As the Bride-to-Be I want to be looking festive yet stylish. What I have in mind, is a 3/4 sleeve, short, Irish/Emerald green dress. I'm typically a size 4-6. If you could find something around/under $200 you require sainthood status! Much Love & Shamrocks! EB"
Congratulations on your engagement, EB! The party sounds like fun - can we come? (Kidding.) Despite emerald green being the Pantone 2013 Color of the Year, it was a little hard to find dresses that hit all of your requirements (Irish/emerald green, 3/4 sleeve, short, size 4-6, and >$200), but by Jove, I think I might've done it. Hope one of these is your perfect party dress! XOXO Janetor
