Hello, Happy Friday!
It’s a Peplum Rally!
I am still chasing peplum’s for Spring/Summer ’12. I think they’re really feminine without being remotely girly. As far as I know, the peplum is introduced into fashion in the late 1800’s and later re-introduced in the 1940’s. As with many aspects of women’s fashion then, modifications are made to clothes to change the otherwise very slim female silhouette, i.e. peplums gave women shape at the hips.
I’m wearing this F21 one with a simple, Prada silk shift to balance out the frill on the skirt. Mis-matched accessories give me two ways to add colour – the snake-skin clutch is vintage and the pink suede pumps are Carvela, KG.
