The Lust List: Green Dresses

Alas, I am aware that this post comes a day (or week, depending on whether you were planning on ordering a dress offline) late for those of us that were pinched yesterday. Following my 8-a.m. pre-coffee pinch, I took to wondering if I did, in fact, own any green clothing. Answer: no, I dont. (And, no, I have nothing against green). Tonight, the problem persists, as I am off to The Capital Club ‘s  annual Shamrock Soiree at Russia House (my favorite martini spot). Really, though? I was having a hard-enough time with the Irish theme, and now, Russo-Irish? Hm.

In preparation for next year (and in typical type-A form), I’ve set off in search of the cutest green dresses for a night out filled with green beer and drunk people touting their Irish heritage. First, there’s this Alice and Olivia Wrapped Goddess Dress (Available for $264 at www.shopbop.com) that embodies two key spring runway trends: draping and military.

It calls to mind Burberry Prorsum’s Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear Runway show— and I happen to lust after every piece. That chiffon reef knot skirt was featured in spring (February or March) fashion spreads of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour. So, clearly, I wasn’t the only one who loved that show. The Emma Watson (aka Hermoine) Burberry ads seem to be everywhere– taunting me with the gorgeous ruched skirts and poofy-shouldered trenches I cannot afford. Anywho, I digress. Back to green.

Over at Bloomies, another one of my favorite designers, Milly, offers the Palm-Print Silk-Linen Strapless Dress for $320. Sweetheart neckline and side pockets are two details that make my love for any dress sky rocket.

T-Bags, a regular go-to for the hippie set and those-who-love-funky-prints, has this little cotton number that can be worn day or night (Shopbop, $185).

Last, but not least, there’s the Cooling Magma Dress  for $258 at Anthropologie, highlighting yet another spring trend: abstract floral prints.

Happy Shopping!
