A little pep.

For those who don't know still in Chicago and I did go downtown and bought a few things. They have amazing stores! Im talking Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Ralph Lauren, Zara, and I can literally keep going! Its so amazing, but I did my normal stops at H&M , Forever 21, and Zara. 

Though today my post is about a recent trend that im in love with. PEPLUM. I don't think many people would consider it a trend, but I do see a lot of bloggers wearing it, seen it down the runway, and in stores. I love it. I think its so feminine and so different. I actually had started sewing a few peplum skirts before I considered it a trend saw it around. Here's a few of my favorites shops that are carrying it and the pieces that I love.

ASOS : Peplum Dress
River Island : Peplum top
      Zara : Peplum Dress
My Design: Peplum Skirt
So let me know, what you guys think of the trend?
Do you like it? How long do you think it'll last?

Btw, I will try and upload outfit posts soon , been to busy with the city that there's no sun when I try, and im hoping to get Ana back on here as soon as I get back! , XOXO RAFAEL.


  1. Love peplums, especially your skirt!

  3. Looove the peplum trend! I've always loved it, and I think the peplum trend will probably last until fall 2012. :)
    I looove that cute river island top, and love the asos peplum dress ♥ Love the peplum skirt you made, my twin was like, "oh wow" When I told her you made it. :D

    To your reply, "do you think later on you'll take design classes?!" Yea for sure, I'd def. want too! I'm first gonna take painting classes my first semester @ the uni, and next semester I'd love to at least take one fashion coarse. :/
    I have a question, just wondering, for how long have you been sewing? Cause you seem pretty good. :)


  4. I ove your design!!

  8. this post makes me want to purchase peplum clothes! nice post!

    It’s a GIRL Thing

  9. I don't like this trend. Simply because it's only good for models. People like me who are a bit bigger (and there's nothing wrong with that ;p) just don't look good in tops, skirts and dresses like that! I think this is just a trend that won't last too long...But yes I do like it on very thin people :)

  10. LOVE peplum. I don't think I could pull it off though. Love the red skirt on you.
