so, they say we can’t wear this, we can’t wear that, well forget y’all, ima wear what i want. and ima look good in it. amirite?
that’s what i said to myself when in las vegas and on the hunt for a crop top. lo and behold i was in the plus size section at forever21, and what?! what is that?! is that a crop top?! awwww jeah. but oh no, y’all. it’s a SMALL. that means:
it is from the straight size section it might be the only one someone was playin when they put it up here cause they prolly didn’t realize it was supposed to be baggy … this store is redonk huge. but i must have this.
major kudos to the folks who work at the forever21 in las vegas on the strip – they helped me track it down. i’m talking i talked to EVERY person that worked in that store from the manager to the new guy. i bought it in an L, and it had a funky pocket on it that would flap and … cause distractions. so i sewed it down. look at me now! first, i put myself all over the internet in a bathing suit AGAIN, and now i’m showin people my tummy. mmhm.
omg y’all my tummy’s out!!! like almost in public!
still pulling faces! but it’s almost time to see my tummy …
ok so the rundown on my outfit and all the item’s locales.
crop top is from forever21 – the straight size section tho. don’t go up in the plus size section lookin for it cause it ain’t there. yet. my shorts (which are lace) are ALSO from forever21. they were a recent purchase, so go forth and buy your own! my shoes are from aldo. they’re velvet, and they’re on sale. my leggings with the zips up the side are from one of my plus size clothing swaps. if you’re in NYC and want to come to the next one (it’s next sunday!), learn more here! my bracelets are from aldo (gold one) and jc penney (gold bangle) my earrings are from long ago and far away. no that’s not a store, they’re really so old i don’t remember where they’re from. my clutch is from aldo, also a recent purchase.
stay tuned for the video on how to STYLE a crop top.

PS – i know my blog is missing OOTD’s right? that’s what everyone loves. i’m going to make a concerted effort to do more OOTD posts. especially now that i’ve figured out how to set up the camera tripod on my own and how far back to stand. huzzah! soon sean-paul will be back and able to take snaps again, too. maybe THOSE will have better coloring and focus. tra la.
