The coordinating brown petticoat is no where as nifty looking. So what if you can't polonaise a roundgown. It's a compromise in design I can SO live with when the alternative is that pretty.
It's going to totally need some huge headwear though. I'm thinking a frilly cap inspired by Sarah & Kendra (those tow have so much to answer for!). I really want a ginormous black Gainsbourgh but I'm not sure I'm feeling up to the challenge of getting it to LA. We'll see.
