As much as I love the brand Drop Dead, its clothes are usually out of my price range, and I’m sure many of my readers can relate to that! Unfortunately as an unemployed student it’s extremely difficult for me to splash out on clothes from independent brands such as Drop Dead. That’s why I always make the most of flash sales, such as the sale Drop Dead held the weekend before last.
I was super tempted to pick up a pair of their Peace Walker Boots, which I absolutely adore, but unfortunately there wasn’t quite enough knocked off the price for me to be able to consider them. Instead, fuelled by my new love of crop tops, I picked up the Fangz Crop Shirt for the reasonable price of £24 (+ shipping).
I was surprised by how baggy the top was, actually; Drop Dead tends to run small, especially in women’s clothing, so I expected the size 12 Fangz top to fit a little more snugly. It’s not too baggy to put me off wearing it, though!
I really love this top: the detail of the embroidered fangs is a really nice feature. The collar is reinforced, which means it won’t end up crumpled and misshapen in the wash. I also like the sleeves being a little longer, almost elbow length – they help protect the world from seeing my flabby upper arms.
I wore this top out for my friend’s birthday on Friday night, and paired it with denim shorts and black heeled boots. However, it could also easily be worn as part of a casual outfit. If I was wearing the Fangz Crop Shirt to uni I’d pair it with high waisted jeans, a chunky cardigan and ankle boots. It’s (gradually) starting to get warmer now, so when the sun does eventually decide to come out I can see myself wearing this shirt to the beach over a swimming costume with my favourite sunglasses.
Once again, Drop Dead hasn’t failed to impress me. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for their next sale, and who knows, maybe some day I’ll be able to afford the Peace Walker Boots!
