Faux-Leather & Vintage Peplum

SONY DSC

Hope everyone is having an awesome Friday night!

Today I took it back to the 80’s! The top is a total vintage ( 80’s) blouse I scored at the thrift store a few months back. Actually, my sister got this for my birthday back in April! I loved this top but that the time, I didn’t fit right. It was too tight. Thankfully, I have trimmed down some more and now it actually fits lovely. I thought I would get it altered but I am not, I actually love the way it looks. I wanted to keep things neutral so I wore these with my faux-leather jeans ( it was a bit cold this morning) and my oh-so fabulous silver shoes. I must mention that these are also part of my x-mas present….

Side note –  I don’t do well with wrapped gifts. I actually tell my boyfriend what I want and he buys it. There is no point of having them wrapped it I know what I am getting. Therefore, I wear all of my x-mas presents way before x-mas 🙂

I wanted to keep the outfit edgy so I wore this metal clutch to keep the metallic’s going. The clutch was actually purchased in New Orleans – which explains why its so cool.

Total cost of Outfit: $84.00

Ok, so I think that lately i have been slightly obsessed with animal print. Not sure why, but i have been in the mood to wear EVERYTHING animal print ha ha ha. I think it might my inner animal instinct.

The Outfit

The top is a gorgeous vest I found at goodwill and decided to pair it with this pencil skirt because the top is subtle yet it adds an element of surprise to the whole outfit. I know, less is more but this just looks smoking together! I’ve added a picture below of the vest so that you can see the details better. I can’t wait to pair the vest with a pair of olive green pants and perhaps a pair of nude pumps, to give it that military flare?! The skirt you might recognize from the Target and Altuzarra collection and it is as pretty as it is in the pictures. I just the slit on the skirt; however; let’s not talk about my much needed tan! And I live in Florida! lol.
