Mark and I had a little double date adventure over the weekend with our friends Mike and Trey, going to the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival and then the Cheesecake Factory.
I had never been to the festival before, so it was a novel experience. People dressing up like it's the middle ages, watching people joust, trying ye olde wine tastings, and seeing people eating oversized drumsticks was all in good fun. (And it continues every weekend for the rest of the month, if you're local and want to check it out.)
I hope you can excuse the muddy feet. We were roughing things there a little more than I was expecting.
Anyway, back to the crop top. It's actually a little miniature sweater, and I found it at a vintage flea market, called the Neighborhood Flea, for 50 cents! I kind of picked it up for fun, but figured if I wore something high waisted with it, it would be OK. (I think Elana inspired me at some point, but I can't find the post that talks about it.) Anyway, that's what I ended up doing! A crop top and a high waisted skirt.
I felt daring, showing off a little bit of midriff skin, but I think I'd do it again if I were feeling confident enough.
Also, I know that I kinda mixed a 50s type skirt with 60s stuff, aka the sunglasses and sweater top, but I think I did OK with mixing it up a bit. Yeah? Do people even care about that kind of thing?
Have you taken any fashion "risks" lately?
