I have said it before and I will say it again: I am blessed with awesome friends. The kind of friends that hear about my little project, understand and respect my “rules” and then give me clothes because that classifies as second-hand. And that is how I came to have a 100% free 100% silk Banana Republic silk peplum top.
I have been gobbling up the peplum posts including this one yesterday from Real Girl Glam. I think “peplum” is on a spectrum. (These are words from day job spilling into my hobby.) Long, short, belted, on shirts, on dresses – peplums are every way, everywhere. I’m old enough to stay away from the 80’s looking peplum (for now at least, considering I once said I’d never wear jeggings) but I still wanted to partake of this trend and have been keeping my eye out for one at VV Boutique. No luck. Then, my favourite Megan offered this one – with feminine ruffles and a non-80s peplum vibe.
My work schedule today involved straight-up consultation instead of the usual paint, floor time and boogers, which meant that I could wear a silk blouse without it being a disposable silk blouse!
I have mentioned on Twitter that I have a serious pants crisis. My work pants are bad and believe it or not, these are the best of the bunch. However, they are wide-legged and drapey so I decided they were “classic”. There is a 30% off sale at VV Boutique tomorrow so I plan to go hunting after dinner.
I thought of this scarf when I read Everyday Mom Style’s “10 Fall Trends.” It is a bulky, patterned yet neutral-ish scarf! Aren’t I trendy?
Okay, I admit that’s total baloney. I just didn’t have another jacket that would work, so denim it was. But I acted chic and that’s all that counts.
Thank you Megan and Megan’s mom (the peplum is actually third-hand!) for your generosity – that is true style!
