PURPLE & PEPLUM


was very saddened with the fit of this top! The minty color and detailed studs around the neckline was what caught my attention! I stalked it for months online, finally purchasing at sale price and only to be disappointed! I love the peplum trend, it seemed flattering on every body type, it exudes chicness, and I've been wanting to own a peplum piece myself!  


 Yes I changed my hair! I was not here for that curly do! LOL nuh uh!!!

Wearing; Zara top, F21 jeans, VV thrifted belt, LV bag, Aldo heels, MAC Up the Amp lipstick

However I was so wrong! This trend didn't work for me at all, I came to conclusion that the peplum trend works good for people that are less hippier! The peplum is to give the illusion of hips. If you're more on the leaner side, then peplum is your best friend! However I've seen curvier and hippier women rock the peplum trend and it looks amazing on them! I'm not knocking the trend but I do know that I will not be caught dead in another peplum piece! But I will continue to swoon over other bloggers wearing it! 

finished this look with my coloured jeans, nude t-straps and minimum jewellery! The days are getting hotter and dressing appropriately for the weather is key! Lately I've been wearing shorts and sheer tops to keep cool! 



Hope everyone is enjoying their start of the week thus far! Talk to you soon! 
xoxo TY

P.S I will be putting this top up for sale for anyone interested email me! I will be doing a post on it pretty soon!

  1. I actually like the top on you! You have height which balances the cut of the top. The colour is amazing as well!

    1. Thanks lala but I actually had to fold the peplum part to make it shorter, maybe thats why the fit appears to be spot on however its really not! But oh well! Thanks for the love babe!

  2. Girl, what are you talking about? This top looks cute on you. I'm not sure if you wanted it to be a bit more fitted but regardless, I think it looks great and the color is fabulous on you.

    I am a lot thicker than you...lol...and I have rocked the peplum myself. Maybe you could try it without the pleats? I find the plain, cotton or rayon versions to be more flattering for myself. Also, LOVE the entire outfit. The heels are fabulous!

    1. You guys think I'm trippin huh? No any tighter and I would pop right out of it! lol but the fit really didn't do it for me! But like you said maybe the cotton or rayon versions maybe would be more flattering for my body type! so with that in mind I will try looking for one before I completely give up on peplum! Thanks for the advice!

      xoxo TY

    1. Now you think i'm loosing my mind too? LOL girl i'm tellin you the fit is not right! But you are right about one thing Asos just might be the place for the perfect peplum piece! I've seen a few bloggers wear the Asos version and its so flattering on! I guess i'm back on a hunt!

    1. Thanks Corie! are you kidding me? I hated the fit of this top! so I guess you can count me in! And why cant you wear peplum and not look good in it? maybe you just had a bad experience like I did! LOL I still say however that the trend is just NOT for me!

  31. I got this same top : and complained bitterly about it !I guess we are on the same page concerning the fit! If Zara had only made the zip at the back longer! Getting in and out of it takes time,and that fit again ! Urrrrggghhh ! Peplum really is nice though, you can always get another one *wink*
