crissed and crossed.

my sister bought this top for herself but couldn't figure out how to wear it. at mid-hip it's an awkward length for a form fitting shirt...it either needs to be a few inches shorter or a few inches longer. i jokingly told her i would take it off her hands, and she gave it to me. score. i tucked it in to solve the length issue and kept eveything else simple. i love that the straps go across the entire back and not just across the opening. it's the little oomph-worthy details like that...
