So, I’ve gotta brag about this top for a minute….It’s my first peplum top EVER (I know, right, where have I been??), and it’s eyelet lace. Oh, and hot pink. And now I want to buy every peplum top in sight (don’t worry, Hubby, I haven’t done that…yet) because they are seriously uber flattering, and there is something so girly and flirty about a peplum top! Peplum tops are amazing at having a slenderizing effect on your silhouette, especially if you’re uncomfortable with the extra love around your middle, or if your hips tend to be on the wide side. The peplum cinches in at the middle and gives the look of having a tiny waist and then flairs beautifully hide your tummy. Great for days when you’re feeling bloated! 😀 Or if you’re on the opposite side of the spectrum with no curves, a peplum top is a GREAT way to give the illusion of having that fem-fabusch figure!
What can I say, I hopped on the peplum train a little late, but I’m riding it all the way to Happy Town because I am seriously IN LOVE with it!!
Ok, so back to this top in particular….If you haven’t heard of or checked out The Hot Pink Hanger, then you’ve gotta check this place out, girlfriend! They have such adorable pieces at great price points, and the quality is excellent! I wore this dress to the Badgley Mischka brunch at Dillards (more deets later!), and again to a wedding, and it is seriously one of my favorite dresses! I love bright pink and blue together, and the cut is super flattering.
I have worn this pink peplum top so many times and with so many different outfits, it really goes with anything! I am a huge fan of pieces that can be worn at least three different ways because your price per wear goes down. With my Lilly skirt I can wear it to church, add a cardigan or blazer and wear it to work; I’ve worn it with seersucker shorts for lunch dates and running errands…I actually wore that outfit three days in a row because ya know, when no one you know sees you, you gotta wear it again 😀 #sorrynotsorry And for some reason, this top and Lilly really get along well!
If you do order this top, you might need to size up a size because it runs on the small size, but you won’t regret purchasing it! Don’t forget to check out The Hot Pink Hanger, too many cute things to pass up for summer 🙂
