The day they brought the peplum back in style, was a day that will go down in plus size fashion history! I know that some of you never saw the appeal, or are perhaps sick of it already…but I am a die-hard fan! And when I see fresh and modern takes on this classic shape like this Finn Abstract Peplum Top from Fashion to Figure, my soul rejoices a little more. From the bold, colorful paint brush print to the peek-a-boo detail at the neck…this peplum top is so fresh it hurts! And when you add a little sex appeal in the form of this Kaira Faux Leather Midi Pencil Skirt and a pop of Cherry Red Prynn Patent Tote, you’ve got a fabulous twist on an office wear classic silhouette. I’m in LOVE!!!
Sofia Amoruso’s #GIRLBOSS is full of great quotes such as “A #GIRLBOSS is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it.” Over the past year, I’ve taken this attitude to heart and it has informed the way I approach my life, my career, and my wardrobe. Instead of mailing it in when I am in a rush to get ready in the morning, I take time to figure out what image I want to project at the office. I make a conscious effort not to blend in — no one gets ahead by being invisible and keeping their head down. What’s my #GIRLBOSS wardrobe recipe? Strong, classic silhouettes in bold colors like this Citron Calvin Klein Textured Sheath Dress paired with stand-out accessories like these graffiti pumps from Brian Atwood. Just be sure your hemline and neckline are not too revealing and resist the temptation to over-accessorize!
