Magazine World Versus The Real World


So here is the lovely image of one of my dresses on the cover of AS&E #80. The model, such a cutie, looks charming and serene.



My oldest daughter who lives in Texas sent me these pictures of her daughter wearing the dress. Miss Jorden is a bit of a wild thing and her mother who has a terrific sense of humor thought I might like to see what happens to my dresses in the real world.

You have got to love a real girl who can wear a fancy dress and turn a mean cartwheel at the same time!

  4. Now from where could that little lovely Jordan have inherited her wee bit of "wildness" can I suppose??? Sarah Minton

  5. I think it is wonderful to know that a dress so beautiful can be so real at the same time. Dresses this beautiful aren't meant just for a photo shoot. And the "real world" model is a beauty too!

  6. Just like a Timex, can take a likin' and keep on ticking. That's what makes your designs work.
