Love or Loathe: Anyone for Bingo?

Normally, I like fabrics that remind me of wallpapers and upholstery. Damask is my bestie. But this print dress?.. All I can think of is the pillows on the beige couch in a Florida retirement center rec room. (There are, of course, teal lamps everywhere, pale pink carpet, and terrible paintings of beaches on the walls.) It's even from a company called Jack and Ginger, who I imagine to be a couple of snowbirds from Beliot, Wisconsin. He's a retired Hormel inspector and she's still a jack-of-all trades. They miss gardening but their arthritis is too severe so Ginger's son from her first marriage plants while she directs. They like to play bridge and watch Bogart movies (except Sabrina). During their Florida winters, they enjoy visiting aviaries, aerospace museums, and dive diners.

But my wandering mind is neither here nor there (Seriously, call me if you see it). What do you think of this bright print dress? Is it the perfect thing for summer? Would you wear it to a wedding as Nordstrom suggests? Or is just what you've been looking for for Grandma Ginger's birthday?

Loathe...truly.

A beach cover-up on a day where I feel both fat and color blind. The model doesn't look terribly pleased either...

I kinda like it actually :) I don't think I would wear it to a wedding, but probably an outdoor concert or festival during the day.

Aw, I miss Jack and Ginger already.

Otherwise, loathe.
