The Luck of the Irish
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day we would like to feature some of our beautiful greens…both in jewels and lingerie. The incredible greens of emeralds and tourmalines are as alluring as diamonds, and the vivid green of silk charmeuse, crepe de chine, and chiffon will no doubt enliven your day. The color green has long been associated with growth, rebirth, and renewal. That seems especially appropriate now that we are headlong into Spring. The blossoms are making gardens look beautiful and smell divine, and the longer days are a welcome treat. I’ve never given much thought to St. Patrick’s Day, other than to remember a particular day in elementary school. I’d been mercilessly pinched all morning, having forgotten to wear anything green. I was called to the school office shortly before lunch, to find that my mother had dropped off two bright green ribbons for me, which changed everything. I quickly tied them around my two long braids, thereby putting an end to the horrible pinching, and saving the day. Now, I think I’ll just wear an emerald or two…or perhaps the emerald green Gaia bralette. Much more fun than ribbons... Inspired by a sore mouth from dental work (oh, the joy…) I decided to make poached eggs for dinner last night. I sautéed zucchini, purple kale, and snap peas from the farmer’s market in ghee, topped them with a couple of poached eggs, and then added my pumpkin seed pesto, chives, and some shaved parmesan. Tender tooth notwithstanding, it was delicious, almost completely green, and perfect for the season.
