Voici a post dedicated to a color so deep and rich it literally makes the world go round. Ever since I was a tot I've faithfully answered green to every "what's your favorite color" question but it was Kiera Knightely in The Atonement that really made me love it's emerald-y hue. How freaking awesome is that dress? And remember those emerald Lorraine Schwartz earrings Angelina Jolie wore to the Oscars in 2009? Or the ones Kyle Richards from RHOBH wore? As you can see they all made quite the impression on me and with the color's recent appearance in many fall runway collections, I decided to make youz an inspiration board of sorts to, you know, get inspired.

Starting on the top left with ze jewels, Kenneth Jay Lane tasseled earrings and some insanely amazing Shourouk ones. They're (both) a perfect addition to your little black dress or all you need to complete your simple jeans and t-shirt look. ALL YOU I NEED. 

Next, what's suede and embellished with Swarovski crystals all over? Das right, it is indeed Matthew Williamson's quirky clutch. It serves pretty much the same function as the aforementioned statement accessories do, or would, except I wouldn't restrict this clutch to solely evening use. It's fair game around the clock, similarly to the beautiful exotics directly below brought to you by Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang. I can't decide which I like best.. croc and lizard embossed or all python errthang? It's tough one, no?

As we move a bit further down, for the bad bitch who likes looking like a bag of money, say no more with Acne's Jinx Currency blazer. I know, I know, I've been listening to too much Rick Ross but I was only (partially) joking sheeeeesh.

Move your eyeballs a little more to the right now and you shall find Linda Farrow for The Row sunglasses that unfortunately look horrible on me but are still really cool, and some Alexander Wang pumps. I love love love these bad boys. The texturized calfskin used is finely ribbed to perfection and absolutely delicious.

Up one more are suede Charlotte Olympia suede booties dubbed Eve for obvious reasons, and last but certainly not least, the fashionites that never cease to please. In the top right corner, Daria Werbowy as seen in Aaron De Mey's latest spread in Paris Vogue, Mira Duma during spring MFW this year, and Poppy Delevingne in Switzerland over the holidays. Diagonally across on the bottom left corner, two of my favorite dresses from Elie Saab's S12 collection. Someone neeeeeds to wear the dress all the way to the left to an awards show... needs to. For me. Anyway, I hope that wasn't too ridiculous to read but class is calling. 
Peace out, dudes.
