My Drapey Halter Top

Today’s piece began looking like this.

A large & saggy tank. :(

Let me just say that one of the many things I’m digging about my new dress form is no longer having to subject you guys to what I really look like in the morning if I don’t feel like it.  You might never see me without makeup on again, friends (Yeah right…as if I could resist making silly faces in my “before” pics for very long)!

I needed to wear something with the colors Garnet and Black to Support these guys in their College World Series game against Virginia.

Go Cocks!!!!

As there were no garnet ugly ducklings in my stash, I went with a too-big tank.

I snipped off one of the straps.

Buh-Bye!

Then I turned the raw edge from the missing strap under twice, and hemmed it with the line of the seam.  Then I poked my head through the existing strap, making it a halter top!  I tossed on my faux garnet earrings and red flats to show my support for the old Alma Mater!  :)

Check out my massive handbag!

I love how the top drapes and the asymmetrical neckline!  I also like how the bottom hem shows just a teensy bit of skin.  ;)

digging the drape!

I also loooove the sexy back!

Ooh la la!

I met up with some pals at The Thirsty Fellow to watch the big game after work.  :)

Go Cocks!

Gleefully watching our guys being awesome!

Our smiles become strained in the 13th inning…

The Gamecocks fought a hard 13 innings to pull off a 3-2 victory!  Huzzah!  My fingers are firmly crossed that they’ll be able to win the World Series yet again!

Go Cocks!  :)

    The top is adorable! I understand the convenience of the dress form but I am already missing the before pictures on you and your silly faces.
