That last jacket is so classy and stylish. I love it! Now I am in the best mood to go shopping and I have no money. Sigh. LOL!

Jacqueline said...

I love the photos. I have never tried out the peplum, but maybe I will. I have a big booty so the extra material could prove fatal =)

Make Do Style said...

Peplum is brilliant - it adds volume and shape when needed and conversely pars down if that's what you require. It is a wonderful cut - you can tell I like it!

BARGAIN BEX said...

I gasped at the Victoria Beckham while scrolling down all the fabulous looks.

Ethereal yet structured.

Brilliant.

shopinchic said...

I like the Mango dress with shoulder pads~ Except I'd remove the shoulder pads.

Fabulous post!

Tiffany said...

ahh! i love that stripped dress!

Brigadeiro said...

Ooh! Love me some peplum, such a cute curve-enhancing silhouette, and forgiving for those with hips (hip hip hooray)! :)

Style Crusader said...

Love the peplum shape, I have a peplum dress like that black and white one. It's so easy but looks so put together, love it

bridechic said...

I'm finding I love peplum looks but you need zero density in the hips to really pull it off. Great finds

Peter Breese said...

Awesome. Especially like the top black and white.

Kristin said...

I just got a vintage eighties sequined peplum number. I can't wait to rock it!!

Nicci said...

Modelizer said...

What's amazing is that women try to be as thin as possible these days, just to look bigger in these sort of silhouettes! Such a weird concept to me.

This look is so classy and feminine. I really like how it shapes a woman's body. Beautiful pictures you picked out, Carrie. Very inspiring.
