OOTD :: of chartreuse’s comeback and backwards dressing

Okay, so maybe I ought to have worn this top right side forward. Because you’ve gotta admit – that blue and those ladies are pretty darned striking.

But I was really charmed by the fact that the color of the back of the top went perfectly with the color of my flouncy skater skirt. Worn this way, doesn’t it look as if they were made for each other?

Also, I’m really just enjoying the comeback of neon yellow/chartreuse; I read once that it was a Gemini’s signature color, and as the quintessential Gemini, I feel honor-bound to stay true to my astrological sign.

Other than that, I’ve really not got much more to say about this outfit except that, with this penultimate ensemble, I am truly rediscovering my appreciation for Custo tops. In my rush to acquire as many as I could, I’d forgotten the reason I fell in love with them in the first place.

This week has changed that. I’m once again enamored of the quirky designs and the vibrant colors. And I’m also realizing another bonus, especially after today’s OOTD: it’s like you get two tops for the price of one.

My only quibble is that that black piping of this one’s neckline makes me look like I’m being garrotted. Or is it just me?
