Floral peplum


Details : Top : Fashion Express | Skirt : Truworths | Shoes : Legit | Watch : Tempo

I've been looking for another peplum top for a while. I've seen some here and there, but either the fabric was not quite right or the price was way too much. This weekend we headed off for the mall as Courteney had birthday she wanted to spend. I had a few errands to run myself, so we combined. We trawled the stores, her looking for what she had in mind and me looking for what I had in mind, namely a peplum top. 
I eventually found this top in Fashion Express. I was initially not too sure about the loud floral print (or grannys curtain material as G-man calls these types of prints) but the colours really appeal to me. Part of me was nervous as I often think that floral can be ageing, but overall, I don't feel too old in this.  I'm hunting for a few more and think I need to head to Eastgate, Melrose Arch or Sandton in this effort.

Whats your thoughts on my outfit?  I must admit, I did feel great it this and give it about a 7/10, maybe even an 8.

Leave me your thoughts, I love hearing from you sweet bloggy people.

  1. I love peplum tops and dresses. I want one but haven't gotten one yet because I have a pear shape and I feel like it might make me look way too bottom heavy.

    1. Hi Dani,

      I'm a pear as well ... hope that will let you relook at peplums, I think they're really flattering.

  2. I love the floral peplum top and think the cut of this particular top is extremely flattering on you. And the red skirt with it is just perfect!
