Definitely not love at first sight for the crop top and me. However, it was after the both of us made it through the awkard beginning stages of puberty in the 90s and early 2000s that we slowly became friends. And friendship turned into casual dating. And now in 2010, we are living together in perfect harmony! We’ve reached a greater understanding of each other, and I’ve discovered that the crop top can be much more than a breather for the belly; it is also an essential layering piece which can easily be used to create interest and dimension. The one in this photo I made from an old tshirt (tutorial on my new blog coming soon!), and I like how the skirt almost seems appears to be gushing out from underneath. yea, I dig crop tops big time. And the Kinks! Those British lads sure knew how to bust out tunes to bewitch my lobes. All Kinks, all the time.
