May 26th - Outfit #24 - Green and Blue Day

Yesterday, I got up early and went to my WW meeting. I thought I'd try wearing this Smoking Lily dress backwards for a change of pace.
I last wore this dress here - and I am going to miss wearing it when June's capsule kicks in. Heck, I'm going to miss wearing it for the rest of the year!

I'm also wearing my Smoking Lily obi:
And of course, my blue suede shoes (last seen here). I love how the blue and green and purple all work together.

The back:
I do like versatility in my clothing!

I wore this out to lunch, walking around town doing errands and going to a birthday dinner for a friend.

Don't forget to check out Patti's Visible Monday!

Dress and obi (Smoking Lily), shoes (Feet First), earrings (local).

  5. Maybe it can be one of your special occasion items that don't have to be in the monthly plan. It's too amazing to be completely packed away!

  6. Whoa, you've outdone yourself with the vivid color in this outfit. You've got me wondering if there is any dress in my wardrobe I could possibly wear backwards.

  7. I looooooooooooooooove everything about this outfit! You really know how to play with colors and make it all work.

    Hey, while you take a break from wearing this dress, I'd be happy to "borrow" it for awhile, LOL!:)

  13. I love a dress with a back cut-out. Beautiful colors, and we get to see your tattoo; a winner all around.

    1. Tamera, good question!

      I'm choosing not to repeat items, at least not right now. One of the goals of doing this year-long challenge is to get more wear out of the things that I own, especially those items that languish in the back of my closet while items that I love (like this dress!) get worn instead.

  17. Your dress is so pretty, I know we've seen it before, but I really do love it on you!!

  18. I love that you can turn that dress backwards! A woman once told me, "I love a dress that speaks to you from the back. You don't need a dress to talk from the front, it's your face that should be the focus." I never really paid attention before, but after her words of wisdom, I realized I do like a dress that can "talk" from the back.

  20. I dunno if I'd have the willpower to keep such an amazing dress out of rotation most of the year. Love the backwards option!
