The combination of the hat, gloves and glasses gives this the effect of a stern mistress, I think. (This is one of my fave dresses...you'll see two more of them soon.)
The zebra-print dress is from Target's Merino line in January 2010 (hard to believe I bought it more than five years ago!); the shoes are Dollhouse "Harlot" croc-print pumps, from Shoe Dept., also January 2010. Other accessories are the wide black hat, glasses, red jewelry, black belt, black gloves, and patterned tights.
Caption for the second portrait: "Did you just contradict me, young lady?"
