There's something about peplum that makes me instantly happy...peppy :)
Lucky for me, it's all over the Spring runways and the streets!

what do y'all think?

I must say, I'm a bit afraid it's going to accentuate places I'd rather not draw attention to!
I'm loving it so much though, I gotta give it a shot
I'll report back!

Those dresses and skirts are adorable, especially in those bright colors! I think this trend is one I'm going to hop on board with :)

That purple peplum dress is amazing. I think there is something so housewife but high fashion about this trend and I'm just loving it!

I really love peplum but don't think I could pull it off. I think my hips would look huge, but maybe I will eventually try it.

I actually though peplum woudn't be very flattering on me but I tried on a dress {Milly dress} with peplum and it is surprisingly very forgiving and flattering. Like anything else, it has to be made well! xx

I well remember the peplum from early 90's. Styles really do come around again!

I think that I have loved peplum for a long time but had no idea that it was called peplum... LOl!!! I love this trend & think it's fun!! It definitely does seem to draw a little extra attention to the behind which on me is probably not where I need to draw attention to since I got a big booty haha... but I still rock it! :)

Oooh & now I am very curious about the encouragement people were giving you yesterday... going to go check out now...

Peplum is one of those things that make fashion so much fun. You can't just wear peplum - you have to find the right one for you, then wear it with the right thing and at the right time. It took me a long time to find something that worked for me, but it was really, really worth it :)
