Green... I Do Not Envy You

Painting by Tamara de Lempicka

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  So, I looked in my closet and surprise, surprise... I don't own anything GREEN.  Well, does army green count?  As I've mentioned before, I've got mainly a sea of black, grey, camel and of course, white for spring/summer.

admit it... he's cute!

I happen to love the color "chartreuse" yet I can't envision wearing it because I think I would look like a giant Iguana.  A little trivia about me -- I actually had a pet Iguana that I named Chartreuse when I was in college.  I know... bizarre.  Eventually, I moved on to softer and cuddlier animals.  But, I digress...

my silk charmeuse dress on Sylvia Williams

I figured since I have nothing green to wear and share today, I would post one of my pieces that I designed instead.  Sylvia Williams was so kind as to model this silk charmeuse, cowl back dress inspired by one of my favorite Tamara de Lempicka paintings.  I love this dress although, we hated each other while I was making it... silk charmeuse can be such a bitch to sew!

  1. Beautiful both coming and going. Green is my favorite. Happy St. Patrick's Day.

  2. Wow - that dress is fantastic! Have you ever made it in other (easier) fabrics? Would it work in a less "soft" fabric?

  3. i love a dress that looks good when you enter AND leave a room...that is absolutely beautiful! and of of my favorite colors... green does count =)

  4. I used to think I couldn't possibly wear green. Now I have tons of it!

  5. I used to think I couldn't wear green either! But then again, anything Stacy dresses me in looks fabulous :)
