Jewel tones for cocktails

This lovely eighties (I’m guessing) silk dress was sent to me by Bella Q ages ago! I can’t really remember when or why, but I suspect it was when I was already pregnant, because I remember that it didn’t fit me. But I held onto it and now it does, just about! I love the colour so much! I can never get greens right with this camera, it looks so much richer in real life!

I matched it with blue to go for cocktails. Blue and green should never be seen – meh! Any colour goes with any colour and that’s a fact!

Outfit stats:
* vintage dress – citizen rosebud * bag – gift from a penpal, circa 1995 * necklace – gift * shoes – clarks *

    I completely agree! Any color does go with any other color. And I love that shade of green, and the shape of that dress is pretty fantastic. 🙂

    It looks fantastic on you. I love the colour. ‘Blue and green should never be seen’ is stupid. There are so many different shades of blue and green that they’re bound to go with each other. And even if they don’t, clashing is fine too.
