EBEW: Color Blocking, BFSC - Skirt as a Dress!

Hi y'all..it tiz I again.  Posting two days in a row...I can't belieeeeeve it!

Well...it is because Everybody, Everywear caught me with my blogging pants down yet again.
Today the link party opened up for Color Bblocking and I didn't want to miss out.  So all day while at work, I was thinking of what I could come home and put on real quick and get some pics snapped.

I was thinking of one thing and when I got home it required too much ironing just for some darn pictures.  So I had to think of something different and I rememberd the skirt as a dress idea.

Today I came across Style4Love, and remembered the ladies of Curves and Confidence, and Neshanta Stylish She all of who rocked the skirts as dresses so fabulously. 
 So I put on my skirt (first worn here as a skirt), hiked that bad boy up and belted it. 

Tony and I ran outside and snapped a couple of pics before the rain came through and I made it in time to party with ladies over at Everybody Everywear!  Woohoo!

Be sure to check out all the colorful color blocking over yonder.

Worn with a ruffled bolero

But I feel sassier without the bolero...lol

Also I could use this outfit as another strapless entry for the Big Fat Summer Challenge!
Can we enter more than once for each item?  If not...ignore me, please.

Skirt (worn as dress): Ashley Stewart, Belt: NYC, Shoes: Simply Vera, Vera Wang

Okay...Now the question is can I get another post in this week?!?
We will see...

Stay fly and stay tuned!

  6. Hi@ Love that idea - hiking a skirt up as a dress. I don't have the right length skirt for this yet - I'm tall (5'9") and I need something that will hit mid-calf once hiked! Love it on you though.
