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)
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?
