Hello friends….my apologies for being away so long from the blog.
December has been a busy one – and I haven’t been very good about documenting my outfits of the day.
I did however, manage to capture this one – a quick and easy combo I put together of black and navy.
I’ve been trying to curb my unnecessary shopping – as Xmas expenses are taking over my wallet this month.
These are new-to-me pieces….
The top, necklace and leopard Keds was bought ON SALE for cheapy cheapy.
And the peplum skirt was found on a via online plus-size swap Facebook group (#win)!
Peplum is defined by The Free Dictionary as “a short overskirt or ruffle attached at the waistline of a jacket, blouse, or dress.”
The peplum design has been around forever and was a big fashion statement in the 1940s. And if you’ve been following the blog, you already know I’ve got a soft spot for vintage fashions of that era.
But this peplum look has it suddenly made its way back into mainstream fashion for a few years now.
It’s essentially a fashion optical illusion – all geared towards making your waist look slimmer – to achieve that coveted hour-glass shape.
But this was my first peplum skirt!
What do you think of the peplum trend? How have you made it work?
Tell me about it in the comments section below 🙂
