This week’s Friday Frock is a stunner I tell you, a stunner.
Reiss Fallow crepe open back column dress £225
Oh to have somewhere to wear this beauty.
It’s got more than a hint of the Victoria Beckhams about it, with the modern clean style, an immensely flattering cut and streamlined peplum.
There’s also currently up to 30% of selected items at Reiss.com in the mid-season sale online only, so do you and have a little look if you’re a fan.
It’s been a busy week for me – I’m currently in the Lake District on a course and looking forward to getting back to Manchester, Pete and the new house 🙂
Enjoy your weekend readers!
Consider this your first heads up for the coming Autumn Winter ’12 season… Peplums are going to be HUGE. Happily they’re already in the shops and I fancied trying out the trend, particularly when I spotted this one when I did the Zara spring drop post a couple of weeks ago.
I nipped into store to pick it up and then wore it to the Florence Finds Manchester afternoon tea, so I decided I should probably share it with you all.
Top – Reiss (old) // Skirt – Zara £39.99 // Shoes – M&S Autograph (old) // Necklace – Shop sale accessories
I just love how feminine the shape is, that unabashed celebration of your female curves, with a nipped in waist and flared out frill over the hips. Granted, it could be tricky to wear if you’re a true english pear, but I actually think if you’re prepared to flaunt it and have the waist to balance out a fuller bottom half, it’s a killer look.
I paired mine with an old silk top I have from Reiss in fresh white as I love Red and white together, then my zip fronted snakeskin sandals from M&S Autograph. The necklace was a sale find in Warehouse recently that is slightly broken but you can’t really tell, a bargain at £6!
It’s a little creasy as it’s a linen mix, so not one for perfectionists on that front, but it’s actually really comfortable too, as the skirt itself has some stretch in it, great for if you sit down a lot at work like me.
So, do you like a peplum and will you be trying out the trend?
