Comments heard upon wearing a dirndl to work on Halloween

I used Halloween as an excuse to wear my dirndl to work today, complete with "ethnographically correct" shoes & socks (which you can't see in the photo).  It was interesting to hear some of the comments:
  • "Are you Anne of Green Gables?"  (My hair is neither red nor long.)
  • "I'm getting a Little House on the Prairie" vibe".  (Dress isn't ankle length.)
  • Coworker 1: "You look like Alice in Wonderland."  Coworker 2:  "No, that's a blue dress." Me: "Only in the Disney version." And coworker 1: "No, it was black-and-white."  (Obviously someone familiar with the wonderful Tenniel illustrations.)
  • "You look absolutely precious!"
  • "You look like Little Bo Peep."
Judge for yourself:
