My Peplum Style


Hello beautiful people! How was your weekend? I had a lazy weekend, which was great because I have been working most Saturdays and I forgot what it felt like to be home on a Saturday morning. Unfortunately, I slept through most of the morning and when I woke up, I was glued to my laptop…life of blogger huh! LOL 😉 Well, my “lazy” weekend did not prevent me from making one of my favorite dish Okra soup, which I shared the recipe here.


On the other hand, you might have noticed the explosion of peplums from Spring 2012 runway shows. Well, if the Spring 2012 was an indication of peplum rebirth, Fall 2012 is its continuation–this cinched waist, flared trend is here to stay–at least for now.

For me, it all started with my constant prophecy about peplum tops on my facebook and twitter, now I have finally found one of my favorite pair. This asos pair fits perfectly–so elegant and chic. I love the flared ruffle and specifically the deep navy color tone making it versatile for the upcoming fall. It is easy to embrace this trend. What better way to show off your curves, accentuate your waist and still look classy!

Love the fit and length of the polka dot pencil skirt. My friend and photographer told me that I look like a ladybug. LOL!


Outfit: Asos peplum top (here); Asos skirt (here, love this skirt here); Christian Louboutin pumps (similar here); Necklace (similar here), Express chain bracelet (similar here), Aldo bag (splurge on this here); Lipstick: MAC Rebel (here)

Here are some budget friendly peplums to try…

Have a fabulous day!

    I'm digging the more of the double peplum than the single peplum…if that makes any kind of sense. lolol. Great top and, yes, it being navy blue gives it the right touch of classiness.
