Last weekend my husband and I headed to a friend’s house for a dinner party. It was a rainy and gloomy evening so I wanted to brighten the mood with a fun outfit. What could be more fun than a polka dot peplum top and red skinny jeans? I must admit that I am very self conscious about by thighs and it takes courage for me to wear anything other than dark pants. These James jeans are remarkably comfortable and somewhat slimming. A trick I use to distract from my bottom half is to really dress up my top half. The peplum top gives the elusion of a smaller waist and the statement necklace draws the eye up towards my face. My mother gave me this cute little Talbots clutch a while ago and I loved how the stripes mixed well with the polka dots. Lastly, a nice stiletto heel makes the legs appear longer and me appear taller! I hope these little tips can help you when piecing an outfit together.
