Rule Breaker

Sunday, July 29, 2012

When I was younger, I was terrified of getting in trouble. I was a smarty pants at home, but when I went to school I was always on the straight and narrow. I got sent to the principal's office in second grade for playing "mercy" with a little boy in my class; I immediately started crying. I have never been in any sort of trouble, be it in school or with the law... I guess I'm kind of boring. As for fashion however, I do like to push the envelope sometimes. I'm not as eccentric Alexander McQueen or Christian Dior (I'd love to be, but I'm not sure it's in me). Instead of being blatantly naughty, I like to keep subtle secrets, Like that time I wore a Victoria's Secret nighty as a dress, or like today, where I've used a tankini as a top... ;)

I saw this super cute swimsuit top, and thought what a bummer it had to be limited to the water. I then thought I could do so much more with it! I decided to treat this tankini as a bustier, and I love the outcome! What do you think? Did I pull one over on you?
