Lime-icious!

Time for a lime-icious day!

Uma Thurman in Vera Wang fashions, 2013

I love this photo of Uma Thurman -
such a fun red carpet moment!

I think these accessories would be perfect
for her light-hearted mood:


both pieces can be found at www.melissawoods.etsy.com

and drink it all up...."

I think these should be peeking out every so often:

These pretty lime swarovski crystal and pearl earrings 
are just the right accent:

Michelle Yeoh at the 67th Venice Film Festival


Certain shades of lime go perfectly with a bronze-y brown.

These shoes are a perfect example:

Wouldn't Ms. Yeoh look lovely in them?

I also like the texture and shimmer 
of this vintage beaded purse:

I love these sparkles!

Zooey Daschanel at the Golden Globes Awards

I wouldn't want to distract 
from those wonderful lime sparkles,

so how about a pair of sequin lime green peep toes 
to peek out every so often?

I would remove the necklace -
I just don't think it flatters with this particular dress.

What do you think of these earrings instead?

Samantha Harris at the 61st Emmy Awards

Ms. Harris is already wearing the most beautiful accessory anyone can have - 
a smile!

She also really needs these handpainted shoes:

"And as the seasons come and go,
here's something you might like to know.
There are fairies everywhere:
under bushes,
in the air,
playing games just like you play,
singing through their busy day.
So
listen, touch, and look around -
in the air and on the ground.
And if  you watch
all nature's things,
you might just see
a fairy's wing."
