Cropped Tops and Ripped Shorts | #tcfstyleexpo #OOTD

plus denim shorts #TCFExpo ...“Shine bright like a diamond” _ Rihanna



I love to play with fashion.  My style can be described as whimsical glam.  When I first saw these Missguided jean shorts I know I had to have them.  It’s not offered that I see short ripped to this degree in plus sizes.  They were fabulous alone but I know I was bringing them to TCFExpo I wanted to add a little something something to them to make them stand out.

I went to a local fabric store and purchased a rhinestone applique.  Rhinestone appliques can be expensive however I found it to be worth it.  I hand sewed the applique to my short.  I’m not a sewer at all so believe me when I say it’s easy.  I placed the applique on one side of the shorts and cut it to fit the pattern of the ripped jeans.  I then sewed it down.  I then repeated the process on the other side of the jeans.

Who you like me to do a video on the process?  If so leave a yes in the comments!

The top I’m wearing is a from straight size section.  I chose to not wear my arms through the sleeve and wear the top as a tube top.

    I love how you paired jeans and cropped top, I love the way you shine and how confident you are. I wish you to continue being so cute and adorable in your next style lookbook <3

    I love your bold style especially when you rock crop tops. I’ve always been too self-conscious, but one day….Also, great job on the shorts. I dabble with DIY but applique is on a different level.

      Thank you so much. Start off small with crop tops. I like to pair them with Kimonos for a little cover up. The appliqué was easy. I hand sewed it to the shorts. It isn’t on there for life but it works lol
