I’ll admit, when she stands still, this dress is underwhelming.

It’s a cute pattern — I enjoy that it almost looks three-dimensional — but the cut is a little maternity, almost, and the heavy stockings and shoes weigh it down.

But then she walks:

And like the all-star pro she is, suddenly I LOVE it and all I want is to walk through the rain in Paris with her like best friends, eating seasonally inappropriate ice cream cones while we laugh and laugh and laugh as if we are selling perfume to somebody.
