Ahh, words cannot describe how much I love this Anthropologie peplum top. I actually gasped out loud when I first saw this beauty as I was browsing through the Anthropologie website. I also gasped (but in a not-so-good way) when I saw that this top was backordered for 2 months! Yes, that’s right, 2 months! I hit that purchase button quicker than you can say I-need-you-in-my-closet-oh-beautiful-pink-fluffy-peplum-perfection, and patiently waited until the mailman came knocking.
This top is definitely a standout piece that I can’t help but feel special in when wearing. There are only a few sizes left in stock, but if you are really determined to have this lovely creation in your wardrobe, I recommend checking back on the Anthro website each day, or even a few times daily. This top is an online exclusive, and I’ve noticed that sizes keep coming and going out of stock. Another tip would be to call the Anthropologie customer support line, and they can inform you of any that have been returned to stores, which they can then ship to you.
As for fit, all of the online reviews state that this top runs small, however, my experience is that it runs true to-size, maybe even a little on the large side. Obviously I don’t need to state that the peplum is very large. I was concerned that it would overwhelm my 5’2″ frame, however, I quite like the dramatic and high fashion feel of the extra large peplum.
This outfit incorporates several new summer favorites in my wardrobe.
1. Converse Chuck Taylor’s: A staple in my childhood, teenage years, and twenties, I’ve owned the Converse Chuck Taylor’s in every colour in the rainbow. Now in my 30′s, classic white is perfect for my current style.
2. Club Monaco Jacket: I absolutely adore the shape of this jacket. With black and white match-with-everything stripes, I know I will get a ton of wear out of this great piece.
3. Chanel Sunglasses: A little retro, and a whole lotta fun, it was love at first sight with these Chanel shades. These will definitely be my summer sunglasses of choice.
