Girl looks like a lady! THE PEPLUM SERIES

Yes, my sweet readers, I’ve been wanting to tackle this trend for a while now (I’ve been savouring this moment since September 2011). The time has come for me to devote an entire series to… wait for it… THE GODDAMN PEPLUM! You already know by now that I’m a sucker for pastels (you can seriously get a sugar high from looking at my layout), I’m mad about flowers (thanks Mom, that’s all on you. She’s a floral designer) and a leather (not black leather, I hate black) junkie. There’s something else you should know, even though I don’t always act like one, I sure like to dress-up like a lady! That’s the thing about peplums, they are ladylike, they are pretty, they are cute and they are really in trend right now. A peplum has the power of twisting any outfit, in a beautiful way. Don’t be afraid to try it, once you get the hang of this trend, you won’t be able to stop loving it. Let’s start with the runway peplums!
