crisis in disguise.

keeping it short today as i'm dealing
with a crisis at the office.

this used to be one of my favorite striped dresses.
it has cute diagonal insets at the waist...but
i've slacked on exercising and have become too self conscious
to wear it.

found an unexpected solution with this crochet top.
it hides camouflages just enough but still allows
the stripes to show thru.
and, of course, i had to throw in some leopard.

  13. Oh noes, office crisis, those are never fun. The crochet top did the trick eh? I've a mind to ask my mother to crochet me a top or two... she's always asking if I'd wear a thing or other if she made them.
