  4. Ergh. It's seafoam green covered with seafoam. It looks like something that died at sea and washed up on the tideline.

  5. Bwahaha, Dreamtress, your comments made me laugh out loud in the middle of Starbucks. So ... don't fancy it? It's like the Victorian version of Alexander McQueen's oyster dress, lol.
