Indigo, Indigo...wherefore art thou Indigo??



Ok so yes, my title's a bit odd this week...but if you'd gone thru the search I did in order to find the exact shade of indigo to match Luna's swatch AND my style, you'd totally get it!

See, when I started this challenge I said to myself...."self...we are going to try and use only what we have in our inventory, and if we have to buy something, it MUST be something we would actually wear again and that matches and shows who we are!!" 

I refuse to wear/buy something just because it is in the color for the week...it has to be something that I actually like, something I would wear again.  I know I know...I'm making things harder for myself, but hey...I never said I was normal, lol.

After much browsing and searching, and finding more god awful items then I care to remember...I stumbled upon this totally cute dress from fri.day.  I immediately knew it was the one and set about creating the look. 

The sleeves and skinny tie immediately set my mind a whirling to a retro 80s vibe and voila...Aeva the sexy librarian who listens to Duran Duran and <3's John Taylor was born!

Love it or Hate it?
