May the luck o' the Irish be with you

Wishing all who celebrate it, a happy St. Patrick's Day! Did you remember your green today? I am a big fan of the color green, but only have a few green pieces in my wardrobe and likewise in my makeup collection. Although I do have a handful (OK, maybe two handfuls) of green nail polishes and eye shadows, it's just not a color I reach for that often, and when I do I tend to go for deep, almost-black greens like NARS Zulu. But on a day like today, I thought it more fitting to use a bit of a brighter green (but still not too bright): OPI's Jade is the New Black, from the Hong Kong collection of Spring 2010.

Green jewelry is a quick way to get in the spirit if you don't want to commit to a green outfit or nails. :) 

Gold vermeil earrings with natural stones from Banana Republic (a couple of years old)

Argento Vivo earrings and necklace, Nordstrom ca. 2008

And more green...

My love for ruffles is still going strong -- I like the way they drape on this top, and its shade of soft seafoam green is unexpectedly pretty. A fabric-covered button at the back neckline is a nice extra touch.

A final look at Jade is the New Black:
