Green Envy



Dress (Gap): Sweater & Necklace (The Limited); Tights (Kohls); Shoes (Nine West);
Sunglasses (JCPenney); Watch (Fossil)


This green dress has been a closet prisoner for a while - it's lower cut than I like and the sleeves are sort of goofy.  And while I love the love the color and length, I honestly only like the bottom half (note to self: I need to quit buying things I only like part of).   So adding a sweater over it and tying the dress' belt over it was the perfect compromise in letting this dress see the sun a bit more :)

I know the feeling! I've bought too many I like this part of something and not the whole thing! The green dress is pretty and I like how you restyled it!

I love the color combo. I am guilty of the same thing. Note to self: stop buying strapless dresses that don't fit.

I'm cracking up. SUCH a good tip. Anyway, I wonder what the top half looks like, but I am loving the deep color of the dress that I can see. I've definitely chopped dresses into skirts before (just an FYI). (:

I love the deep green and pale pink together. Have you thought about cutting it into a skirt maybe? You might find it more versatile that way if you only like the bottom! Also, killer shoes!

Love the way you did this great idea to layer a the top since you didn't like it so much! Your heels compliment the rest of the outfit fabulously :)
