Mini Post: OOTD - Partying in Peplum

Went out for my girl’s 25th a few weeks back in San Francisco and wore a green sweetheart cocktail dress with a beautiful peplum waist! (Dress is from makati bazaar in the Philippines $12 USD).

Wanted to make the outfit fun so added a punchy coral necklace ($1.50 USD, from Phil) and a coral cross body bag with pink undertones.( $4.00 USD, from Phil) cross body bag keeps it fun, comfortable during the night out, and makes the look less dressy! Great alternative to a clutch!

Sleek high pony keeps the look clean, young, fresh. I wanted the cut of the dress, and necklace to be the focal point so it was a perfect easy do’ !

Paired with nude patent platform pumps (Aldo $60) and I was ready to hit the floor!

Don’t be afraid of pairing brights together for your evening wear this spring/summer! Definitely gives your cocktail dress a spunkier vibe and a fun twist!
