Hi Everyone!The other night after trying to decide what to wear to a function and being stumped, I had to do what most of us do in life, call on a couple of my friends Petra and Jessica. I told them I had a houndstooth pencil skirt and I had to wear it. So while I was thinking of wearing a tank top with the skirt Petra suggested a peplum top and everyone agreed that it would definitely polish the look off. Houndstooth AKA dogstooth is such a classic check pattern that a peplum top worn with it, would complete the ladylike chic ensemble.

The problem was I do not own a peplum top, but I do own a black peplum dress, so with a little imagination I decided to wear the dress and put the skirt over it. It actually worked! What a genius idea! I was grateful for the hugging features the dress offered under the skirt as it served as a built in spanx ;) Give it up for the peplum top, it's been trending for a while now and I hope this trend lives on forever as it is so forgiving to a woman's body. It's as if the peplum top is to the tummy, what the cardigan sweater is to the arms, offering cover and sophistication.

So do you have any great styling tricks that you have used out of necessity? I would love to learn any new tricks from you guys as I continue to share mine here.
I am grateful for my friends that I can bounce things off, what would we be if we didn't have friends that we can turn to? Today I leave you with one of my favourite quotes :
"Each friend represents a world within us, a world possibly not born until they arrive." - Anais Nin
May you all be blessed with true and genuine friends.
