Friday´s Fancies #39: St. Patty´s Day


I don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and I don't know anyone who does, so there's no risk of being pinched. However, green is one of my favorite colors, and I don't need any special occasions to wear it. Lately, I've found myself dreaming about monochromatic outfit: I simply love the idea of pairing various shades of one color. I know the mismatched looks are the latest word in fashion, but there's something really glamorous and polished about a monochromatic look that's really appealing to me. That's why I had so much fun putting together this green ensemble and I would simply love to wear this outfit on a date night or even to a job interview.
What about you? Is the monochromatic look a yay or a nay for you?

1. Diane von Furstenberg Shizuka Ruffled Silk Dress, $445.00
2. Ralph Lauren Collection Jesalin Canvas Sandals, $695.00
3. Mulberry Bayswater Textured Leather Bag, $1398.00

    On another note... do you think the Anonymous Nasty Comment Writer is linked to a virus or some other BS? Check out the freaking awesome comment left on my blog today!... I'm just so bummed that they left the comment as Anonymous, and didn't leave me a contact number so we could get together for coffee, and the person could teach me a thing or two!...
