    Which is my favorite between dinosaurs, bicycles and a retro circus print?
    I’m sorry, I don’t believe that’s possible.

    Got my eye on the stamp collection dress and the circus themed frock. I love a great novelty print. More please.

        Yep. I saw that they added it in in plus sizes. I bought it and I’m wearing it to work tomorrow! (It’s not waiting for the class reunion in August!)
