My friend Alison asked me to create an outfit based on this top from Urban Outfitters, and I thought it would be a fun challenge. It's a gray ruffle bib tank by Kimchi Blue and it was on sale via their website. Unfortunately, it was sold out by the time I tried to view the tank, but I still thought it would be fun to work an outfit around this top.
I decided to go with a tougher look to balance out the youthful and feminine ruffles. Since the top is rather long, I found this Alexander McQueen belt to give it more rock n' roll. With the detailing on the shirt, I wanted to find a simple necklace that wouldn't distract your attention away from the top, so I chose a multi-strand crystal necklace. The jacket is by ABS and it reminded me of the much-coveted Balmain crystal studded "Michael Jackson" jacket. Since the outfit and accessories were all pretty much monochromatic, I picked a red Lanvin bag and red sole Louboutins to give the outfit some added color. Soo...this is the end result, enjoy!
