"I was never one to believe the hype, save that for the black and white." - fun.  
If 2012 was the year of the mullet dress, 2013 is shaping up to be the year of the mullet top. These "party in the back" tops are all over the place right now. I must admit I'm not really into the ones that are your basic tee in the front and then have some crazy, kooky print on the back. They seem a bit disjointed to me. However, this little lacy number, I can get down with.
This top comes in many different incarnations on Anthropologie's website. There's the Lace Divide Tee in 4 options, the Lingered Lace Top I'm wearing here in 4 options, and there's even a emerald green one on sale.  I was very tempted to get it in a solid color, especially the green one on sale (because you all know how I love me some green), but I decided to step out of my safe, solid colored box and go with this black and white striped version instead. I know, how very avant-garde of me... Anyway, with black and white being the only colors in the top, I knew I wanted to liven things up a bit by adding some color on the bottom, and what better color to gussy up an outfit with than red?
Speaking of bottoms, I suppose I should be upset that my thighs are touching in all these photos. I've heard that thigh gaps are all the rage these days. I think that's one trend I'm just going to have to ride out. I love to get my eat on too much. Besides, who knows? If mullets can make a come back maybe, just maybe, fat thighs can too.

  1. Love that party in the back. It's so cute. Happy Labor Day!

    I've been loving these too. I just bought the Parkside Pullover that's very similar in style. I'm looking forward to wearing it! You look super cute-enjoy your long weekend. :)

  3. Super cute! Love stipes and lace together... and the red pants are to die for! Love it. And what thighs? Come are thin enough. Society sucks with their anorexic fashion-sense. To me - it's nonsense. Have a great weekend!

  4. Love it and love the red pants! I just got this top in green. I hope it holds up with hand washing. Feels very thin and delicate to me. I wasn't sure if I was going to keep it.

  5. Teefs! YAY! Your smile is so much sunnier with teefs. More teefs, please.

    And that awful thigh gap awareness was mainly pioneered by the completely sexist ass clowns over on theDirty (they call it "ITG" for "Inner Thigh Gap") as a way to put women down. As a measure of attractiveness or anything meaninful, the concept doesn't exist. I decided. Fuhgedaboudit.

  6. Because you looked so flippin' fantastic in this top I went and got one, too. In black though 'cause I'm mourning the loss of summer (;

    p.s. The last time I had a thigh gap was in Grade 2. Ha!
