Can't Leave Well Enough Alone

Hello Friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful week!
Today I'm linking up with Everybody, Everywhere for their fashion
challenge of the month. This month's theme embodies a trend that
is super hot at current; neon.  While I wouldn't categorize myself as 
trendy, I will admittedly jump at any opportunity to play dress up.  I love 
a challenge, I love to have fun, and I enjoy the opportunity to see so many
other talented fashion bloggers interpret trends in their own unique ways.
Working against time constraints, this dress jumped right out at me with
its rainbow palette of neon colors.  The title of this post was supposed to
 be "The Dress Says It All," and I would opt to let the dress do all the work.
But, as you see, I can't leave well enough alone. As much as I wanted to,
I simply could not throw on a pair of nude shoes and call it a day.
For some reason, that just doesn't seem nearly as much fun.
What do you think?

    1. Heather,
      Thank you so much! I had so much fun with this. This sash belonged to my Grandmother, and I have worn it in 50 million ways. I think I'll have to dedicate a post to it! :)
