It was announced back on December 6th by "Pantone" the global authority on colour and provider of professional colour standards for the design industry, that the colour of the year is EMERALD! I am happy as I love this colour and just about every other shade of green. So when I was away and saw this "Betsey Johnson" emerald belt, I knew I had to get it. Oh and the other deciding factor - It was in the clearance section for $10. Now I just need to think up some ways to wear it. Luckily this colour looks great with black, tan and navy.
