Wow @ those green boots. I used to think I "couldn't" wear green and now it's one of my favorite colors to wear.

La Belette Rouge said...

I saw Cindy McCain this a.m. in green. I wonder if she saw your fantastic green post before she got dressed this a.m. Carrie, you have the most thorough and beautifully done trend reports of any blog I have seen.

Hanne said...

So many beautiful things! I love the Smythe funnel neck jacket. I don't think I have any green items in my wardrobe, maybe it's about time...
Have a nice day cutie:)

Well. what can I say? I just LOVE green... my mum still remembers taking me to buy shoes when I was about 5 and me throwing a tantrum because I wanted green shoes or nothing and there wasn't any then... Did I say I loved the post?!?

The Seeker said...

LOL You know that I was preparing a post about green in F/W as an option to black or red? And I was thinking in name it "hope or envy?".... LOL
So I think that now it's not worth do it, because we've done such a great work. Well I can say that great minds think alike ;) :D

Yes, I think green will be a very nice colour to combine.

And the layout is being very very pretty. I like it.
Hummm...just feel a bit sad because I'm not worth to be linked.....

I love green, I think it's my favourite colour because it looks so fresh and fun. I love all the dresses here and I really like that Lacoste look too!

Fashion_Girl22 said...

Getting ready for an early St. Patricks Day? I'm starting to like green actually. I never noticed that Dsquared dress on the runway, so great post! There's certainly alot of green in the SS 09 collections. It's more of a demure green though (except for Lacoste).

Thanks for the great comment! It really means alot coming from you. :]

beccajanie said...

PAM said...

the first dress is really amazing! :) and maybe i shud start off with some green bag since its not actually my color :)

The Storialist said...

That purple/green circle print dress is SO cute!!

Eelie said...

Oh i adore green! Just not on me lol. Seriously it just isn't a great look but i wish wish wish on a shooting planet that i could. Its such a raw and beautiful colour! Exiting for those who can pull it off!

Ida said...

A whole new AND fabulous look, CC, wow, I am in awe. As always, impeccably executed article by you, love it! Green is classics.

S said...

Such a terrible colour on me, but I LOVE these images and you are tempting me to give it another try!
P.S. Thank you for the amazing compliments CC, you are an absolute doll and it is reciprocated: I love your blog very, very much and find daily inspiration from it!

wyattb said...

I swear, green really does go well with just about ANY skintone...it's the truth. Even people who have already olive skintones look great in green. I think it must be just the earthy nature of green...it really works on almost everybody.

natàlia said...

I would take it all; I love green clothes!!
