Best Trends Forever – How Do You Take Your Peplum?

The peplum style has been around since the 1940s although most of us know it from the first resurgence in the 80s. Rocked as a dress or blouse, this flared or ruffled style is ultra-chic and figure-flattering which is what makes it one of our Best Trends Forever. We’ve put together two peplum looks. Tell us which one you’d wear!

Want it Wednesday – Blazer Story

Want it Wednesday

If you’re an adult female, in years if not in attitude, you should have a suit or two for business and a casual blazer or two JUST for pleasure. The blazer is so versatile and classic that it can be paired with virtually everything you own, short of your bras and underwear. Actually, we take that back, that would probably look amazing. A casual blazer with jeans and sneakers and a graphic tee is perfection. A casual blazer with a summer sundress? Sure. With shorts and wedge sandals for a BBQ? Why not? Get yourself a solid black or navy blazer and one printed blazer and you’re set for serious style. In this case, we’re seriously covering Alexander McQueen’s Patchwork blazer, but let’s be honest, its not in the credit cards. Check out some of our (more affordable) faves!
