I'm hoping that what I lack in photography skill and equipment, I make up for with the cool lighting effects in my apartment, made possible by the bright and beautiful sunshine that gave actual springtime a run for its money today. Yeehaw!
So anyways. The whole point of this post is, look at the top I made! I got some beautiful red and gold lace the other day with a top like this in mind. The flowers have a golden sheen to them, which, in my opinion, makes me look like somewhat of a royal. I could totes be 49th in line to the throne in these regal duds. I'm just sayin... watch your back Countess Lady Baroness Duke-Smithington of the Shire.
Look at those golden rays of sunshine!
It's just a front and back panel that I trimmed with cream colored bias binding for a bit of contrast. I love love love love love love love this top thrown over either a tank top and skirt like here [that skirt was one of my best ever clothing investments] or just with black jeans. You know, for when I need those around me to know and fear my exotic royal status. Which, trust me, is all the time.
