Love Love Chartreuse..............again

Of all the brights that are being paraded before us this fashion season, this flirty feathery number from Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012 RTW caught my eye. And I fell in love. My love affair with the colour Chartreuse goes way back to this informative background post here even if I do say so myself......... to me it is, always was, and always will always be my favorite colour. As soon as my camera is back up and running, I promise to do some chartreuse gift wrapping as I am inspired. Right now all I can do is think about is how I wish I was 30 years younger so I really could wear those chartreuse socks with that gorgeous pair of ODLR "virtual" booties. And maybe the dress too. 

Two after-post additions.

  1. Dear Sande,
    A pleasure to visit your site.

    Love your blog. Full of sweet ideas.

    God bless,

  2. Oh my, this chartreuse is striking!
    I must say you have had a hand in my love for chartreuse.

    Looking forward to your gift wrapping interpretation of charteuse.


  3. I am sure you can still wear those delicious booties and frock! I love the color too.

  4. I was so excited to see this in my inbox today, as I share your obsession Sande and did a very long piece on the subject. This is a beautiful dress by Oscar de la Renta. What a charming man, what a talent!

    Always love your blog!

  5. oh, yeah. I'm always trying to figure out how to get this color in my house! pillows, art, ANYTHING for a little chartreuse!


  6. A gorgeous colour Sande and such beautiful images...... I also love to drink green Chartreuse too !!!! XXXX

  7. A few years ago lime green was the "new basic" color...I'm pulling the accessories out again. Love those little shoes & socks, just so so's

  8. This is not a color I would wear (even in my younger years!) but it is absolutely so fun to look at! Love the feeling of movement in the clothing too.
    Your blog is great!

  9. Snap! I loved it too. So so pretty.

  10. I love chartreuse too! I have a couple images saved for a future chartreuse post.... saving for a dreary winter day to brighten up my mood!
    Lovely post, as always!

  11. This is one of my favorite colors. It goes with so many colors, gray, black, brown and so on. It makes it fun to dress up a dreary gray with a bright chartreuse! Can't wait to see your gift wrap them so!

  12. Love this color !

    So Line

  13. Sande,

    These are exceptionally beautiful. I will love wear this color also even if it's just socks.


  14. Oh it's so pretty, his whole show was gorgeous!
    Hope your camera recovers!


Your comments are such a lovely addition to my day. Thank you.
