Peplum Party


Peplum Party? Yes Please! I recently made it out to the city, for one of my birthday rendezvous, leaving a purple and pink peplum trail behind. More of an intimate occasion with the boy, I enjoyed an evening without any rigid plans, simply soaking in the SF sights. I fell particularly in love with the 100 year-old hotel we spent the night at, The Hotel California, which is located in the heart of Old San Francisco. I don't know about you but I love finding destinations with so much history. It adds just that bit more of "sparkle" to a memory and this birthday was just one of those memories to keep.

A little note on this fabulous peplum number. A Los Gatos American Cancer Society local thrift store find, with a little tweak here and there, by my tailor, I just adore its 80's party flavor. Going big, rather than going home, I pulled from the shades of pink and purple, within the design, and paired it with some modern pieces to accent its full impact. I must say its one of my favorite outfits to date!
