The Emerald City

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a nice weekend!  This weekend was great for me-- I had the opportunity to see Savages (amazing!), go to one of my friend's bday parties (where we were LA tourists for the day!- maybe you saw my instagram photo with Robert Pattinson, cough, cough!), and ended the weekend at the beach in Malibu.  I am refreshed and ready for the week :)


I don't know about you guys, but as I was growing up, I was obsessed with the Wizard of Oz.  I would dream of being Dorothy (I thought Judy Garland was so beautiful) and would cry when I saw the flying monkeys.  As an adult, I still enjoy getting to watch old movies and I love things that remind me of Dorothy's ruby red slippers and her adventure to the Emerald City.  So, when I saw this dress, there was just something about it that screamed Oz.  It's not only the color of the dress that reminds me of Oz, but also within the detailed pointelle, where the tiny holes remind me of sparkling emerald diamonds.  Together, it reminds me of the city of Oz.  With this dress, I decided to wear vintage jeweled earrings and blue heels.  What do you guys think of my pairing?






Dress: C/O eShakti

  150. Verde que te quiero verde.
    Verde viento. Verdes ramas.
    El barco sobre la mar
    y el caballo en la montaña.
    Con la sombra en la cintura
    ella sueña en su baranda,
    verde carne, pelo verde,
    con ojos de fría plata.
    Verde que te quiero verde.
    Bajo la luna gitana,
    las cosas la están mirando
    y ella no puede mirarlas.

  155. I adore the Wizard of Oz too! Dorothy is my fashion icon. That dress is gorgeous, such a beautiful shade of green. I definitely want a dress in that color. I also adore the cut out. Your earrings are freakin' amazing too.

    May the force be with you.
