Kelly green. Not a color I would wear except as a retro look. But I really love this dress. I requires ironing or I woudl travel with an wear it more often.
But I do love this dress. I think it is so flattering. I suspect it of being a bridesmaid's dress, lucky bridesmaid.

I paired it with a vintage faux gold broach and earring set that has a steampunk feel, and cream accessories.
