My First Peplum

Outfit with a peplum shirt
Seriously, this is my very first piece of clothing in this style that I own. I've seen it on others a million times and I tried on a blouse once, but I never felt the real need of owning one. Surprisingly the other day, I fell completely in love with this flowy and high-low peplum top. After I tried it on and saw that the price was fair, I immediately purchased it. I couldn't wait for the weather to turn warm to wear it. Luckily, this past Thursday the weather was around the low 70's, so I didn't hesitate to wear it for first time.


En serio, esta es la primera pieza de ropa que yo poseo en este estilo. Yo he visto millones de chicas llevando este estilo y también me lo probé un vez, pero nunca sentí la necesidad de comprarlo. Sorprendentemente el otro día, me enamoré completamente de esta blusa peplo que por cierto es muy ligera y femenina debido a su tela de encaje y corte. Después de asegurarme de la talla adecuada y precio, inmediatamente la compré y la verdad que estaba esperando por un día cálido para estrenarla.
Este Jueves fue el día perfecto porque la temperaturas se pusieron cálidas y aproveché para estrenar mi blusa. Espero que les guste el conjunto.

You probably noticed that my pictures are smaller, is because from now on I will load them this size. I don't know about you, but I personally believe there is a better appreciation of a photo or outfit when you can see it at once (not just pieces) without the need to scroll down (in laptops or smaller screens) to see the rest. Thanks to Wendy's Look Book blog for helping me realize this. You can always click in the picture to see a bigger view.

Ustedes probablemente notaron que mis fotos son mas pequeñas, es porque de ahora en adelante las voy a dejar de este tamaño. No se si ustedes están de acuerdo, pero yo personalmente pienso que cuando las fotos son mas pequeñas se puede apreciar un look mejor (y no en pedazos), sin la necesidad de bajar el cursor para ver el look. Presiona en la foto si quieres ver el look en un tamaño mas grande.

I took my Louboutin pumps to Santana Creative here in North Carolina (you can mail your shoes) to add a protective sole to the front half of my shoes (shop recommended by Christian Louboutin website) and I must say, they did a wonderful job adding an almost seamless (instagram close-up) protective rubber sole. If you are like me and wear out the front of your pumps pretty fast, I would recommend this type of work for your Louboutins or any of your precious shoes. I also took my Gianvitos there and they did a great job on them as well. I wish I knew about this place a long time ago, since I've had some not so great experiences in the re-soling or adding protective soles in my shoes in the past.

Yo llevé mis Louboutins a la zapatería de Santana Creative aquí en Carolina del Norte (pueden mandarles los zapatos por correo) para les agregaran un capa fina de hule protectora a la suela de cuero en la parte de enfrente. Este taller es recomendado por la website de Louboutin y por eso me sentí confiada en llevarlos y la verdad es que hicieron un trabajo fenomenal. Solo se la ponen en la parte de enfrente (foto en instagram), la cual es la que se gasta más al caminar con tacones altos. También les lleve mis tacones Gianvito Rossi los cuales le hicieron un buen trabajo. Yo les recomiendo este tipo de acabado en sus zapatos finos y principalmente si ustedes son como yo que los gasto rápido en la parte de enfrente.

    1. Thanks Brittney! I really like the flowy feel of this top, too bad they don't have it in black.

  2. You have the most incredible legs, dear!!
    And I really like this style on you and paired with your leather skirt and heels it doesn't look girly but feminine.

    Your photo size is great, mine are 600px wide and in general I like big photos and find sizes between 500 and 700px ideal.

    Have a lovely weekend,

  11. This peplum top looks great on you! I'm so jealous it is 70s there. I was excited we hit high 30s in Chicago haha. Unfortunately, it will be cold again!

  12. I am also not a big fan of peplum (for myself - though it looks great on many other women!), but this one is sooo lovely! I love the pattern, and the loose fit of this item. Looks great on you! And what a gorgeous weather you have - enjoy!!

    1. Thanks Natalia! I liked it because of the easy and flowy fit and besides I am a huge fan of lace. Now, I wish they had this top in black.

  13. Lace seems to be very in this spring! I like the easy going sleeves on your peplum top too. Really pretty! I hadn't thought about picture size before. I did love your large photos as much as this size today.
