La Fée Verte Strikes Again

Boy have things been busy around here lately! For some reason I thought it would be a great idea to take three classes this summer (which means ten weeks of schoolwork crammed into five), despite my knowledge that a) Neill and I would have several houseguests and visitors during that time, b) two of those visitors would be Neill's parents, c) we would be throwing a large wedding-brunch-party for Neill's parents' friends' daughter while they were here, and d) I would be going across the country for yet another work meeting. I guess I just didn't want to be bored...

At least I got to wear my new favorite dress to the brunch-party yesterday:



If you happened to read this post, I'm sure it will be obvious why this is my new favorite dress. And not only is it that perfect shade of bright green, it's vintage, too! I found it at my favorite antique store on a recent trip home to Turlock, tried it on in their small bathroom, and pranced around the space (much to the amusement/horror of the other patrons) for awhile before buying it. I knew right away that I would, but I no way was I going to wait until I got home to prance and twirl.

I *LOVE* it. And I love that you pranced around in the store! I totally wouldn't have waited either. Aren't vintage stores the best?

I highly approve.

Ooh, it's gorgeous, and the second I saw it I remembered your post about Kelly Green from before. I bet that's a lot more affordable than the very expensive floor-length one you were coveting before! It looks great on you. Congrats on a perfect find!

happy twirling and prancing!
it looks fabulous on you, and i like it more than the diane von furstenberg dress, too.

Check out elann.com. They are having a sale and their "Katia Swing" yarn has a gorgeous kelley green color and a free cardigan pattern. I thought of you when I first saw it.

I'm just surprised you didn't wear your smashing green shoes with it! It really looks lovely on you.
