What's in my closet that I haven't worn yet? Easy: this top. Velvet lace design/sheer/fringe/crop...you can see why I bought this. I wanted something witchy to wear in the summer when I read tarot cards at the cafe, so I thought this would be awesome.
I bought it in December. Why haven't I worn it? for one thing it was cold. Another thing, it's sheer. Anyone else have a problem with black sheer things? All my things are black, so when I layer black-on-black sheer...you can't see anything. What's the point? I've got a black bralette which would work well...but the thing's uncomfortable. Also, the fit is kind of ...off. You can see how square it is on the bottom picture. so it's kind of baggy. I look kind of saggy baggy in it. It almost looks home-sewn.
velvet fringe top crop featuring a fringe crop top
Here's my polyvore set with stuff I'd wear it with...with stuff I actually own. Left to right: I've got a very trad-goth lacy full skirt...but that's kind of out of style. I've got velvet bellbottoms from the 90s (can you GET any more 90s) but it's low-rise, like all things were back then--too much skin. Also velvet for the summer...yeesh. I've also got the very-today nu-goth sheer skirt...but that's kind of a different aesthetic from the boho gypsy top. next up is the miniskirt...it's not bad...probably what I'll wear it with. and finally high-waisted short shorts...probably what i'll wear it with. Jewelry: my usual, plus black feather earrings...which I also haven't worn yet!!! my moonstone moon necklace.
Honestly, i'm not a fan of any of any of those looks.
Suggestions on how to style this boxy boho crop top are VERY welcome!
