Fashion Inspiration: Kate Towers

GO ASK ALICE cotton gown/made to order

Many moons ago I raved about this

fashion designer’s lovely work,

and thanks to one of her sample sales,

I snagged a ‘Go Ask Alice’ dress from

Kate Towers.

(Above is a floor length version of her GAA in mustard).

this one sold to me!

My dress is a mini…to wear with tights,

leggings, or as a tunic over jeans.

A cottonlicious handmade dress makes my heart SWELL,

and you can find more here.

Loving the organic ruffles and hand-dyed

goodness which resulted in hues from butter to saffron.

The ivory ‘Go Ask Alice.’

The grey.

Omg, Kate.

The grey.
I am sort of losing my mind for this color.

Thank you, thank you, Kate

for sharing your gift

with the world

 and making a mini midwestern mama

feel like a major madonna.

Peace to you right where you are.

    I love this dress and wish I could wear something like that but busty women can't it makes us look top heavy! I want to see you in yours please!

    I hope you're enjoying your weekend!

    Love it! I'm looking for a simple shift – I'm concerned about the ruffles being too much .. I'm on my cell and need to take a closer look on my computer when I get home.

    i wondered if the dress would wear me instead of the other way around since i'm so petite. it actually feels just like wearing a scarf over a plain shift (and hides the turkey neck!). i'll ask my sis for a photo shoot.

    i took my mom shopping last night, and she has always been the classy lady in the family who is perfectly put together. i'm more of a wild child. as i looked at clothes, i told her i know i really need to start dressing like a grownup. so maybe in my 50s. 🙂

    No way! That dress should really be coming over to my home!

    Also LOVE the creme one – photo no. 2 from the back. Need to check if it also comes in gray.

    Just need to give my arms some attention. Lots of pushups are in order…

    Happy new week to you lovely.


    P.S Pictures of you + dress, please!

    Oh, la, la! I love fashion and this one is a winner, M.

    Have a blessed week!

    I LOVE the yellow mini you snagged, it's gorgeous and so spring-summery!

    I've missed you, but still continuing my blogging hiatus as work is busy and every non-work second is being spent outdoors (gardening, alfresco dining, reading a magazine on my bench) as the sunshine has been GLORIOUS here!

    Hope you're doing well, lovely!

    Meera xx
