Backward or Forward

Hello Lovelies!  Sorry I went MIA!  Life got a little out of control, and the last thing on my To-Do List was the blog.  I didn’t finish my list.  It was go, go, go, and then I got to enjoy an extended weekend with my girlfriends.  Best time ever!  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a great start to the week!  
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the preview of this outfit with my arm party.  I wore this to a Dwell with Dignity (DwD) event a few weeks ago.  My bangs have been driving me crazy so I’m wearing my hair in what I call a “doggie do”.  It reminds me of a dog hairstyle after visiting the groomers – I’m just missing the small bow!  LOL!

Was it supposed to worn this way??

The dress and white necklace are new-to-me finds from the one of my favorite consignment boutiques, Feminine Fashions.  It was less than $20!  I was so excited about the dress and thought it was perfect for the DwD event!  When I got home, I told the hubby that I got some funny looks.  I started laughing when I looked in the mirror… maybe I wore the dress BACKWARD??  I switched it around and asked Mr. S what he thought.  We both laughed because we couldn’t tell!  Anyhow, I think I wore it correctly to the event.  YOU be the judge!

  1. Love the dress both ways but I can completely see why you’d be confused! I love your hair that way – love the soft waves and the bangs pulled back.

  2. lmfao sam about “doggie do”!!! hahaha you and one of my other blog buddies were contemplating about bangs and i told you two that it was going to get hot and you would push them to the side. but i’ve never seen this. BUT you make it look so fashionably chic!!!! SUPER LOVE your dress! it looks great BOTH ways! Glad you had a great weekend.

  4. I’m loving this dress both ways, it’s such a pretty spring piece! Tucker really knocked it out of the park with their patterns this spring. Love your arm party too :)

  5. You can tell him that wearing dresses backwards is the new trend ;)

    p.s I have a post about how to style bangs when you don’t want to wear them down… that’s one of the downsides of bangs… some days they don’t cooperate!
