Friday Frocks: Going Green

By |March 16th, 2012|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

st patricks dayI’m not typically someone who gets all decked out in green for St. Patrick’s Day.  It seems a bit trite and if you try pinching me because I don’t abide, I may very well punch you.  However, green has been having quite a moment.  So, perhaps it would be a bit easier to find something attractive, not tacky, to sport during the beer fueled festivities.  In order to still look like a lady rather than leprechaun, try these frocks that’ll have you going green whether it be mossy, minty, or military.

Why Did You Wear That: Erin Go Bra

Roberto Cavalli Feather Print Jersey Push Up Bra, $240

As much as I love a good theme party, I despise themed clothing on holidays.  Sorry, I just do.  I especially despise it after the age of twelve.  Needless to say I’m not wearing green today.  Pinch me. I dare you. Anyway, I’m not a complete curmudgeon.  So, in celebration of the Irish (they’re great people afterall: potatoes, Guinness, folklore), there’s a little Irish phrase, “erin go bragh” that essentially translates into “Ireland Forever.”  I’ve gone ahead and translated it into brassieres and done a little erin go bra-ing of my own.  Because if there is one thing I do love, it’s lingerie.  This is about as festive as I’ll get.  Take what you can get, lasses.
