Put my thing down, flip it and reverse it

It's a backwards dress! Get it? The title is from that Missy Elliot song "Work It? "
I took those pictures awhile back when I first got the dress. I'm now thinking that I could've kept those sleeves, maybe just changed the neckline?
There it is without the sleeves. I found it annoying to try and button this dress up the back, as my arms don't properly bend that way. That's when I did a 180. Sadly, I had to sacrifice the pockets. They didn't look right on the butt.
But wait, there's more! I need help deciding on the neckline. And in a shameless effort to get a few clicks on my blog, check out the full post here and see if you have an opinion about collars for me. (Psst. The title is supposed to be from "Total Eclipse of the Heart", one of my old karaoke jams.)

Very nice. I think a rounded neck would look lovely but if you want to keep it as v neck then definitely folded under like the armholes

This is a wonderful colour on you. I like the v neck. it just keeps it from being too dark near your face.

What a great refashion! I love the new v-neck, and the dress fits you perfectly.

Total Eclipse of the Heart was one of my favorite songs when I was younger. :)

Thanks, everyone. I think I'll keep the v neck. I'm not totally worried about the armholes because I'll probably wear it to work under a thin little cardigan.
