Purple / Peplum / Stripes

Jacket: Zara. Skirt: Zara. Handbag: Chanel. Shoes: Jimmy Choo. Sunglasses: Chanel. Shoe Charm Necklace: Gift from my Dad.

 

I am completely obsessed with this new Zara striped peplum jacket. Β I originally saw it on 2 bloggers in one day, and immediately phoned 3 Zara stores before finding it in stock. Β I can already envision all of the outfits I can create with this super versatile piece. Β The real challenge will be trying to not wear it every day. Β I apologize in advance if you see way too much of this jacket in the near future.

    OMG Jenny I LOVE LOVE LOVE this jacket! I may be calling around myself heh. It looks great with this purple skirt! For a girl who was hesitant to wear peplum I think you’ve found a new friend πŸ˜‰ You’re rockin it!

      Ha ha, I was in LOVE with peplum right from the start! πŸ™‚ It is just so flattering on my curvy body and hides some flaws that I want hidden! Thank you so very much Nic!

    What a fun jacket! I don’t know why but I can never find anything at Zara…their cut just fit me right… I think that’s a good thing for my wallet.

    I finally took the plunge & bought a peplum top today. Now I gotta figure out how to style it.

      Thanks Alice! I bet you’ll find the peplum top easier to style than you think. As for Zara, I too have a hard time finding stuff that fits me well. For every item I buy, I probably tried on 10 other pieces that didn’t look good. It can definitely be frustrating.

    So sweet – it’s ladylike with a twist! Is the skirt a recent Zara purchase (i.e. still available)?

      Thanks so much Alexandra! Unfortunately, I bought this skirt on sale in April-ish (I think it was from their winter collection last year), so it’s not available anymore.
