She's wanted to re-dress Aggie since they became friends. Since before they became friends probably. Now she has both a job with a staff discount (which provides a convenient excuse in addition to the financial benefit) and she has the freedom to suggest it due to their slightly upgraded status and due to her no longer trying to keep her interest a secret.
So, it's not so much a "all of the sudden" as a "finally".
Also, according to her, she doesn't so much want to redress, but rather umm expand upon Aggie's own style. Whether or not she can do it (or even actually plans to) without trying to Penny-ize Aggie remains to be seen.
Hmmm. I'm not 100% clear on what Penny was trying to say in the first panel with Aggie constantly interrupting. Was it her agreeing to help and support her with the video but thinks Aggie should do something more constructive with her time?
I could see the first bit of innuendo being a little bit of revenge for Aggie not letting her finish. The second was probably just because she found Aggie's reaction to the first just so adorable.

For something she'd been unconsciously dealing with for most of the strip, then pushing to the surface-- I know she's teasing Aggie here too, and she's always been self confident-- but this seems like something that would be terrifying along with exhilarating.
Could be a bit of overcompensation.
