Julie (at ) has this adorable snail-print dress up right now. It's only about $75 but it's teeeeeeny. Waist 24.
I love the little snails — how could you not? And I wouldn't even mind the inevitable escargot jokes. (Although my favorite escargot reference is . [warning video link])
Don't the snails look as if they were drawn by Ian Falconer (who does the books)?
And here's a closeup of the snails:
I think this similarity is deeply significant, but I don't know why. Or how. All I know is that if this dress were in my size (PETER PAN COLLAR, people, and POCKETS) I would own it.
This also reminds me that I have some really cute bug-print fabric that I bought to make my son a camp shirt, and since he has shown NO interest in me making him a shirt (or, in fact, me making him anything that isn't various complicated Star Wars costumes) I think the statute of limitations has run out and I can use it for a dress. Right? Right. (Besides, I think I bought six yards, so I probably have enough for both.)
