MIDRIFF

Some outfit update for this week. I haven't worn these leather shorts for about six months. Funny because six months ago, I wore these high-waisters at least once a week. Thanks to those over-worn days, the leather has become really supple and I no longer feel like I'm bounded in tight leather. Paired it with a slight crop top which reminded me of Britney Spears' baby one more time days..
I find it interesting how trends are recycled every now and then. Remember those cut off shirts Britney always sports? Well, the midriff-show trend has returned but this time it's far more sophisticated (check out the Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2012 reference at the end of this post.. no word description necessary). Back then, everyone showed off their unique belly rings.. but now, it's the upper abs area that shows. Like the trend or not, it's still 'friendlier' for girls who are not blessed with a flat belly (.. like me). Anyhow, I'm off to do some more errands now.. Happy belated thanksgiving if you're celebrating :)

Love love love. You just can't go wrong with leather! And you're right about the mid drift trend. I actually like that I can show off my upper abs instead of lower. Like with cut out dresses and stuff. It's still kind of sexy, but not too out there.

Well, I'm glad that the wheel of fashion always turns, that mean I can raid my Mom's closet for her long-strapped designer satchel since they are 'in' again now, hahaha!
