INDIE REWIND: How to Wear Green on St. Patrick’s Day (without Looking Like a D-Bag)

St. Patty’s Day is tomorrow which means three things: 1.) Dave & Buster’s is going to have their busiest day of the year 2.) My own all-day drunkeness will be masked if not completely eclipsed by everyone else’s and 3.) There will be a sea of green flooding the streets…followed by a sea of vomit.

Let’s say 5…and discuss.

Elizabeth Olsen Digs Green at Sundance

Elizabeth Olsen attended the premiere of her film Martha Marcy May Marlene during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah looking beautiful and hip in a jade green sweater, the it color of the moment. I think her casual and cozy look is perfect for the occasion. You can tell she is radiant from the inside out, as her performance in the film has been getting much acclaim and attention.
