Bracelets and Rings- Vintage from The Carole Tanenbaum Vintage Collection
Pants- Marc Jacob brocade pants from Marc Jacobs store in L.A

The Look: Carole Tanenbaum Collaboration + Green Bugs

Fun Fact: I have a "green problem"!!! Ahhh!!! I have been sooooo into green that I could paint my bedroom walls green!!! (That might be a regrettable one!) So, when I walked in to Carole's studio and saw that big vintage dragonfly I nearly lost it! I had to wear it! And I loved the idea of putting lots of bugs on my green sweater and letting them hang out for the day! I felt like I was wearing a bug bib all day and I was so happy! My grandmother always wears bug pins and she collects them so wearing them is so special to me because it reminds me of her. Also, the gold bracelet with the green gem stone is one of my favourite bracelets I have ever seen! I love how it looks like a precious bow. But seriously, I could talk about Carole's jewelry all day... I love how the green ring looks like its casting a spell on whomever looks at it! In the last picture, a bride and groom strolled by and I screamed out " Congratulations!" and she shouted back, " I love your bug pins!" Haha!! Carole's online shopping website officially launched yesterday! And she has sooo many more amazing jaw dropping (and drooling) pieces! So check it out HERE! Pin It Now!

My god you look a treat girl! Green is my favourite colour too and isn't that shade of sweater just gorgeous? I'm swooning over the whole outfit and think the MJ pants will be so versatile. The pins are a brainwave - I'm just amazed at the whole look. Thanks so much for your lovely comment, glad you liked by Mum's suit and the green flapper dress:) xo

That is one hot bug bib. It actually looks like an ornate necklace.

Looks like you got photobombed in the last shot by a couple getting married!

forget the bugs (okay, don't actually forget the bugs), but those pants are insane! All the shades of green play off each other so well.

I love this soooooo much. The bug pins look great and those Marc Jacobs pants could easily be too much, but they great with that outfit when they've been dressed down. I am obsessed.
