Green Bangs and Double Bright Florals


Opal Butterfly Necklace: New Mexico
Opal Ring: Gift from Hubby
Earrings: Gift from Dad from The Czech Republic
Kimono Top: Refashioned
Black Top: Old, old, old :o)
Skirt: Thrifted
Belt: Local
Blue Leather Flats: DSW (clearance)

So...I colored my bangs Green.  Why?  Well, I'll tell you...I'm testing it out before my sister's wedding.  My dress is light Green and Blue, so we thought Emerald Green bangs might look nice with it.  The wedding will have a fun, funky vintage vibe.  My sister's hair is always a rainbow of beautiful colors.  I'm the Matron of Honor, so I wanted to match the Bride more.  If we decide we don't like it, I will do my usual bright Red.  So far though...we like it! :o)

I refashioned this kimono top from a tunic my Sister-in-Law thrifted for me.  She new I'd LOVE the colors (and I really, really do!) and would make it into something fun if it didn't fit as it was.  Well, it was too tight across the chest, so I got to chopping.  I cut straight up the front, then added trim aaaalllll around.  The trim was a super long thin scarf gifted to me by a friend.  So hmm, this top was quite free. :o)  To wear with my skirt, I tied it in a knot and tucked the long back under.  I have a "before" to show you below, but I didn't take a picture of it worn loose.  Sorry!

I was so excited to discover all the same colors in my top and skirt.  One just has Green as the dominate color, the other Blue.

BTW, I think I'm getting better at the jumping off of things shot. :o)  This one was from higher up and it totally "got" my tummy!

The Before: (I had already started cutting up the front when I remembered to snap a pic)

Let's talk about the jump shot.  I was on the tree.  I said "Hey, these shoes have low heels, I bet I could do a cool jump shot." 1...2...3...That is so not the cool jump shot I had envisioned, more like a dork shot.  But wait...I'm a blogger, I can try again and no one will ever know it wasn't perfection on the first try.  I present you with the slightly less dorky second attempt. :o)  I was game to go for round three, but Hubby wasn't.  Probably had something to do with the gopher hole I stepped off into on jump one.

PS: I was wearing umbrella earrings, but totally forgot to take a close up shot of them!  They really look more like beach balls anyways, so eh, whatever. :o)
