In The Fashionista's Closet: Backwards Glance

Reiko gifted me this daishiki after I mentioned that she never wears it anymore (I originally saw her wearing it on her blog.) I guess I need to look at her other older outfit posts to see what else I can get! Just kidding...(but not really)...just kidding...(I think)...

I decided to wear it backward, I had tried it on this way before but it hasn't been warm enough to wear it until now.

I was watching Good Times recently (the episode was "The Rent Party) and saw this:

Yep that's my daishiki....

I'm looking forward to wearing lots of tops backwards!

Do you have any items that you wear in unconventional ways?

earrings: can't remember
pencil skirt: Ross
shoes: Jessica Simpson
hair: first day braidout

And a fitting honor to the boys who started it all:

Kriss Kross - Jump

Make it a great day!

Ok, so I love the Daishiki and the pencil skirt is an unexpected surprise. Who knew? Oh wait...Juanette. I'm about to close my office door, listen to "Jump" and do the dance right now :~)

LOL @ the rent party, sure is the same one. I love this fit. I don't wear many backwards, but I sure will look at my tops and dresses now and see if I can.

Looks great backwards. I just saw that episode of Good Times the other night of Wanda's rent party.

I can't believe you busted out Kriss Kross. Totally made me smile and made me feel old at the same time.

I wear clothes in whatever way suits my mood and outfit, but there is one sweater that I always wear backwards.

Love this look! I like layering pieces that some might not think to layer. I was in love with Kris Kross backin the day!
