Baroque Peplum

I am obsessed with all things peplum right now. I've always loved the shape on my body so I'm really loving that City Chic has so many peplum options in store right now. Not only are peplum's universally flattering but they also help hide problem tummy's and love handles. As soon as I saw this floral peplum top I knew I had to have it. The ornate floral print reminded me of one of my favourite collections from Dolce & Gabbana ever, their Fall 2012 Ready to Wear collection which was inspired by their native Sicily and its baroque religious traditions.

Dolce & Gabbana Fall RTW 2012
 Inspired by the Dolce & Gabbana runway show I teamed the look with a small ornate evening bag and luxe gold and red jewellery. I painted my nails a deep blood red pulling the colour from the print of the top.

My red Miu Miu sunglasses completed the look with their glitter red frames and gold arms. The DIY cream floral headband added a personal OTT touch.

I still love a good flatform shoe and these patent black babies are a current fave.

Are you loving peplums right now too?
