This month’s Everybody, Everywear challenge is yellow. Jackpot! I’ve had a crush on yellow for a few months now. If you had asked me a year ago to put together a yellow outfit, I’d be hard-pressed to do so. Today, I could hardly decide what to choose: my mustard skinny jeans? My buttery boatneck sweater? The lemon yellow handkerchief dress? I even have yellow shoes and a yellow tote.
I chose this dress for a couple of reasons: 1) I really like it 2) I’ve worn it only once. I’m taking the day off of the 30 for 30 challenge today so I can participate in EBEW. Tomorrow, I’ll wear my final outfit. After wearing the same mix of clothing for a month, I’m ready to give other pieces a go. So starting with this one, I’m going to try a month of wearing only the things in my closet that a) I’ve never worn, or b) I’ve worn only once or twice. I got the idea from Carmen when she did a guest post on this blog a few months ago.
Dress: Palu Palu
Earrings: Premier Designs
Shoes: Nine West
I bought this dress from a small Seattle shop that I can no longer find. Boo! They had a lot of cute dresses and an online store too. But the best bargain isn’t a bargain at all if it doesn’t get used. Last time I wore this, I remember being slightly
acutely aware of its body-hugging shape, so I added a 3/4 length blazer. This time, I’m going for it! It will be perfect for the burlesque show I’m going to this weekend. And I’ll be taking this with me to Vegas. It’s similar in style to a Hervé Leger bandage dress, but without the $1200 price tag.
