outfit post | peplum rally

If you caught yesterday’s post, then you were able to get a sneak peek of what I wore during a recent photo shoot with Kansas City Portrait Photographer Denene Brox.

Denene and I met up recently to shoot around the Country Club Plaza. I had just come from work, and managed to survive the whole day in my fancy-schmancy outfit featuring my favorite wardrobe additions of the season: a peplum top + vintage silver cuffs!

Peplum is one of those trends that you have to be careful with — if you have curves, pair peplum with straight bottoms (like a pencil skirt) to keep the volume around your hips to a minimum.

I had fun with this outfit’s textures; everyone should have a pair of lacy, lace-up booties in their wardrobe to go with a feminine and sweet lace skirt!

I managed to snag the cuffs (three total — wearing two on the left and one on the right) during Savers’ VIP shopping event a few weeks back. I eyed every piece in the vintage jewelry cases about three times before deciding on these sterling silver steals — each cuff was priced at less than $12!

(Side note: Savers generously offered me a shopping stipend during its Shawnee, Kansas, grand opening VIP preview — you can see the other steals I found here, here and here!}

And somehow I was able to rock these shoes the entire day.

Have you rocked the peplum trend? And what’s your thrift/vintage shopping strategy? Tell me your thoughts in the comments section!

    i’m wearing peplum today! such an easy look (plus hides the extra bit around my waist – haha)

    haven’t really got a thrift/vintage shopping strategy but i tend to visit shops in trendier areas as they have better stock
