Recessionista Part 3: Peplum

The wind was just not cooperating with me today! Oh well. Here are some shots of my girly-girl, peplum pencil skirt (well, more like a midi skirt, I think I may get it tailored). And yep, you guessed it, I purchased it at my local thrift store (are we getting bored with this or what).

Peplum has been seen on the spring runways, in magazine prints, and in all the trendy boutiques this season. I was ecstatic when I found this little number over the weekend. Oh, you want to know the price? Alright...I'll tell ya... $4.99! A great steal for a classic, statement piece. I love the throw back feel of this skirt paired with the boldness of the black and white stripes/leopard skinny belt. Fun, yet chic.

Today's Photo Bloopers...

Attention, attention: I'm still getting used to this photography/posing stuff! I hope you are all getting a kick out of these pictures. Today, I was on my own, running back and forth from my camera to my standing spot. My neighbors and their dogs found it quite amusing! Oh boy. ;)
