dressed up like a lady: Penguin dress

Jul 30, 2008

Penguin dress

This dress is made of really simple cotton, but the styling is so tuxedo-ish that it always makes me want to seat people at a 1950's Parisian restaurant or accept the Oscar for Best Actor.


Dress: Sugar 17 via TJ mother effin' Max
Shoes: Fairy Tales Are True via UO
Clutch: vintage via the Getup
