Floral On Stripes

Credit where it's due, I have to admit that this look was copied from Nicky Hilton's last year as seen here.  Did you click on the link?  Coz if you did, you should've realized that this is quite a different take on her look. :P As soon as I saw her picture, I knew that however classy it looked, it's gonna be quite a challenge to recreate it.  It's really sad that some have predicted peplum as a transitional piece and hence finding an exact one in floral is not gonna be a good investment.  So, what to do?  I tried to "engineer" a floral peplum through layering - and in an unexpected way if I must add. Lol!  As seen below, here's a floral bustier thrown over a peplum top.  Yay or Nay? Haha!  The striped pencil skirt is something new and you could read a bit further about that in my other blog here. :)

I really love the peplum effect and here's to hoping it's here to stay! :P

Lace x Lace

Call me shallow but apart for getting style inspirations from current events, I do dress up when I think of a nice caption too.  I don't know why, lol! You wouldn't believe what a corny caption did I manage to pull off on this one but hey, atleast it's a good combination.  Haha!  This skirt which has always been a yardstick of how much I gained or lost has been fitting really well for the least month thanks to my improved diet! So much that even layering a lace dress underneath is even possible.  Yes, this is a lace dress indeed! It has that same stretch material as that of the skirt which needless to say is only worn when I'm feeling super fit.  So hopefully, you'll get to see more of this dress in the future.  Oh and by the way,  still haven't mentioned the caption yet right? I'll save you the trouble of going to my IG (cassey_cakes is the handler if you must know, lol!).  Ready?  This.

Lace on Lace.  Because everybody feels "lacey" on a Monday.

Ok, kill me now! =)))))))
