Partying In A Peplum


Going for gold
Christmas socialising and the clothes required can take many forms, some of it demands high glam, other invites are slightly less dressy and of course house parties (unless fancy dress) are a  total free for all.
Take tonight, I'm going to a friends birthday party which is at her home and is informal, so I don't want to go too OTT but you know it is Christmas and it is a party so there needs to be some dressy element to to it.
Which is where this outfit by Pink Clove is perfect.

A gorgeous top by Pink Clove

I've a fairly new convert to the "Peplum" style, Ive always been suspicious that a frill of fabric around my middle is the very last thing my figure requires to look its best but having seen a few of my fave plus size bloggers rocking them I decided I should give them a try and I'm so glad I did.

This gold baroque velvet top  is so perfect for this time of year.The fabric feels really luxurious and the fact that the top and sleeves are black stops it just short of being too "Christmas bauble chic" and instead makes for a rather sophisticated take on low key partywear. Smart with a splash of glitter.
This fabric is lovely
I adore a pencil skirt-very Rizzo from Grease

Ive teamed it with a rather fab pencil skirt also by Pink Clove which is a snip at only £9. In fact as I've come to expect from Pink Clove the entire outfit only comes to £33 which is insanely cheap for well made plus size clothes.
I've teamed the skirt and top with tights, wedge heels and my fave leopard print bag. I feel sophisticated but also fun. Its impossible to take yourself too seriously with nearly half your outfit is gold.I feel like a sexy ice skater if ice skaters were fat and er couldn't skate-you know what I mean?

To compliment the gold of the top I've also worn my tiger necklace from primark.l I feel glam and festive but not too overdressed to stand in someones house and drink pink fizz. 
Glam bit not too overdressed

This outfit would also be great for Christmas day. the peplum on the top and elasticated waist on the skirt would be very forgiving after all the days eating but it feels fit for an "occasion"
The cut of this top would be very forgiving for Christmas day 

With this style of top I actually preferred it with a neat little shrug over the top, I can look ridiculously top heavy if I wear anything that's all one colour and I did prefer it with a cardigan but have shown you it worn both ways so you can get the full effect of the top.
I quite liked the top with this black shrug as I preferred the overall look more

Ive styled my hair into soft rolls at the front and for my make up have concentrated on giving my complexion lots of luminescence. I've just brought the Loreal universal glow beautifier and Im loving how dewy its making my skin look Something to work against the inevitable french flush I will be getting later.

  1. Wow! Like you i really thought that anything 'peplum' was a real no-go and would make my wobbly areas stand out more, how wrong, this actually gives a lovely silhouette (i want to say slimming, but i hate that, wearing clothes that make you look slim is such an oxymoron) anyway, it works and you look gorgeously glam as always. Thank you for the inspiration, i think i will be adding a peplum or 3 to my wardrobe now xx

  3. Ohhh love the skirt, and a brilliant price too! I am not a fan of peplums at all though, I just don't feel comfortable in them, no clue why
