Mode Plus: Minty Me

Every season we are introduced to new color trends and patterns. At Chanel’s SS12 runway show we saw hints of mint combined with pastels. Traditionally the color green is associated with peace, harmony, support or comfort. That is why you see variations of green in home decor, hospitals and nurseries.  Green is fresh, calm and soothing, all at the same time.

For me, the color mint reminds me of something sweet, like Ben & Jerry’s Pistachio. That creamy soothing ice cream with the perfect amount of lightly roasted pistachio nuts.

I wouldn’t be a true Emotionista (doing fashion with your heart) if I didn’t transport this feeling into my closet. When I discovered this thrift jewel – yes a jewel ladies, you can’t beat a €7 retro mint green dress – I took her home right away. I created a day and night look.
