Peacocks are one of my favorite animals. Every time I go to the zoo, I'm taken aback by how sightly they are compared to the rest of the animals. Before I get to gushing about this Fabworthy Elizabeth and James Tulip Dress ($495), I have to ask: Did you know that male peacocks are more beautiful than their female counterparts? It's the males who have iridescent blue-green plumage, while the females have dull green, brown, and grey feathers. Sad.
On a happier note, the fact that this dress, which we recently gave away, has a peacock-feather print makes it extra special. I love the uneven hemline, but what I appreciate most is the contrast between the black elastic bodice and the delicate silk-chiffon bottom. Ravishing.
