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.

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I am half Irish and I think if I owned that lovely Proenza Schouler PS1 in that gorgeous shade of green, ALL of me would break out in a jig! I think I might NEED that bag! sigh! :)

    A Goyard St. Louis in green is just gorgeous. I love that shade of green that they have.

    Love the retro feel on those sandles.

    Happy St. Patty Day. I love all the shades of green. Such a great color!

  • PhotoGirl

    Happy St. Paddy’s!

    Half Irish/half black. “Pale” is relative. One side of my family thinks that I am; the other side, not so much. :)

    In any case, green looks terrible on me, so I have to make do with green accessories. Love that stingray cuff. The PS satchel is tempting, but I can’t carry anything that green even remotely close to my not a supermodel backside! :)

    Happy St. Pat’s Day!

    I love that stingray cuff, but there aren’t too many greens that actually look good on this Irish skin. Teal (or greens with blue undertones) look the best. Like my goregous glossy Teal RM mini-B!

    I am loving that Proenza Schouler PS1 bag from afar. It might be a bit too green close up !

    Always surprised to see no Irish luxury brands featured on Purseblog for their St Patrick’s day offering. Chesneau in Ireland make beautiful bags including amazing green ones in kalahari and ostrich.

  • Eithne O’Toole

    Absolutely agree with Janet; I have always worn Chesneau bags at Cheltenham, and never failed to have admiring comments and compliments about them!

    Depending how it’s done, green can be exquisite (emeralds) or cheesy (lime green patent, arg!). At first glance, I thought the stingray cuff closeup shot was a Chanel caviar finish until I saw the cuff by itself. Nice subdued shade. Would make a nice hairband color.
