Baby Sister


I pulled out this batwing cape from Babooshka Boutique for the first time in a while. Admittedly, I kind of hated its bizarre proportions at first but the entire concept of crop tops is starting to grow on me. When crops tops first started to show up again (thanks to Alexander Wang, I believe?) they reminded me of those tacky awful shirts that Baby Spice used to wear - and they still do when the look is done wrong. Personally, I'd much rather take my crop top inspiration from Fubar, rather than fashion. Fuckin' eh!

i kinda feel like anywhere outside the vicinity of the beach crop tops look tacky (when done with a bare midriff)

your cape is so cool though i want it QQ

Kylie said...

When a crop is done right, it is a sweet, sweet victory. I think you've accomplished this m'dear, that top is stunning

<3<3<3

Annie said...

I love the cape! And, from what I can see of them, your boots too.

Melanie M said...

Those proportions are amazing! Especially on you, my dear.

loving the crop top images!

I remember you mentioning something about hating crop tops, I on the other hand love crop tops but I completely agree with you on the "can look good if done right" notion.

Morag said...

Correction, you need a sweater with SPARKLY bears on it, much more wonderfully tacky.

On another note, that may be one of my favourite outfits that you have put together. I just really like it for some reason, something about it makes me smile.

Christina said...

You have an incredible legwear collection!

Þomeline said...

I think you pull off the crop top wonderfully :)

Miss Woo said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds most of Alexander Wang's collection quite vom (I do own a lace crop top though, oops!)

and you sure do the drapy well...

ruby may said...

crop tops remind me of nine year old rolerbladers at christmas

Stevie said...

I feel you on the crop starting to grow on you. I just hope it doesn't bleed into men's fashion. ;)

ruby may said...

No, sorry, no insult intended about the kids. Just idle musing. I think the cape looks stunning.

monkeytoes said...

actually you can pull off the batwing cape very well, it is good comintation with the skirt!!! love your shoes as well!!

diane said...

You look great.

I wear contrasting tank tops under crop tops. I know that sounds weird, but it actually elongates the torso and looks pretty good.

Diane said...

I think you work with the bizarre proportions of the cropped batwing cape excellently! I can't make out what the design on your tights are but boy, do they look good with this outfit. Epic win.

Jess said...

Agreed. When it's done wrong it looks awful, you look great though, I like the way it's out of proportion as wall as short...if you get what I mean. & man I love that film.

Hannah said...

You look great. I love the muted colours, and your boots!

Chelsea said...

Oh man, I once had a crop top shirt. Ssoooo not the part of my body I should show off. I feel it is that way for many people, but they either disregard or don't know it.

shewearsclothes said...

I gotta say, November is kind of a bad time of the year to discover that you like crop tops.

Damn though Rumi makes it look fly as fuck. But then again that lady looks fly as fuck in everything.

Excuse my French.

I love your little batwing thing though.

emily said...

when i first saw crop tops, i was like "whaaat?!" but when it's done classily, i love it. <3
