Green makes me happy

I avoid this blog like the plague. 

Short posts. I have been advised to stick to short, FREQUENT posts.

Let’s see if that works any better.

Look! Green! Green makes me happy! 

I have been looking into dresses for an upcoming social event this summer. Honestly, green is in. 

Very MOD look. I like the cut of the top. If the dress were shorter I would probably wear it like a tunic, paired with leggings. 

I know this dress is kind of a hit-or-miss, but I like this pixie-look. I like the double-sheer layer on top. I think a pair of moto boots would really urbanize the look. 

I'm not usually a huge fan of strapless, but I just love this dress, I really do. Green, lace print over black. Simple black ribbon around the waist that doesn't clash with the print. I am already daydreaming about the perfect pair of heels to go with this.

Unfortunately, all of these dresses range between Stella McCartney and Dolce and Gabbana so I don't think I will be affording any of these dresses soon.

However, not all hope is lost. Thanks to more more small-named designers with online shops, I was able to find equally nice dresses at a far more reasonable price. 

Luckily, they all range under $50 which makes me (and my wallet very happy). Although I suppose I could make my wallet REALLY happy and just stick to the wardrobe I have, but what's the fun in that? The cheapest, "green" look I could go for is this...

And that look comes naturally! Although I would look much happier being that green.
