Emerald City

When it comes to noticing runway trends, I usually leave that to the fashion-speaking bigwigs - people who say things like "deco-beading" and "draped bodices" and "siren-silhouetted gowns". Me, I'm more of the mind that trends emerge from the young artistic class, not the major designers in their gigantic lofts with their gigantic bank accounts.

BUT! I will say this. There was one trend that certainly stood out to me at the shows this year:

Green!! The only shade of green I own is olive/army green. Looks as though I might have to re-evaluate...I LOVE these shades. So maybe the Devil Wears Prada "cerulean speech" had some validity after all. 

Probably not.
