This weeks Aussie Curves theme is peplum. Peplums seems to be either hated or loved and strangely on this one I'm a fence-sitter. I just can't decide how I feel! In saying this I own 5 in varying forms, only one of which I regularly wear. So maybe that's telling. The thing with peplums is that they can, like women's shapes, vary greatly. It can actually be quite a challenge to find one that sits at the waist, is long enough, and provides the right tummy coverage. They're not a one size fits all item!

I've had this peplum for ages and this is the first time I've worn it. It's lovely but in seeing these photos I think it might be a tad long in the body for me. 

Peplum: Dream Diva
Skirt: ASOS Curve (remixed)
Cardigan: Unknown (old)
Heels: Ziera

This beautiful skirt is a very old one from ASOS that didn't fit. But I loved the print so much that I couldn't let go of it. And there was that small thought in the back of my mind that I might lose weight one day and then it'd fit. But this year I decided that was a very unhealthy way to live and I'm starting to sell things that don't fit and love myself today. But still this skirt remained. Luckily my very talented mother in law put in the black side panels and now I can do more than just look at it and sigh!

What's your thought on the peplum?


  1. I think this peplum looks great on you.
    Beautiful skirt, what a clever mummy you have :)

  2. Love the skirt. And the side panel is a bit of a look these days so well done you. the peplum is also lovely. What a great outfit

  3. taking a moment to crush on your top bun!

  4. That's great you could restyle the skirt! You look fantastic!

  5. Oh wow, I LOVE this outfit! I have the same skirt and it's just a littttle bit too tight on me, think I shall have to keep the panel idea in mind!

  6. YOU are the queen of that high bun. And that skirt is wonderful. I had to go back and check out the peplum because I was so in love with the skirt. Haha. Well done on the panel add. Nicely done.
