In looking ahead to the bold fashions of 2012, I’m loving green, which just so happens to be my favorite color. Although I believe there’s a time & place for a pop of green & wouldn’t recommend this dress with any of these shoes at the same time!
I’m absolutely nuts for this fitted, knee-length dress ($34.95) from H&M, available in sizes 4-16. Not only is it date-friendly, but it’s also great to transition from the office to happy hour with girlfriends. You can make it all your own by adding a leather blazer or embellished cardigan. Perhaps accessories like a studded belt, bib necklace, or textured tights will also bring out the bold color of the anytime sheath dress.
Since we’re on the subject of green, I’m dying for these three pairs of green heels, all from Charlotte Russe. Right now you can take advantage of the site-wide sale on shoes: Buy 1, Get 1 for $15.50! The studded platform satin pumps ($40.00) are a fun way to mix things up with your favorite LBD. If you wanna try something more lush & regal, the velvet platform peep toe pump ($35.50) shows off your flirty side. Also, the knotted velvet platform pump ($40.00) is sexy for a single girl’s night out.
Don’t be afraid of green & don’t pay any mind to the Kermit the Frog jokes. For some celebrity inspiration, take a look at Amanda Seyfried in Prabal Gurung @Comic Con in San Diego & Gwyneth Paltrow in a shimmering Elie Saab gown at the Bambi Awards.
