I LOVE this top, in fact I’m planning on heading back over to the fabric store this weekend to buy more sheers to make more of these tops…for myself. I was inspired by all these cute, flowy sheer patterned tops I keep seeing around. I wanted to make it as simple as possible, therefore the tapered rectangle top was made.
Seven blocks from my apartment there is an awesome antique market that is full of old authentic Chinese artifacts and of course the fake stuff made to look authentic, which I didn’t mind because it was all eye candy to me. Seriously, I wanted (didn’t need) all of it. There was cute tin cans from the 70s, creepy plastic dolls and figurines, cameras from who knows when, suitcases, furniture, guitars and trumpets, paintings/scrolls, tea sets, rustic looking cars and planes, old coins, lamps, jewelry (oooooooh the jewelry..divine) and so much more. We strolled up and down the 4 blocks full of little dusty antique shops and almost came away with a cute necklace watch (the lady wouldn’t haggle down to my price, I’m quite the stickler). Anyway, I was pulling sleeping Beck behind me in hopes to make him more comfortable in his stroller – so he will sleep longer – so I can peruse just a little bit longer. I wasn’t 100% successful with that. But, he ended up liking all the random things too. I can’t wait to go again!
Sorry for the picture overload!

You better believe I’m buying one of those watches before I leave Shanghai
