Saying that I’ve missed you guys is definitely an understatement. For those who may not be aware my Fashion blog was hacked and No, I shall not dwell in that nasty ordeal since I’m too Elated to be back to start whining about it!
Going Straight to it….. Let’s Discuss Crop Tops!!!
I vividly remember when crop tops hit the fashion industry and this was one thing I knew I had to get! Thus my Shopaholic self found my way to the H&M store in Egypt and just like it was heaven sent, on the display perfectly donned on the display mannequin was a Houndstooth crop top!….. I doubt you get the excitement.. HOUNDSTOOTH (my favorite print) and its a crop top! Darlings, she was definitely the one, I didn’t care how much she would cost, I was ready to live on water and bread for a week but have that top! Thank Heavens, it really didn’t pinch my pocket much so I got a skater skirt to pair it up with and the feeling I had when I was walking out of the store Hmmm… Let’s just say I texted all my friends asking what were the plans tonight because this lady here had found the ONE, The show stopper outfit of the night!
Of course, knowing my college friends, then, a plan was set and I decided to get ready….. A shock to me when I wore the crop top…. Let’s just say my bust size looked like a size no bra industry had ever produced for such a petite physique like mine, those trying hard to imagine trying picturing Johnny Bravo!!.. I was devastated. I folded it and it became my underlying mission to figure out how to wear it without looking massive! 3years down the lane which counts to a few weeks ago while vacationing, I wore my favorite midi dress from Vivo while heading for dinner when it started raining so I thought to grab something to keep me warm and the first thing I got was THE CROP TOP, I put it on and voilaaaaaaaaa!!!!! I fell in love with the look!
It gave such a classic, edgy look I knew it was definitely time to share it on my blog to help those who suffer the same sentiments as I do.
Quick fixes…. Wearing a crop top over a body hugging middy dress is the way to go!! What I love about the outfit is that I can wear it to the office as well!!… What was meant to go to my party section now lies folded in my official outfits! You’ve got to love random style realizations!!
