I love color! And I love crazy prints. It makes me happy when people are not afraid to wear bold patterns and quirky designs, so when I saw this perky tie-dyed palm crop top I knew I had to snag it! The story gets better when I found out the store, Barefoot Belle carefully curates ethical fashion from around the world. Their mantra, “fashion to feel good about” plays both from their comfy happy designs to how each of their products are made. Their line of criteria falls on a list from using vintage, recycled & up-cycled products to using eco-friendly materials, to utilizing the production of small quantities.
My jungle crop top was hand sewn by female entrepreneurs in Ghana using 100% batik cotton. I love to support businesses that support philanthropic causes. It gives us as the consumer a chance to pay for something that helps a fantastic cause, and allows us feel good about our choice to buy ethically. Not to mention, it sparks a great conversation with friends because frankly, your clothing has an awesome story to tell!
The top has an exposed zipper that runs along the back with a soft baby blue lining. I’m a big fan of high necklines and I thought the cut would look nice with some bold jewelry, so I paired it with this funky drip-like silver necklace I found at a thrift shop for $10. On a side note, I’m happy I found a top that matches this tricky sea blue skirt I’ve had for years. I have finally been able to style it!
