The unintentional crop top


Anyone who knows me particularly well knows that I'm not particularly a girl who follows fashion trends. I'm the girl who screams out 'just watch, that will be out before the winter is over'. I'm a sceptic, but I also just like staying true to my own aesthetic. There is a double irony to this top. Firstly, it is actually a crop top, but (secondly) I hadn't intended to wear it like it was one. That strip of flesh you can see? It actually happens to be a strip from the skirt itself. Ooh, deceiving pictures...

Regardless, I still love the top. I mean, it's beaded, and everyone knows Belle loves things which are beaded. Also, what you can't see is it has a v-shaped back. Quite flirty, if I don't say so myself. This top was a little treasure which my mum whipped out of her wardrobe, which I'm not sure if I should be worried about. (1) Why did my mum have a crop top? (2) Why was my mum the size of a 17 year old girl? One was disconcerting, and the other just plain despressing, so I'm going to annoy these questions of mine.

This is the last of the Sardinia-based posts. I know, you might wanna bust out those tissues, or perhaps rejoice? It certainly means that the background might become a bit more predictable, as back in London I have a lot more to work with. What I don't have is sun... That's quite unfortunate.
