City Bird

Sunday, October 9, 2011

A few years ago I became pretty obsessed with peacock feathers. I think the male tail feathers are the prettiest among all the avian species. I've contemplated getting a peacock feather tattoo (still haven't ruled it out), and I used peacock feathers in the theme of my wedding.  Needless to say, when I saw this dress I had to have it. I bought this dress in the Summer of 2010 and I've put quite a few miles on it already.  This outfit cost under $36.00!!
