Cut To The Chase

Happy, happy Friday, everyone! Thank you for stopping by the Crystal Avenue today. Whatever your plans are, I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead.

Last week, I purchased the Criss Cross Out Solid Top from 2020avenue, an affordable online boutique with trendy women’s clothing. No matter the season, I am a sucker for dark articles of clothing. Other than the color, what attracted me to the Criss Cross Out Solid Top was the aesthetic. When I viewed the top, I first saw the cut out sleeves and thought the design was really cool and I would be able to create different, effortless chic looks. However when I looked at the back design, it was the deal breaker for me own this top, as the top shows a subtle hint of skin and is smidge of sexy. 

To keep the effortless chic look, I paired the Criss Cross Out Solid Top with a pair of shorts from Forever 21. The print on the shorts tie into the aesthetic of the top, as the belt portion and triangle sides are black. Also, I wanted to continue to correlate the cut out design with the top, thus I picked a pair of triangle earrings from Forever 21, and my lace-up booties “Trorecia” from Aldo to finish off the look. I can’t wait to create more looks with this top through the different seasons.

Before I end this post, I wanted to mention that I have added disqus to my blog, so it will be much easier if you want to say hello, have any questions or want to reach out and talk to me about one of my blog posts through your disqus, google, twitter, or facebook accounts. See you in my next one!
