Green and Rust

I really wanted the burgundy version of this dress but it was sold out in my size so I settled for the green. The color is much greener than shown (see last picture, different lighting). I love the elbow sleeves. Elbow sleeves as opposed to long sleeves give a slimming effect.  The pockets add fullness to bottom part of the dress which is fine by me. I always want the illusion of fuller hips to balance out my heavy top; and the pleated detail conceals my big mid section. I hope you enjoyed my analysis.
