i’ve always loved jade, and have secretly wished it would reappear in fashion. while you can find jade in virtually every color under the sun, i’m especially partial to the classic milky green hue. it’s so striking, beautiful and unexpected. at long last, it’s back in a big way, and i can hardly wait to take full advantage!
it all started with chanel’s new jade nail colors for spring, which were all the rage during fashion week…
…which i was reminded of today when i spotted these amazing stephen webster jade earrings in an “what would she wear” post over at whowhatwear this morning. at $510, they’re not coming home with me any time soon, but i love the classic jade juxtaposed with that gorgeous deco-meets-punk setting.
turned out, i also loved WWW’s budget pick from janna conner (in fact, i have the identical earrings in rose quartz, but now i’m wishing i could trade!):
and now i’m just hunting down all things jade…like this scarf (marked down to $49 at virginia johnson)….
…and these beautiful personalized jade note cards from iomoi…
…it’s a slippery slope, you see. but i’m definitely looking forward to adding a little more jade to my life. how about you?
