THIS GIRL'S Thursday Threads: St. Patrick's Day

How to Rock St. Paddy's Day Without Looking Like a LeprechaunBy Sara Neal Candito

St. Patrick's Day is a love it or hate it holiday. I find myself a little torn. I love a festive celebration as much as the next girl (especially if I get to buy an outfit for the occasion!), but I don't relish being surrounded by a bunch of frat boys gone wild, spilling green beer on my new spring booties. For those of you brave enough to go out this weekend amid the drunken sea of bad shamrock inspired fashion (e.g. "Kiss me I'm Irish" shirts & green feather boas), I've got some great ideas to keep pinches at bay from the Guinness swigging crew. Fortunately, the colors mint, emerald, neon & kelly green are all hot this spring, so your outfit will be wearable well past Sunday. The pieces below will make everyone green with envy by how chic you make this crazy holiday look.
