always going green + permission to go shopping like...NOW!!

 dress: belk / tights: c/o We Love Colors / bag + necklace: c/o Le Mode Accessories / Hanaki booties: c/o Blowfish Shoes 
nails: OPI and Sally Hansen / rings: (l to r) gift from a friend, Charming Charlies, and from my fiance

i have always been obsessed with the color green. mom associates everything green with me. friends have nicknamed me Green Ilene. my bedroom is painted in lime green paint. visiting the emerald city would be a dream come true. watching (ahem 4x) the musical Wicked was closest to the dream coming true. i don't think Elphaba's greenness was a bad thing. i have a love affair with anything green apple flavor. my ghetto phone is green. i always go for the green toothbrush at the grocery store. okay, you get the picture.

and you're probably not even reading this post with a hint of interest in my green obsession. go ahead nod your head in agreement. i know, i know. your eye was caught with the whole permission to go shopping...like NOW, right?! 

so did you notice the lovely handbag and colorblock necklace? both of those lovelies are a part of a HUGE birthday party celebration going on all week on Le Mode Accessories! they are celebrating Le Mode's one-year birthday! it's such a celebration that selected fashion bloggers were asked to pick out their favorite Le Mode items, which were then grouped together into exclusive flash sales.

how does it work? all flash sales will be up for only 48 hours and all prices on my fave products have been slashed to super awesome - so be sure to make your purchases ASAP! and you won't be able to find these items anywhere else at these prices on the Le Mode site, except through Much Love, illy.

and guess what?!

for Much Love, illy readers, Le Mode has offered an extra 10% discount off of your entire purchase. 
use coupon code: 1YEAR at checkout. um, how can you not celebrate at this party?! be sure to be on the lookout for more flash sales coming to another blog near you!
