Green is the new black, only better

Green is the hot thing right now, in every possible way.

What inspired me to write this? So, I went to see Atonement while I was in Bruges and I fell in love with, what seems to me, the prettiest dress ever, and I am now developing an obsession with green , even though my infatuation with green dresses started a while ago, first with a
shot of an Nylon intern, and then with this gorgeous dress by Stella McCartney (which led to this ) and now I'm seeing green everywhere.
Onto other green stuff (um ,not that green stuff), I'm mad about the Boston Celtics (if you didn't get it, I'm talking NBA). Getting Kevin Garnett in their team was a damn good choice. They are having a stunning season, standing tall as first in the eastern conference, leading by 33 wins and only 7 losses up to now! ( so you may not know this about me yet, but I'm a basketball freak. This spring I'm going to visit NYC with my family and get to attend 2 basketball games!!! (Heat vs Knicks, and then Nets vs Suns! Talk about amazing).

I'm also developing a crush on super hot Micky Green (Green not being her real family name, but chose it as seen green is her favorite color). The girl is absolutely gorgeous, looking more as if she were of Nordic origins than Aussie. Her voice is deep and low, and her music is so appropriate for a calm afternoon doing DYI's on your bedroom floor. (as seen not everyone seems to know her, check her out : http://www.myspace.com/mickygreenmusic "Oh!" is my favorite)

Last but not least, vote green (yes, I am aware that most of us don't even have the legal age yet -whatever). The best way to save the planet is : use your bike! I was amazed in Flanders ; most people there go everywhere by bike, and they have huuuge parkings for bicycles. And really how chic is it? All round girls in heels and beautiful long coats cycling it up. Not convinced yet? This Sartorialist picture is sure to make you change your mind!(Remember) RedBikew

Green off!

As brunettes seem to look really good with this colour, I am going to give it a try.

BTW, the Atonement dress is stunning.

Wow Keira looks stunning in that dress! I saw Pride&Prejudice yesterday, she looked stunning there as well!

You a basketbal freak? When I was beginning to read that part I thought by myself, is she seriously interested in basketbal!?
Yes, you are. Otherwise you weren't going to NY City! Superrr!

And that chick with the bike is soooo tough! I feel very tough now, using my bike when going to the train station (too bad, not so green..:S)

Merci merci merci pour ton gentil commentaire

ça me fait plaisir de la part d'une blogeuse comme toi.
Ton blog est superbe et tu as du talent : tu es bilingue en plus !

j'essaie juste d'humaniser la mode en montrant des vrais gens et en racontant leurs histoire
mais c'est pas facile avec un slogan comme "la mode c'est pour les moutons, alors qu'avoir du style c'est avoir de la personnalité".
Si seulement tu voyais les journalistes et les blogeuses de mode me mépriser quand elles me croisent...

Vos visites, vos commentaires, vos liens sont mes seuls salaires ! lol

Si tu veux utiliser mes photos n'hésite pas. juste crédites-moi

je serai heureux d'échanger nos liens.
Si tu le veux, ecris mon blog comme ceci : STYLE AND THE CITY - PARIS

et toi, parles-moi de toi !
