Try Dye


Maybe I should have worn this during Neon Week. In fact, I'm not really sure how this didn't make it into the rotation! Pretty much every color worn during neon week is in this dress - all mixed together. But here's proof positive about how neon can work year round: I wore this dress with black tights and pumps for New Year's Eve...and today I wore this outfit to work.

 
I got these fantastic wedges at a swap a few months back. For those of you who haven't attended a clothing swap, you simply must check it out! You clean out your closet, removing items that are in good shape, but that you don't wear for one reason or another. Then you drop off your bag at the swap, and hang out and enjoy some snacks while volunteers put out all the clothes. Finally, the bell rings, and everyone scurries to the floor and snatches up a whole windfall of fashion finds!


If you live in the Boston area, there is a swap coming up this Saturday! Jessica Quirk of What I Wore will be on hand to sign her new book (I'm sort of a fan girl - she's the one who inspired me to blog!). If you don't live near the Hub, check out Swap-dot-com for swapping events near you!
