My First Experience with Peplum : )

 At first when I saw this peplum craze taking off, I couldn't help but wonder why anyone would want to add extra fabric to their hips and make them look even bigger than they already do!! But then I saw so many fellow bloggers rock out the peplum trend, and look so classic and effortlessly chic. Needless to say my interest grew until eventually I had a LBPD (little black peplum dress) hanging in my closet! (and yes I just coined that term!!) And here is the result of that look -- and great outfit for work!
Outfit Details:
Black Peplum Dress: Target -- Blazer: Target -- Bubble Necklace: J.Crew (gift from D)
Belt: Old Navy -- Watch: Michael Kors -- Wedge Heels: Tory Burch
And of course another self-mani -- this time getting more comfortable to actually try a darker shade (because let's face it, the darker colors show your mistakes so much more that a light color does!!)
Again, this might not look like much to the skilled nail painter, but to me this is another victory for me and my wallet! : )
This is OPI in Manicurist of Seville.

Hope you have all a lovely day!

  12. What a great find at Target. I feel the same way about peplum but I guess they are all made differently. Finding the perfect flare really enhances what was given to us. You look fab!

  29. What a cute little dress! Who would have known it came from Target? I, too, am a self-manicurist. I get lots of practice since my nail polish peels off in the shower.
