Cream of the crop

(please excuse the awful pun)

I know it's quite trend-whorish, but I've recenty become obsessed with crop-tops. They take me back to my grade one days of crimped hair, the spice girls and platform shoes.

My love for Melissa Joan Hart in "Clarissa Explains it All" deserves a post (or 12) of it's own

I think these pictures show how a crop top can be worn in so many different ways. Many people make the mistake of thinking crop tops can only be slutty, or childish.

I found this crop top at a little market stall in Newtown during a recent trip to sydney for $5.

Due to the FREEZING weather I wore a long sleeve top underneath (although I do love the sneaky flash of flesh when worn solo with high-waisted shorts or a skirt). Despite the darts in the front giving me 1940's style pointy boobs, it's a great fit and I got 100% positive comments from friends. There is some really cool criss-cross detailing at the back, but I forgot to take a photo of the rear.
