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?

    I love the peplum trend BUT I’m not so sure about it on ME. Between my curvy hips and my curvy chest I just am not so sure….

  3. September 12, 2012 / 6:17 pm

    love the shirt and shoes! don’t know if i would look good in the leather skirt though 🙁

  4. September 12, 2012 / 6:24 pm

    I love this look!! 😀 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).

  5. September 12, 2012 / 6:57 pm

    I love the combination of lace and edgy leather, perfect!

  6. September 12, 2012 / 6:57 pm

    Love this. You look hot! Love peplum and I’m already eyeing a leather skirt from The Limited.

  7. September 12, 2012 / 7:06 pm

    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.

  8. September 12, 2012 / 8:01 pm

    I love your peplum top!

  9. September 12, 2012 / 8:19 pm

    Those shoes are worth breaking the rules for! I haven’t tried the peplum, but it looks great on you and so many other bloggers.

  10. September 12, 2012 / 8:37 pm

    Um. Sandy. I NEED THIS OUTFIT IN MY LIFE. Yeah, that’s my screaming. You know how much I LOVE peplums. I have yet to own a lace one. I totally need this one. I love how you paired it with a leather pencil skirt. 🙂

    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.

    I used to know how to play the piano. I think it was easier to learn by the letter method, and then by the music notes method. Then again, it was a long time ago. Now, I can still play some things. I used to be able to hula hoop for a while as well, but I was in dance. It helps if you can jump rope, balance yourself on one foot, etc. Did you ever have a Skip It? I don’t know if that helps, but it was a bit similar to hula hooping… :p

    I’d like to learn to crochet. I used to know how as well, but I kept forgetting over the years. My grandmother is teaching me again, though, so perhaps I’ll learn how again! This time, I’ll hopefully keep the skill. 🙂 I’d also like to continue learning web design, and someday I hope to have some sort of a knack for graphic design.

    I hope that you do eventually get to learn these! Good luck!

    It is the most delicate of the black teas, and it is usually described at floral and astringent. I don’t know about all that, I just really like the flavor. Twinings makes decent one, but if you can find good loose leaf Darjeeling, that is much better. It brews a lovely sort of light amber color.paint by number for adults

    My one tip for “adulting” (something I personally struggle with) is to make sure you’re on top of everything you involve yourself in. For example, I have penpals to write to, job-hunting to do, a cat to de-flea, books to read, money to save… So to make my life easier and less stressful I try to keep on top of things by marking the calendar, writing endless lists and leaving myself post-its. I think I have a visual memory, so making a pile of all the books I want to read and leaving them next to my bed is a constant visual reminder.sell my house fast maryland

    What wonderful memories and pictures for your family! Growing up my grandparents had a place on Crystal Lake and then Lake Michigan, both in northern Michigan. I loved running the dunes along Lake Michigan! We have a cabin in Twin Lakes, Colorado and the cold, clear water reminds me of northern Michigan, although it is actually colder (48 degrees on Memorial Day) so we do more wading than swimming. We like to drive the boat to deserted beaches and enjoy picnics and playing in the sand. The cold water scares most boaters away (and the lake is surrounded by national forest, so no houses directly on the lake), so often we are the only ones out there! There are some warmer reservoirs in southern Colorado that are better for swimming and not quite.Condominio 221
