Sometimes, I’ll come across a top at a boutique that I really like -- the color is mine, and it’s got the perfect trim, and the material is lovely, and I really want to get it… but there’s just something not right about it. Usually, what I find to be the problem is, in my mind, it’s just not facing the right way.No disrespect to the designer (sorry!) but I feel like they got that part wrong. So I’ll simply flip it around and try it on backwards instead. Voila – it’s the top I hoped it would be. Then I take it home and cut the tag out so it doesn’t scratch my neck.
Here are a top and dress that I most recently did this with (goodness, get the girl an iron!):
A little top from Barney's Co-Op
|this is how the top is supposed to be...|
|... and this is how i wear it, with the back in the front. i like the higher neck line + the lace...|
|... and i think the front looks sweet in the back.|
And a James Perse dress:
|i've already reversed it so the back is now the front...|
|... and the would-be front is in the back.|
(obviously, to wear it as intended, you'd also need something underneath!)
Cool trick, no?
