I'll get you, my pretty...



...and your little dog, too.
Seriously, Vogue people...it's for Halloween, right?
Ok, now we are all done kidding around. What's with the hideous Mrs. Roper Dress?


This is unattractive on so many levels...where to begin? That print! Those colors! I haven't see a wrist corsage since the Dark Ages when I was in college. That must mean that they mean for Miss Scarlett and the 60's den drapes to attend some festive occasion. Perhaps meeting Elvis in the Jungle Room?
And to think I was worried that my puffy sleeves might be over the top.
Trick or treat!

Wait, that black thing *isn't* a witch costume? As a coat, it has interesting bones but the bat decorations on the bottom of it and the witch hat show that they did not use the Macy's accessories wall wisely.

It is a hot bleeding mess. Horrible.

I thought the same thing about the print dress. The print is hideous. But then I looked at the line drawing. The sleeve looks very interesting. I was going to buy the pattern next time Vogue goes on sale to learn how she made the sleeve.
