I found this dress over a year ago and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I bought it without even trying it on, as I was confident it would fit as it was my size. When I got home I was crushed because I couldn’t even zip it up.
I know what you’re thinking….that I need to drop a few pounds before I could wear it, but to be honest, I didn’t think that was it. The zipper had this annoying little catch that didn’t allow the zipper to go up all the way, even if I wasn’t wearing it.
Determined to wear this dress, I actually had the zipper replaced…but it was still giving me trouble. I looked into all sorts of tricks to help a zipper glide more smoothly but nothing worked.
I really wanted to wear this for my recent photo shoot, so I took the dress out of the closet, and zipped the zipper up and down about a million times and it seemed to have gotten the kinks or whatever out of it. The first time I was able to get the zipper up while wearing it was a wonderful experience.
I love how these photo turned out and I can’t wait to wear this again!
I booked a photo shoot with Shannonlee and spent a wonderful four hours with her taking pictures at Casket Arts, a beautiful building in Northeast Minneapolis. I packed some outfits and high heels, and after an outstanding makeover at Rita Ambourn, I was ready for my photo shoot.
I had a wonderful time. My face hurt from smiling and I cannot wait to see the photos. I wanted to share some pictures from the day I hope you like them!
In the fall of 2016, I started modeling for Glamour Boutique, a store that specifically caters to the crossdresser and transgender community. Not too long ago, they interviewed me for for their blog and soon we started talking about doing some modeling for their new line of clothing. The photos were taken by the always fabulous Shannonlee. Shannonlee and I have done quite a few shoots in the past and I was thrilled to work with her again!
Here are some pictures of some of the behind the scenes action and candid moments. It was such a fun day and you can see the final photos here. Fun fact, the little tears in the paper are puncture holes from the stilletos I wore all day. Those heels were high and are serious business!
Not too long ago, I announced that I would be doing some modeling work for Glamour Boutique, a store that sells clothes, breast forms, makeup and shoes designed for the crossdresser and t-girl community.
I am thrilled to reveal some of the final photos that I shot with Minneapolis photographer Shannonlee of Fotofida. I’ve done quite a few photo shoots with her already and it’s always a thrill to work with her.
I am excited to share some of the final photos from that day. These and other photos are up on Glamour Boutique’s newsletter and website but you can also see more here. I hope you like them, too!
