While at Target the other day, I noticed rows upon rows of clearance racks in the women’s clothing department. That is very dangerous for me. I usually steer clear of that department, because there are too many cute things to tempt me, but I had to take a look to see if there were any screaming deals.
We’re on scrimp and save mode, so I do feel a bit guilty about buying clothes that I don’t need. But this top was $4.50. And the print was just too cute. So now I won’t buy any more clothes until after we move into our new house.
The top was a simple crop in XXL. It was more than a bit too wide, but at the perfect length for a longish crop. It hits right at the top of my jeans. BUT, the back was somehow shorter than the front. How was this?
I added a black block of accordion pleated jersey in the back. This lenghtened the back hem by 3 1/2 inches. So I can comfortably wear this top without my guts showing in the front or the back.
I also pinned a little gathering (true late 80s style) with a yellow heart earring that I have. Earrings make pretty great pins, did you know that?
