Ava Grace's Closet: What I Wore : You CAN do Cropped

What I Wore : You CAN do Cropped

I am an 80's kid.
My favourite movies were all written by John Hughes.
I like Duran Duran. Depeche Mode. Dead or Alive.
Madonna. Well, I love Madonna.
I wore crop tops before all of the kids who are wearing crop tops today were even a thought.
I would not wear one again.
Unless of course, it was layered over a crisp white shirt.



sunglasses - ChicNova | shirt - Banana Republic | cropped sweater - Forever XXI {steal!}
skirt - Design History {no longer available / similiar} | necklace - J. Crew {no longer available / love this}
clutch - Rebecca Minkoff {no longer available / love this for the Spring} | booties - B. Makowsky 
If layers upon layers of rubber bracelets come back, I'm out. 
In case you were wondering.

  6. Completely chic and gorgeous. So sophisticated. And just say no to rubber bracelets, blech. I didn't like them in the 80's either.

    1. So...I read this comment and have been thinking about it on and off all early morning. I just can't decide. I liked her Lucky Star/Like a Prayer phase. How's that? :o And I want to hear more of your story...have you shared on the blog?

  12. Dearest Susan,
    You wear a very cute cropped and boxy sweater over your crisp white shirt! I always loved cropped sweaters, but not the boxy ones for wearing solo.
    Madonna I liked for her singing but NOT for her morals.
    Hugs and stay cozy inside with that much of snow. It is now icy here with lots of icicles.
