Some things were just meant to be...




I didn't really have the intentions of buying a peplum dress, but some things just work out that way. It was a birthday gift, found by me in TKMaxx. I was browsing through the dress racks for nothing in particular and just saw the label sticking out & it said the word 'Doll' on the label, so I knew this dress and I were meant to be!! I pulled the dress out from all the other clothes and decided I liked it. So home it went with me as my last birthday gift (I had birthday money, so that's why I was picking out my own gift). And on one bright and sunny day, I decided to go out for a walk with it on and see how it fit, which is what I do with all my new clothes, I like to see how they move and think of how I might wear them in different ways, walking in nature helps me think better and more creatively. The dress fits like a glove and is quite soft inside and out. But, a little plain for me, so I intend on getting some Art Nouveau fabric and dolling it up to look different :) I like to do that with a lot of my clothes! But, anyways...I hope all of you have a great day & the sun is shining for you wherever you may be!!

Lots of loves
xoxo

P.S. I was featured on Trust Your Style's Signature Style: Fall Obsessions yesterday, it was a lot of fun, thank you Mary Jo for asking me to take part. You can see it here!

  4. Well the dress is amazing and really flatters your figure. You look gorgeous!! I also was a bit reluctant about peplum style but this weekend I finally bought a peplum top... It's so feminine!! ;-)

  6. Oh, this dress looks so good on you.
    i know what you mean - I am really not a fan of the peplum, which is why I have avoided trying any of it on at any point.

  24. Kizzy,

    It looks fantastic on you! I used to have a navy peplum suit that I adored. I love the little flounce and how it drapes over the midriff. :)

    Have a great day sweetie and thanks for the birthday wishes!♥

  26. Kizzy, you look EXQUISITE doll! I LOVE that dress on you. With your figure, that peplum dress looks awesome on you. That dress was waiting for you to pick it up! HaHaHa I love the textured tights with it. You added your own twist to it. Love that! You know, I can also see a really beautiful pin attached to the dress. I think that would be really pretty. Give it a try! The dress is such a pretty canvas. Hope you're having a great day.

  27. Oh it looks just gorgeous on you ! Cute stockings too. I have had my prejudices about peplums, but they seem to look great on various body types so I guess I'll have to try some blouses / dresses on myself! :)

    Thank you for all the comments lately, I read all of them <3

  57. You look so pretty here and I really love what you have to say about wearing your new clothes and walking in nature to get a sense of them--that is just brilliant and I'm going to start doing that! Also love that you picked up on that little sign on the tag--I do that kind of thing a lot, the signs are always there and when you're not looking for them, then you really have to pay attention! Love!
