I’ve been listening the The White Album while I do my housework, some of the most original music of the late 60’s imo. The George Harrison song “Savoy Truffle” got stuck in my head:
“Crème tangerine and Montelimar” is the first line. I used to think it was a drug song, or even a sexy-sex song. But I found this much more pedestrian meaning of the song via Wikipedia:
Anyway, I also mistakenly thought George was singing “Green tangerine . . .” and that inspired me to buy this dress at the Molly Mutt thrift. Doh. But I really like the emerald color and the flowy shape, so there’s that.
The dress is by CAbi, and it’s easy to wash and dry, and style. It’s really huge on me, so I’ve been belting it. I’ve also worn it as a blouse under a full skirt. It’s now officially my Green Tangerine dress, and apologies to George.

Have a sunny day, and stay fabulous,

It is certainly a green delight the dress. You look gorgeous in that color.
Very pretty on you. Loving green right now!
This shade of green is so pretty on you. I have never listened to this album and may have to give it a try.
BTW, I host a weekly link up on Thursday and hope you will join me.
I love green!! Never enough green!
I love it that sometimes a dress is not just a dress! For me, they're often about so much more than cut, fabric, color … and I'm glad when anyone points out that "value added" element of a piece or an outfit of their own.
Looking lovely, m'dear!
That shade of green looks wonderful on you! If I were you I'd be tempted to ditch the belt and wear a huge pendant necklace which finishes at the waist, it would emphasise your gorgeous figure! xxx
So the song really is about chocolate truffles?! How funny. You look lovely in green Patti.
Lovely smile, Patti! I love that yellow belt with the dress to give it some shape and a pop of contrast. And thanks for telling me about that song – I never stopped to think about it, and now I want a truffle. 🙂
Lovely dress Patti. That color looks fabulous on you!
Great color on you, Patti! This shade looks very Florida!!
I love this colour paired with yellow! So fresh : ) Not at all making me think of chocolates….mmmmmmmmmm……chocolates……gotta run! I can hear some chocolate calling my name!
Gorgeous colour; you know, you could always take the dress in at the sides to streamline it a little more, then you won't get so much fabric gathered around the belt. But it looks just fine as is too! You're both feeling and looking groovy, Patti!
I remember Good News chocolates, which shows my age… xxx
I am a fan of all shades of green but I especially love emerald green! Gorgeous, Patti!

Your hair is perfect!
Green is one of those absent colors in my closet 🙂 Very cute dress on you with the pop of yellow color 🙂
