It's always nice to see something, well, olive green and irresistible. In real life this dress is in fact olive, and possesses the mandarin-ish collar I like. It's hella baggy, though not as baggy as this one:
...making it suitable for my "get a sack of a dress, doll it up with a fancy belt" concept.
I tried out the J.Crew triad here:
...where you combine white and ivory with a warmish-neutral shade (here again olive green) to draw the two non-matching shades of white together, so it doesn't look as if you got dressed in the dark, or own only one top and one cardigan, which don't happen to match.
Only I didn't do it with olive, but with a chocolate brown skirt. I love this skirt, because it's not only deep brown, but has a distinct cast of plum.
Okay! Now I have to finally confess, this has become a wardrobe/fashion blog. I've gone ahead and linked to some other wardrobe blogs I like, along with a lone makeup blog, jojoba's My Makeup Reviews.
