Anthropologie Daksha Pink and Neon Peplum Top by Manish Arora

Top: Anthropologie (on sale!). Skirt: Club Monaco (similar). Heels: Boutique 9 (similar). Watch: Michael Kors. Bracelets: Lauren Elan ID Bracelet, BCBG, J.Crew. Rings: Coach, The Bay. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

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.

      Thanks Jamie! My initial thought was to wear it with jeans, but then a dressy event came up, so I reached for this skirt. I can’t wait to wear it with denim too.

    Is the top embroidered? IT is so much fluffy pink goodness! I love the pencil skirt you paired it with. Truly a gorgeous, stand out piece. It looks couture, not off the rack. Beautiful!

    I remember seeing this on Blair A-P ages ago and searching the EU site for it to no avail. It’s very dramatic, such a statement piece. I recall you posted on Insta a while ago about it so glad it finally arrived. You wear it well. Will it transition to autumn/winter or be a purely warm weather piece do you think?

    • Jenny
      July 17, 2013

      Yes, I saw it on her also and she styled it perfectly. I purchased this top before Blair posted it, so I’m sure it sold out instantly once she wore it. 🙂 Hmm, I’m not sure yet if I’ll be able to wear it in the Fall/Winter. I haven’t tried to put a jacket over it yet, but I’ll definitely play around with it next time I try it on.

    The peplum top is gorgeous. I love the colors, the print, and the ruffle peplum. I’ve never seen a top like this before so I can understand why it was backordered for 2 months now.

    Jenny, so gorgeous 🙂
    I just bought a peplum top from Anthropologie this past weekend, blk/white striped. I put it on and felt overwhelmed with the bulky ness of the peplum. I have a little experimenting to do.

    • Jenny
      July 17, 2013

      I know what you mean. Peplums can seem overwhelming for women who don’t wear them often. My suggestion would be to keep trying them on, and I’m sure you will find one that you feel comfortable wearing. Also, the more you try them on, the more used to it you get. Thanks so much, Donna!

  • Ani

    Probably the most beautiful peplum I have ever seen, shapewise and colourwise. How pretty would it be as a Dress too? 🙂 Maybe you can Forward it to your Little daughter in a couple of years. Justin- GET READY! hahahhaa 😉

    I’ve been in love with this top for months! But I couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on it. And of course as soon as it went on sale – sold out in my size 🙁

      July 17, 2013

      Yes, this is definitely an investment piece. I hesitated for about 2 seconds because of the price, but it was one of those things that I knew I would forever regret not buying. Thanks Jackie!

    I adore this top and I’m so envious you can wear it so well. I have had a love/hate with peplum but it looks amazing on you. It’s honestly such an amazing piece (I can see why it was a 2 month wait)

      Aww, thanks Melissa! Hahaha, yes, I think a lot of women have a love/hate with peplum. I’m curvy and short, and I find that they really suit my body shape, as long as they are fitted in the waist. Looser peplums usually make me look a lot heavier. 🙂
