Green with Envy

I’m sure you have heard by now that Pantone chose Emerald as the color of the year for 2013.

This makes me smile.

I wrote a couple of months ago that I was obsessed with emerald.

Sooooo, in the spirit of the holidays and the New Year approaching!

Here’s to Emerald-

Lovely, lively, energizing, regal, radiant, renewing emerald.

On the top of my list to buy for the New Year-

Something Emerald.

Emerald Sequins and Ruffles – What a way to spend Christmas Eve or to Ring in the New Year!




I have always loved Kiera Knightley’s dress in Atonement- stunning.

(Also one of my absolute favorite movies)



How about Emerald for your home?



I have been wanting to repaint my front doors.

If you recall I wrote an entire blog about painted doors.

This might be the color….

I was threatening to do pink, I think my boys will like the green better.

Too bad my doors are not this dreamy.


And if you are extra lucky…or extra good this year!


Happy Holidays to all, thank you for all of your love and support this year.

I am looking forward to 2013 and what’s in store for Fashionable CHICKs.


I hope you all hug your children a little tighter, tell those close to you how much you love them, take time to listen, take time to visit, take time to realize how precious life is. I truly can not imagine the loss of a child.
