If like myself you were, or still are a fan of ‘The Wizard Of Oz’ great news as you can now channel your inner Dorothy, and create your own Emerald city look. Emerald green is an excellent colour for this season, especially as we get closer to the pre fall time.
You can create the whimsical look that many celebrities manage to accomplish, but a lot cheaper if you invest in second hand pieces. We have many items available second hand that will help you create your Emerald City look.
inspired by this stunning green gown found in the Vogue 2002 archives, you can recreate this romantic pre autumn look with our version of the dress by La Perla. Find below our stunning wide shoulder green dress with ultra delicate beading.
Buy our stunning La Perla dress size 10-12 for only £150 now to start your Emerald City evening look.
To add some shimmer to this evening look you can add a silver clutch and shoes. We also love a clashing purple to add to the deep colour hues. We have a stunning vintage Valentino shoulder evening bag that would be a beautiful addition to this evening outfit. Because the bag is vintage the price is a lot lower than buying new, so instead of a Salvatore Ferraragamo hand held Boxyz bag for £1735 you will only pay £85, but still nail that look.
You can purchase our vintage Valentino evening bag now for only £85.
To complete the outfit or to add just a hint of the Emerald City look you can add a pair of green shoes to an otherwise plain outfit. This will just keep the look subtle if you don’t want to go all out. We have some stunning suede Duo heels in stock which are perfect for this style.
Buy our second hand Duo high heel shoes size 4 for only £55 to add a touch of Emerald to your look.
To complete the whole look you can add some smaller details including a fab pair of costume earrings. Instead of splashing out on the designer Ermanno Scervino earrings for £490 suggested in the Vogue Checklist, you can purchase our gold plated costume earrings for just £8.
Our pre loved costume jewellery only available in store, buy these emerald style earrings for just £8.
Another way to subtlety add a bit of emerald to your look is to use a wallet or purse. We have this stunning long green vintage wallet that can also be used as an evening clutch for only £45.
Buy our pre loved vintage purse/clutch for only £45 only available in store.
To break up the green we mentioned how adding a clashing colour like purple works really well together. We have a fantastic designer Linea Raffaeli wedding outfit available in a deep emerald green but with a subtle dark shade of purple pattern running through the jacket and top. Match with one of the above accessories and you are Emerald City ready.
Buy our preloved Linea Raffaeli luxury silk suit size 16 £265, perfect for a wedding or the races, and embrace the Emerald City style.
Whether you add just a splash of emerald peeping out from under your hem or go full head to toe you can now enjoy this look for a lot less. Enjoy exploring the way to the Emerald City.
