Peppy in Peplum

Peplum is one of the major trends this spring that I am most excited about! One of the things that makes peplum so fantastic is that it looks amazing on everyone!  Peplum is flattering for all body types and gives the illusion of the perfect hour glass figure.  The strong silhouette gives you a teeny waist and 1920s pin up girl hips, an unbeatable combination.  Peplum has been on the rise for a while, but this spring it will hit its peak.  If you don’t already own something peplum do yourself a favor and invest in this covetable trend, trust me you will thank me!

I went for a fuller look with this ensemble, but peplum is also incredible with skinnies or a pencil skirt.

Brocade with love

This week is all about love and as I said before, I am in love with brocade! I love brocade’s incredible ornate detailing, the audacious color combinations, and unique fabrics.  Brocade is like elaborately decorated armor that helps you dazzle your way through the day and when it comes to brocade the bolder the better, which makes me love it even more! I love mixing prints and highly recommend this with brocade, but if you are feeling a little timid pair brocade with a neutral color and of course, always mix textures!

Brocade with love

This Valentine’s Day (like all other Valentine’s Days) I will be rocking the red.  As I’m sure you have noticed by now, I love getting dressed up for special occasions (and really everything in between) and Valentine’s Day is no exception.  This V-day I am rocking a long sleeve fitted brocade dress in red and black.  Brocade is one of my favorite trends and is so incredible, 1) because it has the ability to give the illusion of the perfect figure and 2) because the workmanship is so intricate and delicate there is no way not to fall in love.  So this Valentine’s Day embrace the red and throw on a dress that makes you feel unstoppable and take the day by storm.
