Floral Crop Top

I’ve had my eye on this crop top from American Apparel for a while, and thought it’s a little more 90s and on-trend than I feel comfortable with, there is something about the print that I loved and needed to wear myself.



It’s rare that I learn about fashion events in Chicago until after the fact, so when my friend DJ Lani  Love invited me to the Glossed & Found x Top Shop event at the Public Hotel in Chicago, I jumped at the chance to see fun fashion and to wear something bright and playful.

  • I chose the high-wasted skirt to go with the crop top since I’m not keen to show off my stomach but do love this trend and wanted to adapt it to what I am comfortable with.
  • Plus, since the shirt is so bright, I didn’t want the skirt to compete with it at all. Instead, I wanted an almost Audrey Hepburn vibe.
  • I chose the belt to hide any sliver of skin that might’ve shown and to match with the matte leather black booties I wanted to wear – I just got them on super-sale for $30 at Steve Madden. 
  • I grabbed the orange bag as my main accessory and to ground or call back to the colors of the shirt; same with the red lipstick – especially since the rest of the look was all black.
  • I chose gold jewelry to match the gold hardware on the bag.
  • NEXT TIME I wear this outfit, I’ll try a tighter-fitting high-waisted skirt and maybe some stiletto sandals, just to sexy it up a notch.
