Peplum Love : Part 3

For my last 'Peplum Love' post I went for a colour combination that has always been a favourite, and one that you can't go wrong with-   Black, White and Red.

Although the rain and weather in Bangalore hasn't been suede-friendly, I couldn't resist pairing these red shoes with my black peplum top and cream lace skirt. 

The skirt and gold cuff are from Forever 21. Whenever I have family coming to visit from the States, I usually order stuff online and ask them to carry it with them. For those of you who love a good bargain, Forever 21 ALWAYS has amazing deals and is far more affordable than a lot of stores in Bangalore.

Red Suede Heels : Zara

Gold Cuff : Forever 21

Pelum Love : Part 2

Time for some more peplum loving!

I LOVE dressing up for a Saturday night- even it is for a place like Monkey Bar.

This next outfit features two of the pieces I mentioned in my wardrobe essentials- Nude Pumps and the Lace Peplum top (something girly)

I wore this on a relaxed Saturday night at Monkey Bar with a couple of friends from college. Was I overdressed? Yes. But three Mangas later I honestly didn't care.

The peplum top was bought on sale at Forever New. I love the sales there, but I never find my size. So I found this in a size bigger, and altered it at home.

My favorite part is the back of the top with the lace bodice.

Peplum Love : Part 1

One of my favourite silhouettes is the peplum. I fell in love with it when my mother bought me a black peplum blouse from Benetton three years ago, before I knew what the peplum even was! I have quite a few  pieces in this style, and so we're going to have a week full of peplum- three outfits, all featuring the peplum!

Peplum Dress- Zara; Shoes : Zara, Necklace :  Forever New;  Watch : Fossil;  Knot Clutch : Bottega  Veneta
 This dress is extremely flattering and is versatile. It can be worn on a night out, or for an elegant brunch.

A dress of a similar style can be found here.  http:/

At 6 inches, the Zara heels are the highest I own, but the platform in the front makes sure your feet don't hurt as much as you'd think.

The shocking pink Knot Clutch adds a pop of colour to the outfit.

Since the dress is very simple, the accessories make the entire look come alive!
Lots more peplum love coming up... Stay tuned !
