With St. Patty’s Day approaching and everyone talking about getting their green on, today seemed like a perfect day to talk about the 2013 Pantone color of the year – Emerald.

 I love nearly all shades of green – from the palest mint to the darkest hunter.  And emerald is right there at the top of the list.


This detail about green is awesome…


I think my love affair with green probably started the first time I watched Gone With the Wind.
How could you not love green after seeing Scarlett in this dress?
I wanted the dress. I wanted to be Scarlett. Somewhere in the recesses of my head, I think I began associating green with a plucky, strong-willed, determined spirit – just like Scarlett had.
Nearly every room in my home has some hint of green (it not a blatant display). I find the color soothing, calming and inviting.
Here are a few fun “emerald” ideas for fashion and home decor.
I seriously love the coat. As in LOVE the coat.

The word of the week is intervention:




the act or fact of intervening.

I was flipping through a magazine this weekend and one page had photos of celebrities attending a snazzy New York event. The photos showed lots of smiling faces in beautiful cocktail dresses and evening gowns. Except for one.

This one particular celeb looked like she had been attacked by a flock of crazed flamingos. I kid you not. Really, I could not make this up. Her long flowing gown was covered in what looked like pink feathers. Nevermind that the dress was clearly designed for someone much, much smaller. Nevermind that the pink feather trail looked like she was about to be swallowed by a punch-doused Big Bird.  Nevermind that the whole thing was a hideous spectacle.

The thought I couldn’t get out of my head was “Who let her go out on stage dressed like that?” Seriously, there had to be someone there who considered staging an intervention, burying the flamingo frock and finding something much better suited to the celeb and the event. Where was that person?

I know there are times I could use a little intervention.


Like when it comes to chocolate, shoes, party planning, chocolate, shopping in general, chocolate, cleaning and chocolate, I’m pretty sure I could occasionally use an intervention.

And I am begging and pleading with my friends to please intervene if I ever put on something that looks like it has been mauled by a large pink bird. Please don’t let me out the door. Please.

Thanks forever!

The other day I received a catalog in the mail. A glance at the cover convinced me it belonged to someone else and got stuck in my mailbox by mistake. When I looked at the mailing label, though, it confirmed this particular catalog was mailed to me.

The people who sent it have no idea who they sent it to. At all. Completely clueless.

The first thing I noticed was this on the cover.

So what defines a Goddess? And because you are a Goddess these people are going to be nice enough not to charge you extra for being so special. Isn’t that great?

Then I started thumbing through the catalog. Here are some highlights of the things you will never see me wear. Ever. Even on Halloween or for a very dark and disturbed costume contest.

For those nights when you want to be the star of the show.

So you can announce it to the world and people can run before you get to close.

When you really feel the need to cinch it all in.

Specially designed for those rainy days when you feel like wearing skulls and roses to splash through the puddles. That's right, these are rubber boots.

Daisy Mae takes a walk on the dark side.

Butterfly Sunglasses. For the ultra elite Diva who has everything else.

My personal favorite - the Purple Spider Web Shoes. Wouldn't these look great with... Still thinking on that one.
