Peplum Confusion

Peplum skirt, plus size peplum skirt, plus size fashion, JIBRI

Life in California has been pretty awesome this week.  I had a major (and I mean major) media outlet interview me this week.  Once it materializes, I definitely clue you in, but just note when I got the email my stomach started hurting. (A symptom that I often get when I'm nervous).  I also made some good connections.  I found an wonderful tailor (yes this important in my mind).  The shop I'm going to is Vitarelli Tailoring in Santa Clara.  It's run by the cutest Italian older gentleman, who definitely has skills.   I can say that I am starting to get acclimated to California living.  The mosquitoes are still the devil, but aren't they always going to be?  I also bought tickets the indie show for FFFWeek.  I kind of pumped.  I love New York and I love being in the among people with common interests   It's like being around family.  Anyways, I hope I get to see some of you next month.  

Style Note:  Santa Clara/San Francisco weather can be quite chilly.  You always need to have a jacket, but I hate trying to pair jackets with peplums.  It totally confuses me, it always seems like way too much is going on when I try to wear a long coat.  I opted for a short cap for minimal interference with the peplum. If it had been colder I would have opted for a Canadian Icons jacket.  I still don't think it was the best choice, but it was the best of what I had.  I'm still working on the perfect solution.

  1. Re mosquitos, the only thing that ever seems to stop them biting me is citronella oil. In case you've never tried it you can get a little bottle at health stores. Its insanely strong so just mix a few drops with water in a spray bottle then spray sheets and exposed skin. Not the best smell but insects detest it! Xx

  5. old school Avon skin so so helps me with mosquitos.. unless I am in Florida. They got a different breed down there. Then I use Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent, but it smells to the high heavens.

    I always check the Target jewelry clearance bins. You find lots of surprises there.

  8. You look so great in this! I just want to say a huge THANK YOU for being confidently you. As someone who has struggled with really crap body image for years (even when thin), you help me to realise that it is totally possible to look fabulous at any size and to just get over myself :)

    1. I bought a similar skirt a couple years ago from ASOS - that's the only other place that I've seen it. I would check and see if they've restocked.
