Fabworthy: Elizabeth and James Tulip Dress

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.

this dress has a very awkward length, which totally ruins the dress for me. I think if the dress was a knee length it would look better. The bodice is pretty though...

This dress would be cute if it were shorter. It's too informal to be long and not formal enough to dress up.

I don't know about it actually...the top reminds me of binding. No, I don't think I'd like this tortuous dress.

totally agree rosa, a visit to walmart and in 4 hours tops you would have something almost the damn same.

I'm glad I can sew because I can sure replicate this dress for at least $50. That dress is not worth $495!!

I would love it even more if it were shorter.
