WIW: altered clothes

Today I wore my teal silk sleeveless button-up (sleeves removed at Kate's suggestion, and it's much better this way), with my green shorts (also Kate's suggestion) and my silver-painted shoes.

I also tried the combo with black belt and shoes. 

Which is better?

Is the combo in general okay?  I don't feel like this top fits perfectly, even without the sleeves.  But I do think it's good enough to wear again this summer, or until something better comes along :)

(ETA: the two legs really are the same length.  This photo shows me that maybe I should stop that habit of standing crooked for photos...)

    Thumbs up from me! The two colours look great together.

    Love the combination, particularly with the silver.

    I love the combination too. I've even been playing with using it in home decor! Silver is my fav accompaniment too.

    Really nice.  Like it with silver the best!

    I love the color combo, particularly with the silver. Terrific DIY!

    I like the color combo but not sure that top fits you so well.  It is bunching when tucked and not a perfect length when untucked. It is a lovely color so I can see why you should wear it until the better one comes along!

    I like it. I like both stylings but maybe prefer the silver best.

    I really like the color combination. To me, the one on the left is more soft, feminine, whereas the one on the right is more androgynous or masculine. Both are flattering to you, although my personal choice tends towards the first one.

    Looks great - love it with the silver!
