Struttin' Like a Peacock!

I'm still so obsessed with this dress.  I was actually sitting here thinking,... can I make that?  How hard would it be to copy?  Really, I don't even have time to think about copying a Alexander McQueen masterpiece.  ..... Sometimes I have these Martha Stewart fantasies, where I believe that I can whip up a dress, put up a set of shelves and arrange a perfect bouquet of flowers for every room, all in one afternoon.   

 Ahhh.... Mr. Big! (wink)
