Chartreuse Chic
for eco friendly fashionistas

Capture that Portman je ne sais quoi

chartreuse chic

I have a soft spot for the well educated and well informed Ms. Natalie Portman (I'm sure it doesn't hurt that she went to the same high school as my good friend A, who remembers her as being totally down to earth.) Natalie always manages to show up to events looking young, fresh, and not at all overdone. This particular Getty Images photo (via Fashion Week Daily) is a classic example of her totally enviable style sense -- here she is at the premiere of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium in a flashy red-carpet-worthy color, but a completely laid back (and forgiving!) shape. Plus, yum, look how she's showing off those legs!

This dress from Toggery is 70% sustainable bamboo and 30% organic cotton, with all the relaxed style and dramatic color of Natalie's version (which is from the Olsen twins' Elizabeth & James line.) I've actually been eyeing it all week as a contender for "awesome-but-not-trying-too-hard" outfit to wear to a reunion of M's (guess which one!) Now that I've seen how effortlessly chic Natalie looks in the same style, I might be sold. All I need to finish off the look are some flashy vintage gold heels. Perfection!

Toggery Janna Dress $98.
GOOD B/C: Sustainable, Organic.

p.s. Totally forgot to add -- not only is the Toggery frock good for the earth, but it's almost a third of the price of the original!
