In the weeks leading up to hubby’s annual Black Tie Ball, I was dead set on wearing a crop top ensemble.  I ordered and returned countless skirts and crop tops trying to find the right pair.  It had to show just a sliver of skin.  The volume of the skirt would determine the type of crop.  And the fit of the skirt (especially the waist line) would have to be perfect since it would be exposed.  In the end, I gave up and ended up going with a simple white dress I found on clearance online (that post coming soon!)  If you want to try this look for a semi-formal event like a wedding, just take the skirt to a knee or tea length.  I’d love to see your pictures if anyone attempts this look!

  1. I love it! I could totally picture you wearing it. If only I could pull it off. So definitely cannot wear a crop top! Btw… I’ll be in Chicago in April!!!!

  2. you should next time! i can’t picture anyone else i know pulling it off as well as you! :)

  3. Seriously, if anyone can pull this look off, it’s you!

    Gwyneth does it again… just when I think I can’t take any of her posturing via Goop, she goes and pulls off a stunner like this – incredible!

  4. love your blog, doll!
