Pretty Peplum

Dress: Zara (similar), Belt: Forever 21, Shoes: YSL, Bag: Chanel, Earring worn as Brooch: Vintage Chanel

 My sister just brought me this dress back from New York and I couldn't wait slip it on.
There is something to be said for a simple classic LBD...Every woman needs at least one!
Quite a departure from yesterday's post, huh?! Love changing it up chameleon style...
You know what else I love? Wearing my vintage earrings as brooches (as evidenced here and here).

Hope you all have a fab weekend!

How classy do you look! So sweet of your sister to bring the dress back for you. The yellow on your YSL shoes is definitely the icing on this lovely outfit; love that it matches your belt! And your ever changing style is one of the reasons why I love your blog so much - you're fearless!

Have a great weekend!

Peplum seems to be invading right now! Its such a pretty, feminine look! I just got back from Fall 2012 Coterie in NYC, and all of my favorite designers were deep in peplum tops, LBD's, and peplum flouce jackets... SO pretty! Love the belt and the shoe contrast... you look great!

Xo,
