Out of everything I've ever made, I'd have to say this Swarovski crystal corset top is my favorite... 

Hands. Down. 

Not to mention, I got another one up my sleeve in different color scheme. 😈
I love how fabulously comfortable it is. And I've come to realize, meshing the best of both worlds is my thing.

Feminine with masculine. Chic with comfortable. Rough but soft. Salt and pepper. Yin and yang. 

You get what I'm sayin'!?

Started with a Miss Pap loungewear top and applied over 4,200 Swarovski crystals to it - laborious, I know. But, worth it. 
It's quite the showstopper and feel it can be worn to various occasions depending on how you style it. 

This crystal corset top is something I like to wear on those days when the weather can't decide what season it is. You know when it's a tad bit chilly - but there's a warm undertone to the day. Shoulder out, but arms covered on some 'no goosebumps around these parts' type sh*t.

The inspiration for this top came from a Death by Dolls crystal corset I saw on Instagram - probably where a good chunk of my inspiration comes from, I can spend hours going down that black hole called Instagram. Anyways, Death by Dolls in general has a very dramatic vibe to it, especially that crystal fringe jacket! I'm so here for it. 

I don't think I will be doing a design-it-yourself (DIY) post for this top, it's pretty straight forward to be honest with you. With this piece, it wasn't about how I did it or the skill it took. More so the right supplies and patience to see it through.

As far as styling the outfit, I went the usual route. Simple. The piece stood out enough that a pair of jeans and some basic strappy heeled sandals (also from Miss Pap) to add to match the top. You can tell I was really diggin' pink with this look. Okay...maybe a bit obsessed.

You're probably wondering why the heck I would do something like this to such a basic top, I'll tell you why... because I wanted to mix it up. A refreshing spin on casual glam to make things a little more interesting (and fabulous).
