pep in your step

peplums. remember leifsdottir's honeyed peplum skirt from years back?

here's a reminder:

so great. love the mustard color and the big buttons.

a little tricky to pull off, but if the fit is right - they can be pretty flattering for a gal.

for example, these ladies rocked it:
tara b at little girl big closet
amy k at kelinda kelinda
dea at the dea diaries

i never purchased. sad sad.

BUT a couple weeks ago i (finally) ended up wearing a peplum of my own. granted it was a top, but nevertheless, it was the perfect top to compliment the flare in the skirt.
