Readers, I am delighted to share Cathy's silk dress photo shoot with you today -- in its entirety!
What fun we had galavanting around New York City, where my cousin received countless compliments on her smart frock as well as on her dewy complexion. The upside of high humidity is that it brings color to the cheeks.
Cathy loved the soft lines and cool feel of this silk charmeuse dress and found the tulip
sleeve detail to be especially flattering to her upper arms. She seems determined to put polyester behind her; hopefully she'll remain open-minded.
Without further delay, our photo shoot. As always, to see these photos full-size, please click any image and,
in Picasa, choose the album name, and then, in the upper left hand
corner, "Slideshow." (Those with mobile devices can click here.)
Hope you enjoy it and have a great day, everybody!
