Although it looks a bit more teal in theses pics, this top is a true emerald green (worn in appreciation for St. Patricks day), and the belt, has lovely jewel tones woven throughout it.  My mom had two of these, in different colors and I just adore them.  I have scoured them for tags of any sort, but have not been able to find anything, so If anyone has any info on the maker that would be great (Gay Boyer?)  

The Jade Buddha was also my mom's, but oddly the most sentimental item I am wearing is the shirt.  We bought it together last Christmas on our last shopping trip together.  It was getting harder for you to walk, and you were in a wheelchair navigating between shops, but devil be damned, you got up and walked around those stores with me. I'm so angry at the disease you had to fight.  I wish I could have taken it away.  I wanted to protect you as much as you wanted to protect me.  We had an earthquake in California this morning.  The first thing I did was run to the girls rooms-Randy warned that I was not supposed to do that, I was supposed to stay put-but how could !?  I had to make sure they were ok.  You would have done the same. Thank you for helping me become the person I am today.  I'm not perfect, you were not perfect.  But I think perfection is overrated, I prefer being "Perfectly Imperfect"  xoxox
