Green is my all time favourite colour to wear. It always brightens up an outfit. My fav from the post is the flowery dress.

Penny said...

Miss Yaya said...

im loving the bathing suit but all the VS photo shoots a re very deceptive

MizzJ said...

Thank you, green is such an under utilized color!! For those with golden skintones like myself, choose a vivid emerald green. I am totally in love with that Balmain dress, the deep emerald color and even the shoulder pads are growing on me - scary!

Diego R. Wyatt said...

I am feeling like it's St. Patrick's Day! Green is an amazing alternative and even an impressive ally to other colors and patterns. Avery, emerald and olive are my favorite shades. The Paul & Joe dress is amazing! I love the simplicity of the silhouette and the complexity of the pattern. I would love to see the Nathan Jenden on, it looks great. I also am digging the Lanvin metallic pointed pumps and Dani Black fringe sandals.

Geri Wu said...

green is one of my favorite colors! i love that it's everywhere... and in such pretty shades too!

I always thought that green wasn't my color- but I do have one green dress that I'll wear this weekend- inspired by your post! So many gorgeous frocks!

The Haute-Shopper said...

If there's one thing I want to get this season, it's something in a vibrant green. The color on the Ossie Clark outit is stunning! Thanks so much for posting all these - they'll definitely help me pick something perfect!

I'm so in love with that Balmain it hurts.

Wanderlusting said...

Too many...green! LOVE IT! I just started buying/wearing green since I realized I didn't have a lot of it for St. Patty's day lol. Emerald is my favourite but I like it all, from seafoam to olive to kelly green. My fav green shade though has to be the one captured by Balmain :)

Great post!

Wanderlusting said...

PS best thing about green is that you can treat it as a neutral!

Alison said...

that nanette lapore dress is fantastic! Love her!

La Belette Rouge said...

Kermit was wrong. It is easy being green in those gorgeous pieces. Perhaps Kermit needs a new stylist.;-)
