Way back in January I made a snarky comment about crop tops becoming terribly fashionable again, as part of the wider 90's vibe that seems to be hanging around at the moment. Little did I know that I would actually succumb to the trend. But how could I resist such a delicately beaded, sheer peach crop top? I don't think I've ever owned anything peach/blush/nude coloured, but I've actually enjoyed styling this top and have worn it on several occasions in the two weeks since I bought it. Today I wore the top with black clothing and red accessories. The box bag I painted and decorated myself. When it was plain I never used it, but now I love it. Having done this I then customised my shoes to match. I'm a mega matchy-matchy person, I just couldn't help myself. A little bit of a risqué outfit, but thoroughly fun to wear!

Shoes (Office), top (Topshop), skirt (Topshop), braces (Primark).

Make-up shot - I risked the possibility of looking like I've been punched/not slept by using a pinky red eyeshadow (its actually blusher). Silver eyeshadow at the lower lash line and a dark red lipstick, which was actually much darker than the photo indicates.

I love the way you paired the braces with the tube top underneath the crop top!!! Plus... your makeup is done so well! And those eyebrows are fantastically sculpted!

I'm in love with your blog and adding it on my Sites to Know!

Beautiful bone structure might i add.

I think you are absolutely amazing. I've seen about 2 dozen "bohemian" or "edgy rocker" looks in blogs -- pretty much a sea of same. But you are completely left, something totally unexpected and you do it beautifully. You remind me of a tangible Dita Von T, and I love you for it. Keep on being you. Its truly amazing.
