Trousers: American Apparel
Who doesn’t love a 3D flower top? These have been around for a while and I got mine well over a year ago from eBay. Then all of a sudden they hit the mainstream and American Apparel even knocked up their own version which retailed at a
slightly ridiculously higher price than what I paid for mine or even what I think it’s worth.
If a top or any item of clothing for that matter in my opinion is not worth the price tag I simply won’t purchase it. In the case of this top there is no differ niece between the eBay version and the AA version as I have closely compared the two and really can’t understand how they can charge the amount they do for it. The disco pants I totally get being more expensive than the other high street versions because the AA ones really do suck everything upwards and inwards and hold it all very firmly in place whilst still being the most comfy trousers around.
I balanced the slightly baggy and bulkier top half with my second skin navy disco pants on the bottom whilst keeping the whole look and feel of the outfit casual by wearing with some thick soled pumps and my hair in a messy pony tail.
This top is great for wearing casually but it’s also a good choice when you want to dress up a bit but the weather is not on your side and it’s a bit chilly. I wore this on a night out once tucked into a zip front leather skirt and added a pair of studded ankle boots. It was a real mish-mash of textures and the overall look was quite dressed up but not too OTT which was perfect for the night out.
Do any of you have this top or do you have it in the other colours available? How do you wear yours? I love to see how people style things differently.
