Pretty in Pink!!

   For quite sometime, I have been in a love/hate relationship with the peplum.  I have always wanted to try one but never made that commitment to buy out of fear.  I finally made the plunge after viewing several people around my size online in their outfits of the day posts and realizing I think that is something that would flatter me as well.  I belong to a group online that is a huge resale group for plus size women and someone was selling this lovely pink and black polka dot stretch peplum from JcPenny, the brand is Worthington and size 3x.  I am still up in the air about how I feel about the way it fits and hits me, part of it is the pictures I was a little lazy and didn't pull out the good camera.  Anyways, I love the color pink but apparently I don't wear it very often.  The jeans are Old Navy Rockstar Jeans in black.  The shoes are my trusty go to shoes from Orthaheel in black/silver.  My hair and makeup were designed by my sister Rebecca who is a hairstylist, I wanted something simple but i love the bandana look.  Overall, this was definitely not my favorite outfit, I am hoping to find a peplum that fits a little bit longer on the torso but we shall see.  Tell me what you think? Leave a comment below and let me know where you get your peplum shirts and how they fit?

Peace and Love,

P.S. It's football season...Yahoo!!

  1. Hmm, this may not be your favorite outfit, but I think you look great in something practical for day to day living. You’re dressed for your environment and your mood (I notice those are two things that can sometimes be pushed aside in the name of being fashionable) – you look comfortable and cute, so, win-win (and a bonus “win” for bandana love)! ;)
