OceanDreams said...

OMG! I love all of these green dresses...I especially like the Cleopatra like one with the braided straps? Who makes that one? Wow, I would LOVE to have that in my closet! Want to hear something funny? Dorky as it may seem, my last name is "Greenman..." I always wondered how it would sound if my last name was Greenwoman. He he.

Juliet said...

I don't think I have even a one green object of clothning.

Oh, one of my favourite colours ever! Makes my eyes really, really green. My favourite green is like that Reem Acra dress (love the dress, too). And those Lanvin sandals.........

Jennifer said...

Beautiful dresses!! I love them all so much I can't even list favorites, without repeating your entire post. Hehe.

Alya said...

Good eye! I love green. So happy to see plenty of it..

That Balmain dress makes me want to cry.. I love it so much.

Alya said...

By the way, I've got a beautiful pair of pearl earrings to give away on my blog. Come check them out :)

La Belette Rouge said...

I need to take a moment to say that the headwear in a few of these photos deserve their own post;-)and seeing Godzilla getting back into modeling is very exciting. Love all the greens!! I feel healthier just looking at the photos.xoxo

that motercycle jacket is divine. sometimes we forget how great a motorcycle jacket looks in other fabrics and colors.

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

Does the green go for men as well this season?

Elizabeth Marie said...

Oh I love this! And OF COURSE my eye goes directly to the Balmain. I wish my wallet could follow right behind! I think green is also a universally flattering color because there are so many options.

CC...thank you for your comment on the anonymous post. You are a beautiful heart, inside and out and thank you for sharing your experience with me!

I hope you are having a fabulous Wednesday! XOXO

Tiana Couture's Addict said...

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Quite herbal organic darling!
Love the YSL puffy sleeves...quite Imelda Marcos fab! ~XO*

WendyB said...

Green is one of the color that, like yellow, I used to think I "couldn't" wear. Now I wear it often!

Wanderlusting said...

I've really started embracing green this year, I get so many compliments when I wear it! Lime green - not so much - but emeralds, seafoam, mint and olive are my new best friends.

I especially love Olive because it works as a neutral - you can literally pair any colour with it!

Laura said...

Nice post! Loving green colour, the best are the bikinis!

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

that green VS bikini is incredible!

Lily G. said...

oooo, these are lovely green pieces. Perfect for summer.

polishedsense said...

Carrie I love your green picks! I myself love green because it just makes a statement by itself. Love how you used herbs for the title...Gorgeous-Genius!

Hanako66 said...

Blair said...

Oh, my favorite color!:) Love that TB bag--divine. xx blair

Amanda said...

I love green.. esp for spring/summer.

lisa said...

I don't know why, but I've always been drawn to a touch of green in accessories--not clothes per se, but I think it looks lovely on a handbag or a shoe.

Erika said...

There is nothing I covet more at the moment than that emerald green Balmain dress. Though the Floral Belted Dress from Alloy is much more in my price range. :)

Kristin said...

I'll take the Balmain please. Now, where to wear it and get the tens of thousands it must cost?

Rebecca said...

yay going green!!!

Dream Sequins said...

The Balmain is growing on me. But also love the elegant simplicity of the YSL and the YSL resort! I might duplicate this look in a bright green top.

Amazing Style said...

my favourite are the high heel green sandals! for me green is the colour of optimism

Tina { Luphia Loves... } said...

wow, so many beautiful shades of green!!

So glad to see green is back!...or in! Apart from being my all time favourite colour I think it really lifts your mood for the wearer and the looker (if you get my drift!).
