Emerald ~ VFG Fashion Parade for week of March 11th

Emerald

Pantone recently announced their color of the year for 2013: Emerald! It is, according to Pantone, “Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”

The name derives from the typical appearance of the gemstone emerald and is a deep, rich green with a faint blue cast. According to National Geographic, “green may be the most common color found in nature—it’s everywhere from leaves, grass, and moss to snakes, butterflies, and even the northern lights. Green represents life, vitality, nature, and, of course, environmentalism.” (Of course, vintage is “green” by nature!)

This week we show vintage clothing and accessories in the most radiant of greens, emerald.
