Sometimes it’s just the hat.

Okay, you can’t tell me that the illustrator of this dress didn’t have a side bet with her officemate as to whether or not she’d get this hat (on the left) past management. looks like she won. And check out the woman NOT wearing the space alien hat. She is obviously (judging from her silver […]
