Peplum, Lace, and Leather

Top: Modcloth {similar} | Skirt: Forever 21 | Shoes: Zara | Necklace: Forever 21 | Bracelet: Oia Jules

I hope I’m not breaking fashion blogger rules by wearing the same shoes twice in one week.  But when you are obsessed with a shoe, you can’t help but wear it.  I have a lot of shoes that fit that category actually.  I wore this outfit for the Kansas City Fashion Week Friday event and it’s seriously one of my fave outfits as of late.  I love that it’s got some femininity in the lace and peplum mixed with the edginess of the leather.  And even better is that I scored the (faux) leather skirt in a Buy 1, Get 1 free Forever 21 sale.  So in case the leather trend passes by too quickly, at least I didn’t spend too much on it.  ;)

Thanks AGAIN to Chasing Davies for snapping these pics for me!

P.S. Have you voted for my cutie pie Austin today?  We’d love your vote EVERY DAY! :)

What are your thoughts on the peplum trend?  How about the leather trend?

  1. I love this look!! :-D You look great.

    I haven’t delved into the peplum trend myself because I have a long sized torso and the ‘waist’ on those hits me at a really odd spot.

    I would totally jump on the leather trend, I just haven’t found a piece that calls to me yet (while coinciding with spare funds).

  2. I feel like EVERYONE is rocking the peplum trend these days and of all the tops I’ve seen so far, i absolutely LOVtE this lace one the best!! It fits you sooo well and looks stunning with the fitted skirt.

  3. I have yet to own either! but they look great in this outfit! and those shoes are hot! you should be wearing them at least twice a week. :)

  4. This is genius – I have been wanting to add a leather piece to my wardrobe for fall but was afraid it’s too edgy for me. I love the idea of pairing a leather skirt with the peplum, it totally makes it feel more feminine. So pretty! And I am a peplum lover, I love how it’s flattering on everyone regardless of body shape.


  5. I LOVE your makeup in these pictures! You look so beautiful. And gahh that top is fabulous! I’m loving lace lately!

  6. One of my fav outfits of late too! I just adore that peplum, perfect texture of lace and perfect neckline…plus it’s a great mix with leather. You know how to style yourself so beautifully…I def don’t mind seeing those fab heels again.

  7. Obsessed, Sandy. Love peplum (in flattering ways like this) along with leather. And, the photo of you kind of delivishly/sweetly looking up? GORGEOUS.

  8. ok this outfit is pure genius. I love the soft femininity of the lace peplum, against the bold dark contrast of the black leather skirt. I am seriously dying over your top. I am in search of the Perfect peplum top at the moment- that’s my favorite recycled trend!
