My favorite character in all of Dame Darcy’s Meatcake comics is Effluvia the gin swilling, fried clam eating siren. Unlike her, I don’t have a fancy ring made out of hexed young sailors, nor do I scoot around in a wheelchair in order not to scrape my fishtail on the ground. I found this dress amidst the crowded Halloween garb at Buffalo Exchange, and I was entranced by the swishy bottom hem and low back. The way it glows in different lights is just spectacular! I’ve had this dress since Friday and I’ve worn it every day since then.
