Yesterday on Greedy Girl, Caroline reminded me of the shop Bona Drag.  It had escaped from my radar, and I was pleased to visit it’s spirited collection of fashions.  Adoring these cut aways.

Oh, and did you know the term “Bona Drag” means “nice outfit” in Polari?
What’s Polari you ask?
It was a secrect language used by the gay culture in London in the 1960’s.
Don’t ever say you never learned anything on LLL.  And here are a few pretties for all my fellow asymmetrical lovers out there.
So, who knows Polari?!  Show me what you got!
