Nature is a language.


Crop tops are a contentious issue. On one hand, they connote good things like Cher in Clueless. On the other hand, there is this. I choose to take inspiration from neither and head straight to 'Terry' from the epic mockumentary FUBAR. Basically, I just bought a mens XL grey shirt from the thrift store and then stencilled on 'Fuckin' EH' using black fabric paint. Simple and straightforward, like my favourite rednecks from rural Alberta. Oh, and I added my monkey hat and Beetlejuice socks to the outfit for good measure.

Seriously, if you haven't seen this movie yet there is something wrong.

Great inspired outfit.
Funny movie clip. Jumping over the fire, stupidly funny.

You look so incredibly awesome, it's amazing how much a good shot of grunge-y layering can make unwearable stuff more accessible. However, the crop top look is undoubtedly helped by your skinny-ness- I know if I tried to pull it off I'd look like a matron, with a chest the size of a wide-screen television.

I absolutely adore this outfit. The DIY crop top looks fantastic with the skirt, as well as with the Beetlejuice socks and boots.
This is definitely one of my favorite blogs. I've been following it before I even had an account, and I love the way you put together your style. Keep it up! You're such an inspiration. (:

Crazy, I've never seen this movie!
I know, I know.....
I've also never seen Taxi Driver or Citizen Kane. And I thought Casablanca was boring.
