char-truce.

chartreuse.
it's not really yellow. it's not quite green.
and against my skin it's actually quite gross.
i have an old suit blazer that i've been trying to work back into the rotation, but it just feels and looks...bleh.
i did find this sweater which pulls more toward lime green, but i thought it was a good compromise...
a truce, if you will.

(sweater, gap; leopard blouse, thrifted; denim, american eagle)

  10. You made leopard print and chartreuse look amazing as a color-print combo. Which is very hard to do. I couldn't even do that. The bravery :-)

  22. It is tough to wear that color, I know I look sickly in it. I was told it is one of the better colors to wear on camera though. That shade of green is pretty on you and I love the layering.

  26. L-u-r-v-e. The char-truce, the leopard, the flares, the shoes - DUH, and that necklace (which I also have, so I may be a weee bit biased).

    merci!

  35. I really like the combination of chartreuse with jeans blue & IMO you can really pull it off. Chartreuse can be difficult, though, same goes for lime green - I love polishes in those colors, but they always make my hands look pale, so I try to stay away from them.

  36. Love the animal print under that sweater and those jeans are to die for!!! GUSH!!!

  39. Funny opening line although I don't think it looks gross! You've toned it down with the jeans and took the focus away with the leopard so I think it works! Jcrew did something like this with a model of your complexion and threw some bright red lipstick on and I thought it looked fab.!
