I apologize for my long absence. We returned from selling our wares at Megacon early last week, so life has mainly been about playing catchup.
I know I am super late to the Oscars fashion party, but I have to discuss the peplum dresses spotted on the red carpet. My favorite dresses of the night belonged to Michelle Williams and Tina Fey.
Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton
Tina Fey in custom Carolina Herrera
Michelle's dress was jaw dropping in my opinion. I adored the color, the fabric, and the little details of the bow pin and pink clutch. Tina's look was rich and sophisticated, and looked stunning on her. What do both of these dresses have in common? They are both peplum style gowns!
I have never been a fan of peplum styles. I was under the impression that they gave women a bulky, hip-y appearance. I was hesitant about trying out this look, but decided to take the plunge a few weeks ago and try this Torrid skirt. Boy was a wrong about peplum!
Cardigan and Tank: Mossimo
Sweater Clip: Vintage
Necklace & Hair Flower: Lola's Lovelies
I love this skirt immensely! It is flattering, highwaisted, and one where you can tuck in form fitting blouses. But....I must say that I am not proud of the quality of these photos! The only decent one is the first, which Aron took with my IPHONE. I have been saying this for a while now, but I will be investing in a decent camera...soon. I need to save up a bit longer, but it will happen. I've heard the Cannon Rebel is a good one. Any thoughts?
The day I wore this outfit I had lunch with Aron at Chili's. It was an emotionally draining day, but it felt good to get dressed up and spend time with my sweet husband. I also stopped off at Ross for a bit of shopping. I found 2 Betseyville bags, both for a third of the retail price! I adore roomy, crossybody bags. My other leopard Betseyville has seen better days, so I thought it was time to replace her.
I need to add a disclaimer to my purchase postings. I am a big time bargain shopper, I refuse to pay retail for most things. So it might look like I am breaking the bank at time, but trust me, I am not. Still, I guess I should have put this money towards a new camera, huh?
I hope you are all enjoying your Thursday!
