A few months ago I pinned this top to my pinterest board...even though it was out of stock and I couldn't have it. Though even if it had been in stock, it was 40 buck-a-roonies. And who has 40 bucks to spend on a shirt? Maybe some of you. But not this little cheapskate. Only in my dreams do I buy expensive items. But that is what pinning is all about, right? Dreaming.
But then sometimes dreams come true. And sometimes the reality is a little bit different than the dream. Like this top, for instance. Not quite as fabulous as the modcloth version but the same idea, nonetheless.
The cut is a little bit different, the stripes are a little bit thinner, it was 70% cheaper, and it came with this belt-- that may or may not be placed in an awkward spot.
I put it on my body and thought, "Are belts supposed to go right under your chest?" I mean I know belts are used as accessories these days instead of for logical reasons--like holding up your pants.
But, I can't tell how I feel about the belt. It's not holding up anything...it's not really accentuating my waist..it's just kind of there- right under my chest.
Do you think I should get rid of the belt and cut off the little loops?
Or do you like it better with the belt?
