Peplum + Stripes
Peplum dresses, skirts, and blouses have been on trend for a couple of years but lately this style is everywhere. Although I was slightly hesitant at first to add extra layers of fabric on my hips, I instantly fell in love with this dress, a combination of a peplum taffeta skirt and a normandy blue and red cotton striped top. And since the peplum and stripes are both the "pop of drama" in this outfit I kept my accessories minimal and understated. The dress is also versatile (and warm) enough to wear for a casual night out in the fall and winter. Just add a pair of boots or tights and heels and a long coat to create additional looks with the dress. I wore the dress on Monday for Lucky Magazine's fashion and beauty blogger (FABB) conference in Santa Monica.
