A woman with an unusual kind of lifestyle, has gotten a lot of people stunned after she was found out to have worn only one colour for years.
Elizabeth Eaton Rosenthal
Elizabeth Eaton Rosenthal, a.k.a. Elizabeth Sweetheart, is a fine artist in Brooklyn, New York.
The woman has been dressing from head to toe in various shades of green for the last 20 years. To her, green is the happiest, most positive color in the world, so she can’t imagine wearing anything else.
According to The New York Times, ‘The Green Lady of Carroll Gardens’, as Elizabeth is most widely known, has always had a thing for experimenting. At one point in her life she wore only 1930s print dresses, before moving on to single colors, like silver, pink, purple, blue and finally green, which she surprisingly never got bored of. Her passion for green started with some home-mixed green nail polish and a neon lime streak in her hair, but it quickly spread to her clothing and her home, as well.
Today, she always sports green hair, an attire made up of different hues of green, and most of the things she buys, from towels and skin care products to furniture and appliances, are also green.
“I never planned for any of this to happen,”Sweetheart told The New York Times. “It’s not an obsession. It just happened naturally. I’ve always used color, collected color. Maybe it was because I grew up in Nova Scotia, and after moving to New York, I missed having green all around me.”
All she knows is that green makes her happy, helps her deal with daily problems, so she wouldn’t dream of wearing any other color.
“It’s the most positive color in the whole world,” Elizabeth says. “It makes me feel happy. You can wake up really miserable in the morning and then you get dressed and turn green and it’s quite wonderful.” But that’s not her only motivation for wearing green exclusively. The 75-year-old artist also does it because it makes people happy. “It’s for other people,” she told The South Brooklyn Post. ” I like to make people happy. And for the children. I was really not an outgoing person. But I say hello to anyone who talks to me and I love it. The young children love it.”
“It’s just amazing traveling with her,”Elizabeth’s husband Dylan confirms.“People shout from cars, children flock to her on the train and tourists take pictures of her. The most diverse people call to her from across the street, give her thumbs up, call her ‘Miss Green.’”
But finding everything you want to wear in a single color can’t be very easy, especially when you’ve been doing it for 20 years. The Green Lady shops for the staple of her wardrobe – green overalls, of which she has almost 30 pairs – at stores like GapKids, The Children’s Place and Old Navy’s, but even if she doesn’t find what she’s looking for in green, she can always dye it. She ‘cooks’ a pot of green dye every morning, to dye her hair strands and all her garments. Everything she wears, from her underwear and socks to the clothes on her back and the butterfly hair clips has to be green.
Elizabeth’s house is mostly green as well, from the front door to her backyard, and everywhere in between.
Her bed linens, the window curtains, chairs, and even things like pots, pans, pens and hygiene products, they are all green.
“I can’t even sleep unless I’m all in green,”the Green Lady told Patch.com.
Asked if she ever gets tired of green, Elizabeth Sweetheart said “Oh no, never. It keeps getting better every day.”
The Green Lady of Brooklyn is not the only color-obsessed person we’ve featured on Oddity Central. Five years ago, we wrote about Charlotte price, a woman obsessed with the color pink, and in 2014 we featured Sevenraj, an Indian real-estate agent who surrounded himself with red and white.

US actress Evan Rachel Wood, who plays one of the leading characters in the new hit TV series Westworld, has spoken out about being raped twice in an open letter she posted on Twitter.
According to AFP, the 29-year-old revealed that after she was r*ped the second time, she wanted to die. She made the revelation in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine and decided to also share her story on social media as she did not want to "stay silent any longer".
The actress, who plays a woman who gets raped in the HBO drama series, said she had been assaulted by a "significant other" and then by the owner of a bar.
"The first time I was unsure that if it was done by a partner it was still in fact rape, until too late," Wood wrote. "Also who would believe me.
"And the second time, I thought it was my fault and that I should have fought back more, but I was scared."
According to her, the attack took place"many, many years ago" and that she had come to understand that she was not at fault. She said after the attacks, she nearly ended her life at age 22.
Revealing more details, the openly bisexual actress said she failed to open up on the r*pe because she feared many people would think she was seeking attention.
"I don't believe we live in a time where people can stay silent any longer. I certainly can't," she wrote.
Wood said although she was happy in her life, she was "still not ok". Wood plays Dolores, an android in the sci-fi series "Westworld" based on the 1973 movie of the same name about a Western theme park of the future.
In the first episode, her character is shown being dragged off to be raped.
The actress posted a message on Twitter on Tuesday, several hours after sharing her letter, saying that she would be taking a break from social media.
"Thank you for all your support and courageous stories. You are not alone. xo,"she said in her message.
