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.
Obesity and Speed
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.

Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales: making me proud to be Australian. Together they are changing the direction of Australian fashion, taking risks and not being afraid to turn their wacky ideas into runway shows.
Romance Was Born was by far the highlight of last months Australian Fashion week, with their deep sea inspired collection providing a refreshing distraction from the current grey cloud that seems to be hanging over the country. Featuring items such as a knitted squid headpiece, crocheted beards, shell encrusted bum-bags and oyster patterned shorts, with an underwater cove of treasures as the backdrop, the collection represented what I believe fashion is all about; having fun! I won't go into a rant about the economic downturn, but I think it is important to remember that fashion can be used as a way to escape and bring joy to a society that is feeling very down in the dumps.
Knitted squid heapiece- perfect for the freezing winter ahead
Grandma fashion..... :)

There are no words to describe how I feel about the above...
