Crop town girl

As with starting anything new, this one gives me the nerves. With the current season of the HBO show, Silicon Valley fresh on my mind, I kind of feel like Erlich Bachman today. Only, I don’t know if I’m looking at AVIANTO or Pied Piper (let’s say AVIANTO for the moment).

I’m very pleased that codeDressed is finally live. I have been working on creating this website for a while now, putting content together, tumbling and stubbing my toe through pieces of CSSΒ code as I do so. I hope you like the content here, and would love to hear your thoughts on anything here;Β the clothes, the website, the pictures, or maybe even the premise of the blog and any similar stories you have to share around it.

I am putting together a spring/summer outfit in this post. I love crop tops, and personally feel they are a blessing for petite frames like mine. I’d have loved to have had longer legs, but since limb enhancement isn’t for all (read, for anyone), a visual illusion will have to do. Crop tops serve a great purpose here making you appear naturally longer in the torso, by giving you a cutoff line on your midriff. I personally like to keep it chic by showing only a hint of skin, but one can choose to go higher/blend in with whatever looks good on one’s frame.

With my vested interests around crop tops, I thought it’s only apt that this is be the first post. I am pairing a stretch fit crop top by J.O.A (currently on sale – link below) with a pair of Tehya printed shorts (also on sale :D). I love the vibrant colors and patterns of these shorts and they are really breathable, well suited for the summer/spring – I’m in San Diego, the place of eternal summer :). These shorts are from KAS New York. I love the KAS collection, a unique blend of urban clothing inspired by bohemian designs. I am carrying a Tory Burch clutch here that can also be alternated as a cross body bag.

Do check out the links to the outfit and the shoes below, and let me know if you’ve anything to say in the comments section below.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to
    come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to
    create your theme? Great work!
