DD's Style File - I'm a Total Betty!

No, I'm not talking about Betty Rubble....even though with these humongous pearls around my neck I am channeling a bit of Wilma Flinstone! But hey, maybe she was a prehistoric "Betty!"

And by "Betty" I'm mean channeling a vintage era pin-up hottie!

I'm sure I've mentioned my love for peplum before, it's a trend that arrived on the scene in the 40's and continues to be timeless and flattering on all shapes of women. Among all the peplum pieces I've collected, this is the only peplum dress I have. And it's one of my wardrobe favorites, a piece I'll continue to wear as long as I can fit my body into it!

If they had made this dress in more colors, I have no shame in saying that I would have bought. them. all.

Don't judge me.

This dress simultaneously slims, creates curves, and conceals the parts of me I'm less fond of. And is the quintessential LBD, being able to transition from church (which is where I was heading), to cocktails with the girls, to after six event, to date night with the darling, and the list goes on. What more could you ask for?

And as proof that I'm not lying, I'm also wearing it here at my birthday dinner.

Dress: The Limited (similar)
Heels: Steve Madden (similar)
Clutch: Macy's (similar)
Necklace: H&M (similar)
If you somehow have managed to know try peplum yet, I encourage you to give it a try! You don't have to dive in the deep in first, start of with a top with a peplum waist paired with a slim fitting skirt or trouser, you just might be surprised!

Speaking of fashionable eras...my favorite show, Mad Men, just aired its series finale this past Sunday. Is anybody else as sad about it as I am?? Oh, how I'll miss the dashing (sober) Don Draper!
