I love the Carmen Miranda touch. I want to dress up for her as Halloween, but none of my friends know who she is. How sad.

Wow, I love it!! I've always had a not-so-secret hankering to dress like Miss Miranda, sky-high heels and giant fruit basket included! This is a nice toned-down, but still fabulous, twist on her look :)
