Neons

DSC_6482

I tried to salvage this photo, which came out terribly. As if the shoes aren’t bright enough, the dress is that yellow-green neon shade that is notoriously hard to photograph. I ordered the dress months and months ago and was pissed when I received it and realized it’s completely sheer. It took another couple of months to find something to layer underneath. And still I went all summer without wearing it. Since it was the last weekend of August, I figured I might as well break it out.

I wore it to Bond lounge in the Langham Hotel in Post Office Square. Bond, by the way, is gorgeous, the music is great, and the drinks are stiff. If you’re in Boston, you should visit. I got quite a few compliments on my outfit, albeit from some very drunk folks. I’m debating on wearing this dress during the day. Yay? Nay?

    Love it. Yes the sheerness of the T dresses is difficult. I have a maxi tank dress in that same fabric. All I can do is wear bike shorts and a Wang bra (or body with poppers) underneath. I love the fit so much that I’ve been wearing it constantly even if it does make me the sluttiest of the south end mommies.

    I see you are as attached to your pink platform sandals as I am to mine. Still annoyed I never got a pair of Pelas. Anyway, what are we going to do when it gets cold? Wear them with wooly socks? I am considering it, myself.

    You look like a bright lemon in the best possible way! Summer was made for neons and they look great against your skin tone!

    i say YEA. be risque’. still on the fence about this whole sheer trend. i mean…what’s under my clothes is not necessarily very awesome to look at and no one should know that but ME, dammit. but, if you got compliments at night, AND if you were able to find something to layer it with, i say go for it. there are far more LESS TASTELESS options that i’m sure you’ve had the misfortune to see when it comes to sheer layers, so i think this is a great way to do it.

    oh, and OOOOOOOOOOOH, THE BAAAAAAAAANGS.
