Happy St. Patrick’s Day, PurseBloggers! Erin go bragh! Ireland forever!
Ok, I’m not Irish. Not even close. (German, actually. So I am pale, just not Irish.) But St. Patrick’s Day is kind of fun in a silly, green-beer-and-shamrocks sort of way, and so is all of the green that comes with it. In honor of the man who drove all the snakes out of Ireland (Which is a myth, by the way, but whatever. Most people still think Cinco de Mayo is Mexico’s independence day, too), let’s take a look at our favorite green handbag, shoe and accessory on the market right now. Share your favorite green accessories with us in the comments!
Proenza Schouler did a whole group of green handbags from Resort 2011, including the Proenza Schouler PS1 Bag. The shade is bold and verdant without being overwhelming bright, so for people who want to embrace the season’s color trends but still maintain a bohemian, well-worn feeling to their accessories, this version of the PS1 is perfect. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1595.
As if Miu Miu’s Spring 2011 runway shoes weren’t covetable enough, the brand’s non-runway footwear is just as lust-worthy. These Miu Miu Canvas Polka Dot Sandals in particular are a breezy, summery breath of fresh air, and although I’ve already sung their praises openly over at TalkShoes, they’re easily the season’s best green heels and deserve as many mentions as they can get. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $485.
Exotic texture was one of the biggest trends on the Fall 2011 runways, and if you don’t want to break the bank, incorporating small pieces like the Dannijo Loma Stingray Cuff is the best way to do it. This shade of green is olive enough for fall but still bright enough for spring, which means that this fun little accessory that will see year-round use. For the price and size, that’s not a bad deal at all, and Dannijo’s jewelry is always top-notch. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $300.
