Green Scene

I've been the victim of one too many unexpected pinches over the years due to the fact that I typically forget St. Patrick's Day. Not this year! I refuse to suffer at the hands of those who have the good sense to remember the leprechaun-loving day just so they can wreak havoc upon those who have more important things on their mind. Thus, my selections for staying safe on St. Patrick's Day.

I typically opt for metallic-colored headbands when I make my selections for hair-adornments; but this Mini Crystal Centered Flower Headband from bebe is calling out to me. The color is reminiscent of fresh grown grass, and the little flower looks so much like a four-leaf clover that I can't help but think of finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow simply by wearing this lovely piece of hair perfection.

Shift dresses are, perhaps, the most adorable addition to the dress family. One, they are extremely versatile, looking perfect paired with tights, leggings, or bare legs; two, they possess such an effortless, playful look to their structure; and three, they seem to look good on every body type. So you can imagine my pleasure at spotting this Geren Ford Kelly Green Silk Rivet Detail Mini Dress. The color is breathtaking. The material is a dream. And the cut is spectacular. I'll take two please!

Big handbags are my favorite. I like knowing that I can toss anything from books to barrettes, and iPod's to eyeliner into their fashionable depths. But even I was enthralled at the discovery of this Roberto Cavalli Serpent Bracelet Clutch. The emerald color is to-die-for; but the thing that truly speaks to me is the fact that the typical cloth-created wristlet is replaced by a gold serpent-inspired cuff that doubles as an oh-so-chic bracelet.

Flouncy skirts make the heart grow fonder; and this kelly green Thick-Knit Jersey Skirt from American Apparel is no exception. The raw edges and elastic waistband make it a perfectly adorable and trendy way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon paired with a beat-up sweatshirt, or paint the town red by pairing it with a rhinestone-encrusted tank fit for a queen. And the best part? At just $19 each, it doesn't break the bank.

Skinny jeans are like a way of life. Without them, I don't know how anyone could survive. While I typically rock dark wash denim skinnies, I can't help but love these Kelly Green Super Skinny T-Jeans from Tripp NYC. The color is mind-blowingly spectacular, and would look amazing dressed up or dressed down with just about anything in your closet. All I can say is...gimme, gimme, gimme!

Fashionably yours!

Thanks to bebe, Bluefly, Net-A-Porter, American Apparel, and Tripp NYC for the pictures.
