A funny thing happened during my blog hiatus. I got caught up on my reading and actually became interested in a couple of new trends that will probably carry over to spring and summer. Here's one I got into pretty late - the peplum trend! I actually like this but not when it's over-done. Of course that didn't stop me from buying a leather peplum belt during a sale at ASOS Curve. It arrived quickly and was well-packaged. But, wow. This was one serious accessory. I wasn't sure about it at first, but it fit great and did NOT make me feel like a dominatrix. So I bit the bullet and wore it to work with one of my vintage dresses and my light velvet coat. I ended up loving it and getting lots of complements. What do you think?

Now, I'm feeling super-inspired by my bloggy friends at FatGirlsLikeNiceClothesToo and TheCurvyFashionista to create my own peplum belt for the spring. Wish me luck on that! Oh, and forgive the blogger-in-the-bathroom shots. Now that the sun is out I'll be taking snaps a few times a week outside.
