot, getting photos too... it's beggin for it! I think the dress needs it's own blog, featuring it in Paris, in a meadow, in a closet... you get the picture...

  6. Well said Michele. Beautiful women are NOT perfect.. they make the most out of what God gave-um (that's the shot off the mountain part!) and then the rest is all about inner spiritual beauty and a sparkle in the eyes.. ALL of which YOU have. Gorgeous!

    Have a wonderful weekend Michele :)

  14. The dress is beautiful on you. I'm impressed with your photoshop skills, but I'm sure you would have looked just as lovely as it was (though your great to tell, we are all in the same boat).

  15. Are you kidding me?!! You are absolutely GORGEOUS!!! That is one proud hubby... being able to take those pics! He's thinking, "DANG!"

  18. You look like a real fashion model, my friend! I love the dress, I would like to wear that one too. Is your hubby's photo shoot in NYC?? I'm originally from Astoria, NY and I adore that big building view. Thanks for coming by pretty lady.

  19. You look fabulous!

    And yes, I'll shout with you
    (although I could swear you could be a swimsuit model... ),
    but so liberating that we don't have to be,
    just healthy and comfortable in our skin...

  20. sooooo liberating! i just need to remind myself now and again.

    thanks for all the shouting!!! keep it comin.

  21. You look great, but I feel your pain! I hate getting old. What I find frustrating is so many women in my area have something done to their face( Botox, fillers, face lift) and it makes you feel older. Can't we all just get older naturally and graciously!

  22. gorgeous dress especially on your gorgeous self...why are we sooo hard on ourselves? i have swimsuit model legs, but my upper body keeps growing more boobs in new places.

    ReplyDelete
  23. 'more boobs in new places' made my night, erin.

    ha! thank God we don't HAVE to be swimsuit models.

  24. Don't be so hard on yourself -- you're gorgeous! These photos are truly divine...I love the soft finish, and I must ask if that's simply the lighting in the room or if PS had something to do with it?

    ReplyDelete
  25. thanks, mandi.

    being hard on myself is a special talent i have!

    the lighting was phenom natural light at the waldorf astoria. i actually don't use photo shop. just occasionally lighten pics up in picmonkey.

    :)

  26. Oh Michele I think you are stunningly beautiful. To me you look like a moviestar!
    Love the dress too!
    Just like Erin describe I also have strange boobs growing in wrong places. ;-)
    Have a wonderful day sweetie!
    love from Susanne

  28. You look gorgeous Michele, not everyone can wear that shade of yellow...like me for instance...I look like I'm dead....and your figure is great!!! Robx

  29. Oh silly woman, you are beautiful, truly, inside and out, no Photoshop required... I mean that completely.

    That said, I do understand. I'm 40 in a few months and it is kinda killing me... I see lines that weren't there yesterday and I feel like my youth is escaping my grasp as everything is heading south. The ladies at work are all 'faked up' to the max (hair extensions, lashes, botox, fake tan, fake boobs, I'm not even exaggerating, the list goes on) and the pressure to fight the process every step of the way is strong! But when I think of women I admire - the ones I feel that are truly beautiful - these are the ones that are kind and funny and smart and interesting and interested. Not all faked up with not a line on their face. And that makes me feel better. Most of the time.

    That dress is divine and you look divine in it. Your hubby is a lucky man ;) xxx

  30. So FAB that you did a photo shoot with your hubby! Right on! I LOVE that real women are not super models. Real women have chin hair, and crazy body stuff that appears outta nowhere with a hot flash to boot. LOL.
    Big love,
    Love your SITE !
