Default Christina: Second Torrid series

How nice to see Christina back for a second seasonal Torrid series. She shows off a number of items that I think are very pretty.

I especially like this floral-print top - cute and sweet:

This gold top has a flattering cut at the bust:

One more - a stripe top:

You can see more in the "tops" section of the Torrid site.

Here are the other three items so far (although my favorite is the floral-print top as well); a kimono-style top with an attractive sleeve design:

An Apple Bottoms top in an interesting and unexpeced colour:

and a grey "school style" sweater:

I wonder if there will be any "lifestyle" pictures of Christina this time too?

Here is Christina in that appealing floral print:

It's easy to see why this item is so popular. The print has an enchantingly vintage quality to it. This is a highly traditional feminine design--unabasedly Old World, gloriously so--and yet on a curvy figure like Christina's, it also becomes highly sensual. The crocheted ruffle trim around the neckline adds to the rustic quality of the look. It's as if a garment from the 19th century were adapted, very successfully, for the present day.

Note the detail on the hem at the bottom--another vintage touch. This top would go even better with a skirt, but nevertheless, it plays up the attractively unmodern aspects of Christina's look, adding to her beauty. Torrid seldom gives her vintage-style items such as this to model, which is a shame, because she exhibits the garment perfectly. It's as if the piece were made just for her. The item begs for an outdoor editorial shoot in a natural, rustic setting.
