Not A Dress

6.19.14-8

I would never have pegged myself as a crop top kind of girl. Ever since the baby tees of the late 90s / early 00s, I’ve been scarred for life. I try not to show any type of midriff for your sake, my sake, everyone’s sake. 

6.19.14-7

6.19.14-56.19.14-3
6.19.14-26.19.14-1

  

Until the past year or so, I was against crops and then styles like this started popping up.  How can you say no to a fancy, lady like top / skirt combo that makes your middle look like a belt?  It’s a classy crop, my friends. Because I’m the classiest. I mean I just explained a ‘skin belt’ to you. SO CLASS. 

(I haven’t slept well in a few days so if this didn’t make sense, you are not alone. Didn’t make sense to me either.)

    I have always been anti-crop top myself mainly because I don’t want to scare myself, small children or animals by wearing one. But THIS I would wear! It’s ladylike with just a hint of crop depending on your movements. Love it! And the shoes are perfect!

  4. Baby Tees!!! I haven’t thought about those in AGES! That’s why I love this blog…the nostalgia factor.

    • Kendi Lea says:

      I can definitely help! We carried this brand at bloom. So this brand (JOA) runs fairly small. XS is going to be your 0. S – I’d say 2/4. (depends on waist for the skirt). M – 4/6 (again depends on body shape) and L- 8/10 maybe. I’m wearing the L in both the top and skirt, if that helps! It’s also a very full skirt (with crinoline and lining), just so you are expecting that! The top fits nicely and isn’t too tight in the chest. If you are of the smaller chest club, I’d say maybe size down one.

    I love this matching set! You look amazing. :) I'm starting to feel more comfortable about a skin belt myself (though I tend to keep it at a skinny skin belt).

  138. That is such a lovely skirt. Love how it flows and fits. Although not a fan of crop tops, you pull this one off perfectly. Love the shoes too and the color.

    Love this! Is the top from Shopbop in UK sizing? I'm wanting to order it along with the skirt from Piperlime but the sizing is much different! (large at piperlime is a 10/12 US but a large on shopbop is an 8 US!) I've never ordered from shopbop before. Thanks!!
