Yes, you read that correctly… my top is from Abercrombie & Fitch. And no, it isn’t one of those things I’ve had in my closet for years, I recently purchased it – no judgments please 🙂 I was helping my 11-year-old cousin buy some clothes for our recent vacation and we went into A&F. Don’t worry y’all, it still smells the same, music pounding at a deafening beat and the employees act like they can’t be bothered. Of course as Sarah was perusing, a few things caught my eye like this little top. So easy-breezy and the funniest part about it is, I received more compliments on this top in one day than I sometimes receive in a month.
It was hilarious seeing the faces, and hearing the reactions, of gals who commented on it, and I told them where it was from. Trust me ladies, I was as floored as you were that a) I willingly went into A&F at age 23; b) I found something that wasn’t xxxxxxx-small; and c) it’s actually… really cute and on trend. So judge as you may, but I was rather thrilled with this sale purchase and completely okay with the fact that it was from A&F… I mean I can always just smile at a compliment and say, “thanks!”, right? If you can’t bring yourself to venture back into Abercrombie and relive your tween memories, I’ve picked some similar looks to shop below!
