Cropping it before Crop Over...BFSC (the good and the ugly)

So I'm headed to the lovely Barbados in a few hours...wanted to get this post out while I have the chance.  :)

The lovely crop top (second to last thing on my Big Fat Summer Challenge list.  HHHHHHH!  THIS mess was a challenge.  Had to find something that covers 2 out of the 2 1/2 back/belly rolls, doesn't cling, looks nice and fits the purpose.

In steps our friend ASOS.   Following the example of a few of our fashionably curvy divas, I ventured into the world of straight sizes...

Someone rescue me!

Apparently both of my goddaughters are professional photobombers...Isn't she beautiful though?

I have to tell you...I loved this outfit.  I was sufficiently covered and comfy.  What do you think?

Let me share this with you though...

If plan to go to the movies with your beau and reach in for some sugar while on the concession line, make sure you put a pretty bra under that there crop top ok (thank you lady in the pretty gold dress for pointing out that I, Tiffany McGuire, flashed the right side of the room with black satin).

That's all.

I love this skirt but boy am I glad I hemmed the heck out of that polyester.  Bad enough it's hotter than a winter weight sharkskin suit, it also frays like all heck.

Skirt: DIY
Bracelets: Misc (gifted and purchased)
Belt: Ashley Stewart

Crop top # 2...not so great...

I liked it in the mirror, got compliments on the outfit but in pictures there are a whole lot of reasons why this top is not for anyone over a 36 C...

Ahh well:  E for effort!

Skirt: DIY
Shoes: Steve Madden
Bracelets: Miscellaneous (gifted and purchased)
Handbag: Louis Vuitton

One more to go!  Pray I finish this two-piece in time....
