This top was given to me recently from a local charity shop that is about to have a large impact on Year 2 of my bloggy blog (don’t you just loooove teasers???).
As you can see, it doesn’t look all that great on me. Also, the elastic on the bottom was all wonky and stretched out.
I looooove the funky print, super light fabric, and the neckline of this top; but I’m completely over the poofy shirt with an elastic waistband thing. It makes everyone look fat and preggo, and I think it’s time to modernize this top a bit.
Inspired by all the crop tops (reminiscent of the late 80’s/Early 90’s,) I’ve been seeing making a comeback, I decided to quickly make this blah top a bit more hip.
Well, that was easy! I decided to keep the bottom edge raw, but I wanted to limit how much it could fray, and embellish it a bit.
As I’m closer to 30 than 20, I wasn’t quite ready to show the midriff just yet, so I layered my new top over a contrasting patterned tank, and an awesome skirt I scored at a recent clothing swap.
I headed to Delaney’s with the fella to celebrate the birthday of a very funny guy.
