Well, hello. Did you miss me? (Of course you did.) It's Elana from Room 334 here again, this time showing you how I styled Lisa's animal print crop top. Here's my thing with crop tops: I really like them. I do. As someone who wears high-waisted skirts often, the idea of pairing them with crop tops is pure genius to me. I've never been one to be a fan of showing off my stomach, but I have to admit that I'm kind of digging the sliver of skin peeking out if it's done in a classy way. My problem? Since I'm on the, uh, short side at only 5'2", it's rare that I find a crop top that's actually cropped on me. You could say I'm a little bitter.
So, yes, this top isn't actually short enough to be cropped on me. And yes, I was a little disappointed. However, I decided to make the most of of it. Why let the crop top win? Layered under a dress, I don't need to be reminded of my height, or lack thereof. Instead, I got a new way to style one of my favorite dresses. In fact, it's quite possible that this dress (originally from Urban Outfitters, but I got it in a Facebook swap) is my most worn item that I own. It gets more wear than I'd care to admit. Because of that, I'd thought that I had figured out all of the ways I could possibly style it. Leave it to Lisa to loan me a top that completely breathed new life into my dress. I couldn't get over that print, and I'm pretty sure I need it in my life now so I can always wear this combination.
While I decided to go with mostly black for my styling of the top, Lisa proved once again to be the master of color. She always puts together the best combinations that I would never think would work (orange, red, and blue in one outfit?), but end up looking flawless together. Is this outfit adorable or what?
Well, that's all I have for you today, but thanks for stopping by! Head over to Room 334 for outfit details, as usual.
