“I Wouldn’t Trade Her For Gold”.

20 Jan

Personally, I loved the gold-colored Isabel Toledo brocade sheath dress with matching coat. It had a less-traditional cut and feel to the bodice, but isn’t that what Michelle is all about anyhow? Less traditional? I’m okay with it!

As soon as I saw it this morning, I started humming “I wouldn’t trade her for gold”, a line from the song “Gold” by the band Interference from the original motion picture soundtrack, “Once“.

The color, dubbed as “lemongrass” by Toledo herself, the dress and coat were both made of lace layered over wool, for warmth. I saw it as a throwback to the 1950s, where many outfits were layered with lace and eyelet for a dimensional, elegant appeal.
