Stunning color combination...what a spectacular spring green,  great fit & flare shape, & dramatic sleeves were the things I was smitten with in this frock. However, I felt the fabric was incredibly thick & was too big, as well as boxy, on top...the bottom fit well. I wore this dress to the film fest for part of day 3 & on day 4. 
The only time we had to take photos between movies was at the sun was directly overhead...which makes for lots of unflattering it was windy...but it's what we had to work with.
Green was my favorite color for a long time, so I've got an extraordinary amount of green jewelry that I rarely get to wear anymore, so it was nice to break out this gorgeous vintage necklace.
My make-up with this outfit included...Abyss eyeliner by Urban Decay; Deep Blue eyeliner from NYX; UD eyeshadow in Dragon, Freeze, & Bobby Dazzle; Bite Beauty lipstick in Spiced Plum; & China Glaze nail polish in Blue Sparrow. 
The no seat holding rule was new this year...& I don't like change. I see a lot of movies & when I'm fortunate enough to see two back to back in the same was nice to leave a coat behind to save seats for the next show. I saw three new trailers...& my favorite movie was Hal, a documentary about Hal Ashby...the director of Harold & Maude, Being There, & other 70s classics. 


  1. I don't think it looks boxy - but it's also about how you feel in something. I love the blue & green, and I love the blue polish. China Glaze sometimes hits it way out of the park.

    1. Thanks! I find dresses are often too big on top for me because I'm pear shaped & clothing makers expect me to have much bigger boobs than I do.
