Oddly enough, before writing this "No Doubt's Top 10 Style Moments" feature, I was already paying homage to my childhood hero Gwen Stefani when I shot this little midriff-flashing outfit for FASHION's Style Panel on Sunday. Our task this week was to show how to style treated/printed denim or how to give pre-existing denim a fresh update (I picked the latter), but I like to think now that it all happened so that I could give a nod to my 11-year-old self, the obnoxiously loud girl who was quite literally obsessed with Gwen Stefani and played Tragic Kingdom maybe five gazillion times. The trend (not that I was really aware of "trends" back then) that I stole most from her back then were crop tops - I had a whole collection. Don't know why my parents let me wear them but they're '90s-tastic in the very best way and since they're having a bit of a resurgence right now, I'm going to go ahead and embrace them once again.
I can't believe it's Wednesday let alone July 18 now! This summer is going to be all gone before I know it and I won't have gotten to all the things that were on my bucket list (go to the amateur gay strip bar near us, S.U.P. in Lake Ontario, go to Niagara Falls). Is anyone else having this time-on-fast-forward problem right now too?
Happy hump day everyone :)
