how to cheat your way into a crop top
Crop tops are definitely not for everyone (myself included) but they are so cute, youthful and summery that I can't help but want to try to rock the trend at least a couple times. The problem is, I don't have a flat washboard tummy AND I have stretchmarks from pregnancy. So what to do when posed with these problems? Fake it to make it! Here are some tips on how you can cheat your way into a crop top.
- The lower pelvic region (?) near your crotch is usually much flatter than the belly so pick a crop top that is a bit longer (like the one I'm wearing in this post) and match with super low slung bottoms. I opted to go with shorts since I wore this to last night's Slash concert in Araneta Coliseum (which was of epic proportions...gahhh). But this trick will also work great with maxi skirts.
- For shorter crop tops, get a pair of Spanx and some high waist bottoms. If you feel like the look is still a bit too revealing, you can throw in a great blazer or jacket to cover up a bit and create a more sophisticated look.
- Don't care. Don't be conscious. Be happy. Be free. Own it.

A couple of photos from last night's concert. Super fun, made me feel like I was back in the 90s. The experience of being in a moshpit while your childhood hero plays just a few feet away from you is immeasurable. Will share more in a different post as well as some photos.
