color love: fall 2009: chartreuse… a color that pantone missed

Chartreuse. Even the word itself makes me smile. Here’s a color that I declare is this Fall’s “yellow”. Wear it with dark chocolate browns, eggplant purples, and of course, black…

Love this shade of green.

From Christian Dior’s Fall 2009 Couture. This collection knocked me out.

And the Dior lingerie-strap shoes that were worn in various styles and hues throughout the show were unreal… too bad these can’t be had anywhere.

I’ve searched out some finds in this shade. I’ve been doing lots of Etsy lately, so I’m grabbing these finds from Polyvore to mix things up a little!
