I've never been one to wear green. Except when I was a little girl. Because I was born on St. Patrick’s Day, I would often wear a green dress on my birthday (my favorite aunt Millie would buy me a pretty green something on some of those early birthdays).
So, then, back in the eighties, I had my colors done (remember "Color Me Beautiful?") which confirmed that I really don’t look good in green.
But I love green. My house is full of green. My gardens are alive with green of every shade imaginable. How could such a vibrant and alive color make me look washed out and dead?
That being said, I never give much thought to wearing green on places of my body that don’t come in contact with my face. Like, a bag, pants, shoes, a skirt?
Here is my inspiration for the season…It's all about the Michael Kors. To be honest with you , I am FREAKING OUT over this collection. Take a few minutes to watch the Spring 2013 Runway Show. I don't know why...maybe it's the boldness, the simplicity, the fresh new take on some classic shapes and patterns. Oh my gosh, I am crazy about it. There are rugby stripes.
What???? Stop the show! Green rugby stripes? Well then.
And so, here is what I'm working on. Right now. And I AM SO excited.
This is going to be such a cool fun skirt. I can't wait to finish it this weekend!
And, let’s not forget that we can commit to do green in 2013 by adding more of it to our diets:
