it's absolute essential crop top!:8 ways to wear it

i just purchased the crop top from cotton.ink's new collection: absolute essential. just like the name, it's absolutely essential! i really think it's something everyone should own in their closet for its versatility. they also came with the cutest pocket and pin!
at the first glance, i thought it will be tricky to wear. but after a few experiment, i just realize that this is actually the most essential thing ever.
now i'm gonna show you how my experiment went!

experiment 1
i never want to show my belly off, so hipster pants is out of the options. i wear the high waist one instead. and this pants is just perfect for the eighties vibe.

experiment 2
still in the high-waist field, but now i tuck the top into the pants. FYI this crop top has the perfect length, not too short, nor too long it still considered as a crop top.

experiment 3
err...it's not really another experiment since i just add a blazer and shawl (also from cottonink). but i wanna tell you i really love the color of this blazer. i don't know why, i always drawn into this lime-greenish color recently. it might be my new favorite color. lime green is the new grey. yay to colors!

experiment 4
clashing pattern. and the touch of green.

experiment 5
wow another lime green! but actually, this is an experiment of crop top over dress. the belt accentuate my waist, make me look slimmer. love it. haha!

experiment 6
ok now, this is something that gonna give my hubby heart-attack, LOL, but i actually like it. the turban is made from tubular convertible shawl, and i did some knot to the crop top. flashing my tummy just a bit, still tolerable..hehe..

experiment 7
the turban still there, now along with harem pants.

experiment 8
here's the proof that the crops not only good for casual day but also for working time (at least for creative worker). i'm so gonna try this if i were working. but i'm not. now i miss my office.. sigh.

after those experiment, i can imagine plenty other ways to wear it. but eight is enough, i guess. being a stylist, a photographer also a model all at once is really tiring. and i don't want you get nausea for staring at me too long! ahaha...
now, are you interested to give this crop thing a try?

Crop thought

The crop top has lost its grace since 1990s passed. After that, it was left behind where people don't wanna look back. Until now.

At the end of 2000s, crop top seems like awaken from its long sleep. Some designers brought it back to runway as they featured it on their collections along with street style muses. Soon, the crop top become considerable again.

I don't really surprised for its comeback. Everything 80's and 90's is on the top nowadays (for too long). From the basic leggings, grungy outfit to the shoulder pads. And if the shoulder pads can spring, why don't crop tops?

Personally, I don't like the crop top trend when it hit 90s. The image of spears and aguilera in it with their pierced belly button just left me blah. Unfortunately I don't really 'live' in 80s so I can't be a witness of how crop top worn by then. But as far as I concern, it was far more interesting. Well, I've been a fan of 80s clothes for a long time, sometimes people mistaken me for a girl lost from the time machine :p but I haven't really try this crop top thing. Maybe I still haunted by 90's star belly button and I really really don't wanna see anyone belly button nor to show mine.

Somehow the 09 crop top trend distracted me. I found it better to be worn with high-waist pants/skirts, another retro thing. Or maybe for an outerwear with body-con dresses. I guess it has many possibilities to wear with. I'm sure I'm gonna give it a try.

But of course, not everyone find it interesting. How about you? Are you interested to try this on or do you wish it will be dead (again) soon? :)

Ps: I don't have a flat tummy. I might be screwed in it.. Hahahaha...

Gettin' wild in Friday market

It's friday. And friday market in front of my campus is on!
Setiap hari Jumat, jalan ganesa Bandung berubah jadi pasar kaget yang dihiasi berbagai macam lapak. Mulai dari makanan sampe sepatu ada semua. Meskipun demikian, biasanya gw malas melihat2, karena berhubung posisinya deket masjid salman dan hanya ada di hari Jumat, tentunya pasar ini lebih banyak dikunjungi laki-laki yang abis solat jumat, sehingga yang dijual lebih banyak barang2 cowo.
Tapii disaat gw lagi celingukan sendirian abis diusir dari perpus yang mau tutup, mata gw melihat lapak baju secondhand yang menarik! Hohoho.. I love thrifted clothes!
It's a small lapak, but apparently yang. paling laris manis tanjung kimpul. Terbukti dengan betapa berdesak2annya tu lapak. dengan gadis2 buas yang haus akan baju2 murah.. *termasuk gw tentunya*
well, sebenernya ga banyak pilihan disini, tapi ternyata gw nemu2 aja dong baju yang nancep di hati.. I bought 2 dresses and 2 blouses for idr40k. Pretty cheap lahh..
I bought 2 blouses in the same theme: wildlife. Yes, I bought a snakeskin and leopard print blouses dan ibu2 dan gadis2 lain di lapak itu memandang gw dengan tatapan heran. "Kamana atuh macaaaann.." Hohohoho..auum!
Sementara dressesnya aga beradablaah.. Gw beli satu simple black dress dan satu dress chiffon motif kembi2 kuning menyala. (Selera lu nggii...). Ahay!
Tapi maap yak bajunya belom bisa 'mejeng' disini karena masih dalam proses pe-laundry-an. Janji dehh suatu saat nanti mata anda akan dipolusikan (is that a correct word?) dengan sesosok makhluk bermotif macan dan uler. Wekekeke..
See u next time! :D
