LSD and Camille Got the Green Memo

Lauren Santo Domingo in 2012. What a great look!

May I offer you some green, two different ways?

The first features Moda Operandi co-founder Lauren Santo Domingo in a picture from last year. I still love this look, and it reminds me I should look for a green skirt.

The second look is by Claude Monet in his painting Camille. This is how they kicked it 1866-style when a lady wore green, which I have to say I’m quite partial to, I love the stripes, I love it paired with black! Camille, in case you didn’t know, was Monet’s mistress at the time he painted this picture, and later became his wife. I hope for the sake of love and art that he bought her this ensemble!


“I absolutely did not wish to make a portrait but simply a Parisian of the era,” Monet later said of this work. Camille launched both Monet’s career and a new era in painting.

Consider this your friendly reminder that Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget) and I would love to see you wear green for our next installment of “How I Wear My.”

Send a picture to either of us by March 4. All shades of green are welcome!

Camille is on view at the Met as part of the exhibit Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity until May 27, 2013.

Now I want an emerald pencil skirt! She looks fantastic.
And I love Camille's green skirt, too. But maybe not quite as wearable as Lauren's ;)

I'm really looking forward to the next HIWM: Green post. We have a great turnout so far. Lots of different shades of green and stylish women from all over the world!

Very appropriate given that this year's Pantene colour of the year is emerald. Love that striped skirt! I'll will try and rustle some green up for you!

Oooh, I love that painting- the green is so striking in an otherwise quite dark painting! Alas, I have lots of green items but somehow haven't been wearing them in recent times!!!!x

I adore green, all shades, and that LSD style is pretty fabulous. Thanks for hosting the 'green' post. I sent a photo to Adrienne and my green is waay wild. Just found your blog and I'm happy to follow-looks wonderful!
